Challenges 4 Everybody

Well its time for a new challenge over at Challenges 4 Everybody We  have as our sponsor this week  Bugaboo stamps  If you link up with your entry and you are randomly picked, you get to pick 7 free digis of your choice. So come on and join in the fun as always, its Anything goes.. We also have some new Design Team members starting for the very first time this week so don't forget to pop into there blogs and say hi..
With this card I used the lovely Flower-Block-Names--Violet.  It is such a pretty image and I so love bugaboos flowers, they are just so much fun to work with..
So here is my card...

Well this was quite an eventful card. I was doing the embossing for the background of my card and popped the paper and the embossing folder in my bigshot. I then went to wind the handle and a HUGE huntsman spider crawled out of it.. Well you can imagine my reaction it was nearly on my hand.. So don't think the plastic slides where ever meant for catching spiders but the where very useful for scooping him up and chucking him outside.. I just wish I had of taken a photo..
Here is a video so you can see how big he was.. Mine was about 3 inches big so just scared me just a little...  Still a bit jittery when I used my bigshot today don't think I will ever just wind the handle and not think of the spider..

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges..

  7. So pretty! I love the pop of violet against the white.
    I do not, however, love that spider. Eek! (Not a fan of bugs!) Glad you were able to get him scooped up and outside where he belongs!

    1. I forgot to mention that I saw your card on Make It Monday! :)

  8. Fantastic card! I LOVE the purple and green together. I found you at Make It Monday.

  9. What a beautiful card, the colours are so rich. And beautiful image.
    I popped over from MIM to take a closer look.

  10. Great bold colours and blocking. I would have screamed for quite a few minutes and ran out of the house if I saw a spider like that! Oh my Goodness!! I saw this on MIM

  11. First, if I found a spider that big, I would have to move out of the house! LOL

    I like the colors and how you did the layout of your card. The little tags are adorable.

    Your card caught my eye on MIM. Thanks, for sharing!

  12. Hi honey, I saw your card on Make It Monday and had to pop over to take a closer look. The embossing is the perfect backing for this pretty card.

  13. I love the colours you used! Thanks so much for entering our Anything Goes challenge at Bugaboo's Catch the Bug blog. Good luck in the draw!

  16. Yuk, I don't like huntsman spiders one little bit. I don't blame you for being a tiny bit shaky, LOL. It certainly would have made a mess if you'd squashed him in the machine!!!
