Did you hear the screaming?....

I know you could hear the screaming today, I even scared the dog. Some protection he was. I am a city girl - all city. I grew up in Brooklyn, NY and I lived in Baltimore, MD for over 10 years. So would someone please tell me when did they start making spiders this big? OMG! Needless to say, I emptied the can of Raid on that Jurassic thing. Ok, now that you have stopped laughing at me, I have two cards to share. That's all my nerves could squeak out.

  1. Oh no, I'm not laughing at you! I'm horrified at that ginormous spider! I wouldv'e been screaming too! Bet that gave you the heebie geebies for a long while! Love your ice cream card. So sparkly :)

  2. OMG...I cannot believe how big that spider is. I would have screamed too. I have seen some big spiders but that is huge.

    Love your cards.


  3. OH HOLY MONKEYS! I am a country girl. I grew up around horses, bags of seed, collecting eggs from the chickens, and hay bales but that spider scares the bejeebies out of me! I hate, hate, HATE, spiders. uck!

  21. Sorry Darlin' but I have to tell you that we get them that big and bigger here.. :( So sad... I actually had one about that big on my kitchen ceiling last summer! I freaked, big time! I actually had to go grab my neighbor, who JUST moved in and ask him to come take care of it, because my husband was at work!! Whew... not a spider fan here.. and they're everywhere in the summer! Ugh... anywhooo.. onto your lovely cards!! I love them! Great Glittery ice cream! Yum! And, of course, I love your patriotic kitty! Wonderful cards!
