If you are a web surfer (aka BLOG surfer) like me – you often see ideas and pictures that you try to remember and use for yourself! The official term would be CASE which essentially means (from what I’ve worked out) to Copy Another Stampers Example! I guess imitation is the best form of flattery! Anyway, last week I noticed on the website of these spooky little spiders she had made for Halloween.

As a non-Halloween fan, I didn’t make anything but I have been thinking and thinking about the theme for Baby Matthew’s first birthday later this month. The invitations are just waiting for my chosen theme. I was going to use the Sail Boat stamp from the Nursery Necessities set but then I got to thinking............... what about bugs and critters???

I don’t have any stamp sets yet that would suit the bugs and critters theme – so I wondered and wondered could I make my own. I didn’t want my critters to be spooky spiders though, so I tried a cute spider and a ladybird instead!

As you can see – they are so simple. You just need cardstock, glue/adhesives, pipe cleaners and a pen (to colour in the eyes or try googly eyes!). I used the colours from Stampin’ Up!’s fantastic colour range of Purely Pomegranate, Whisper White and Night of Navy. What colour combo’s would you use???

Amazing what punches and scissors can do! Definitely takes me away from the baby theme!
