Are Bears Afraid of Spiders?

Apparently Gruffies are.

Seriously, the challenge over at House Mouse and Friends this time is Halloween.Ā  I know that I just used my Gruffie stamp last challenge, but it is the only HM Halloween stamp that I have (at least so far). I used the sketch from Card Patterns and this is what I came up with:

I swear, the next time I use the stamp, I will used Patches with his pumpkin, but he just didn’t fit on the circle. I knew that I wanted to use some creepy crawly spiders but I couldn’t find any good spider webs. That is until I saw my wide spider web ribbon. I trimmed a piece down to just focus on a single web and then added some little punched spiders. While it isn’t quite perfect, I like the affect.


  1. Great card…I love when you can use and use your house mouse images for many seasons! Very creative!

  7. Are bears afraid of spiders, if my cat can run away scared of flies Michelle, I’m sure Gruffies can be afraid of spiders.
    Love your spotty papers, great colouring of the adorable Gruffie and fantastic work on your spiders and web.
    So glad you could play along with us at House Mouse & Friends,
    hugs Heather xx

  8. oh this is really cool – love how you created the web. I haven’t got a Halloween stamp at all but I think I might just manage a spooky card. Half done and fingers crossed that my idea works.
