“Boo!” is what I just said to my craft room!!  It’s been awhile since its seen any action.  So with Halloween fast approaching, here are a couple of cards for the grandkids.  The little ones aren’t that old yet, so wanted to keep the cards cute and fun.  (“Are spiders ever cute and fun?” you ask.)  Maybe?…


This one sure has a messy nest with lots of funky fibers and ribbon and


spooky eyes!  hehe
