Stamp Something Challenge

Good morning! This weeks Stamp Something Challenge is sponsored by Roses on Paper. The them this week is spring! I'm glad spring is here in some ways, but I sure do miss the lack of bugs in the winter. And OMG, speaking of bugs....Okay, so I started on this card Wednesday night. I started off with a totally different image, and had the card mostly done but didn't like the how the image looked with the papers, so I tried another. Didn't like it either, so I just decided to finish later. So Thursday I went back to finish this card, and as I was holding it up to tie the ribbon something came slithering out of it! I just started screaming and threw it down. It was a centipede...UGH!! WTF was a centipede doing in my stamp room? Or my house period for that matter! Well of course as usual, most of my stamp table was so cluttered with stuff I didn't put away I couldn't see most of the table. When I spotted him again, he was disappearing under my bookshelf (my stamp table is really deep, so I put a bookshelf on it to hold my stamps). OMG, I am so creeped out about this thing being in my stamp room. They are freaking scary looking, not to mention all those ugly little legs, and they bite! I thought about taking everything off the bookshelf and moving it, but that would take forever, and he's probably not under there anymore anyway. Oh, and I looked up centipedes online to see how long they live...I was hoping they were like some bugs that only live a few days...I read they can live up to 6 years..not a comforting thought. I hope I'll get lucky and he'll just leave. Can ya tell I don't like bugs. I'm such a wuss. Anyway, here is my card. I used a really old Mojo Monday sketch again (#2) on this card.

I have to tell you Emily that I am right there with you thinking a centipede in my stamp room is an absolutely chilling experience. SIX years - shudder! We had a centipede in our bedroom last summer - UGH!
