Challenge 37 ... Flourishes/Swirls ...

Wishing a Happy Friday to you all and why wouldn't you be happy when you know that every Friday brings a new Bah! Humbug! Challenge?  Before moving onto this week's theme, I thought you'd be pleased to hear that our Guest Designer Barbs is doing a grand job dealing with 'the scuttlers' while Ann's away.  In fact, she's doing so well we may have to consider promoting her to "Executive Chief Spider-Catcher Extaordinaire!"   
It must be said that they have left behind some beautiful webs, so rather than waste them, I thought it would be a good idea to make use of them by spraying them silver and gold and - VOILA!   Humbug Hall is magically decorated ready for Halloween with no effort whatsoever ... and, more importantly,  it was much more fun than doing the dusting - tee hee.  GENIUS!  What was not quite so GENIUS is that I forgot to tape paper behind them before spraying - WHOOPSIES!  - hmmmmm ... I predict some time on the naughty step when Ann finds out.
Ah well let's not worry about that for now but focus on this week's challenge theme instead which is

Flourishes and Swirls
Christmas simply wouldn't be Christmas without a few of these and Barb and I have examples which will hopefully inspire you to play along.  Just click the links below to visit our DT personal blogs to find out how we created them or if you'd like to leave us a message, we always really appreciate your comments and opinions.

  7. Wow, Max, thanks for the promotion! I haven't seen any spiders here at "Wibel's Web" this week, either. Must have scared them away with that 10-foot pole! Love the idea of spraying the webs, though! I love your shiny cards! Gotta try that folding style. Sending big hugs!
