Will you step into my parlour?



Barb over at Haunted Design House chose the theme "Appalling Arachnids" and if you'd like to see an absolutely scrumptious tin, have a look on the blog as Lynx has made a beauty :)
And a fter I'd made my piece, I liked the colour scheme so much that I created a paper set around it, the delicious yet dirty "Mint Choc Chip Muddle"
The spider started as a public domain vintage image, and the text of course, comes from the poem by Mary Howitt.
These are the challenges I was working towards:
What If Wednesday, sketch J1410
Creative Inspirations - chocolate and mint
Alphabet Challenge - M is for Men
Speedy the Cat's Friends - masculine
The Crafty Pad - vintage
Donna's Den of Crafts - mostly green

Love your spider Susan.... and your digi papers.... i really need a black and red set like the halloween bride or velvet set... a bit of grey would be ok?

I shall be shopping with you soon.... your papers are to die for! Wish i was half as techno minded as you! So glad we are on the same team!
love lynx
