Halloween Criss-Cross Card

German Phrase of the Day: Ich will mich nicht argern. = I don't want to get angry. one really wants to get angry, do they?? Sich argern is pronounced zihkh AYR-gehrn for those interested in the pronunciation. It's supposed to have an oomlot over the a to make it more of a long a sound.

I was a busy girl yesterday. I actually completed 4 projects yesterday! Woohoo!! Love it when I get time to stamp, especially now that I'm feeling so much better. This is the last project, which I completed around 10pm last night. I just loved Beate's wonderful tutorial for this card, and had to try it out. It's a really fun project to do.

I considered just completelly CASEing her card because it is so perfect...but then had the wonderful brainstorm of making a Halloween card instead since I had just been looking through all my new designer paper. I was so excited to use not only new designer paper, but my new Party Time stamp set. I just love this little cat...especially since we have a wonderful little black kitty ourselves!

The spider and inside greeting is from a retired set...I think it's called Creeping By?? Oh man, now I'm going to have to go look it up! Found's called Web Wishes. How could I forget that?? Anyway, I used the adorable little spider from that set for the front, and colored her in with markers. I think she's the perfect little accent for that spot, and she covers up where the belly-band doesn't quite reach together! I'm going to have to make more of these's just too fun!

Supplies: (all supplies are SU! unless otherwise noted)
Stamps: Web Wishes (retired), Party Punch
