Daring cardmakers challenge!!

I have had such a lovely day today. We have had a bit of a family BBQ with my dad, big sis and hubby and their children and it was sooo much fun!!! you should of seen the "trying to get a photo with us all in with camera's on timer" palava!! it was so funny!!!!!
(*lou cringes at her face in some of the pictures!!!!!)
Anyway, my lovely friend Enfys showed me the way to postpals today with the Daring cardmakers challenge so I decided to jump in and do one.
Oh my, I had a tough time reading the little stories and an even tougher time choosing but I decided on Tie D, he had such a cute,cheeky look on his face I couldn't resist him!!!!
I used one of Lily-boo’s boutique
for my cute spider circle and heat embossed the spider with my embossing pen and some sparkly black powder, I coloured his little boots red and then put 3d gloss over him t make him stand out a bit. I went over the web with a silver pen and doodled a bit to!!! I embossed the mat with tiny bubbles, inked it white and then added a little ribbon with tie's name in little wooden alphabet stickers from my stash and a little bit of silver thread. The love and bugs is from my ugly bugs set from andrea. On the inside I made up a sentiment that says
" Have a bug-ely day" ( instead of have a lovely day!!)
So my little spider will be going on a little trip in the mail and plop onto Tie's doormat this week!! I hope it makes him smile!!!! If you have a spare minute pop on over to daring cardmakers and join in with the challenge.
Thankyou for popping in!!!!!
