4 More for the pot!

Good morning Ladies, hope everyone is well. Another gloomy wet day outside! Hope it's better where you are.
 Well I had the biggest spider in my living room this morning. OMG,  I got my hubby out of bed to get rid of it before it started to re-arrange the furniture lol. So there he was in his undies climbing on a chair with a bowl in one hand to catch it in, which he did, but this one must have been in the Olympics cos it jumped clean out and hubby had to chase it before finally cornering it and poking it in to submission.
 I must have made that much noise my daughter got up to see what was going on.  We made him wade out into the garden far enough away so he could throw Goliath over the wall, don't want him back! Hope the neighbours didn't see him.
 Hubby earned himself a coffee before returning to bed to finish his beauty sleep. Well it was only 6:30.am Bless him.
 Well got my Christmas club cards to share with you this morning which I might add are on time for a change! Wheyhey. It was the turn of the lovely Deb to chose the theme. We were to make 4 tags or 4 small Christmas cards and I chose the cards. I had been to LOTV shop a couple of weeks before and had bought some of their fab new stamps and these are some of them. (Yeah, 4 more cards for Christmas)

  29. OMG, Sue! Sounds like it was a 3 ring circus at your house this morning! LOL! My hubby would have squashed it against the wall and then I'd have to figure out how to convince everyone that spider guts on the wall is SO trendy right now!

  37. These are so beautiful and elegant, I love the rich red. Our weather has been miserable too and we have been getting loads of massive spiders, we always do at this time of year as we are surrounded by fields and when they harvest we get loads of massive hairy looking spiders lol
