Spiderman Birthday

Hey Everyone!
I totally meant to post this card the other day, but here in Canada it's been Thanksgiving, so I've been very busy working, and when I wasn't working I was enjoying spending time with my family and indulging and amazing food.  
For those of my friends in Canada I hope that you had a fantastic weekend with family and friends and that you have had time reflecting and being thankful for the things that you have in you life.
 We have so much to be thankful for in this beautiful Country.

I had mentioned on my Facebook page that I wouldn't be posting anything Sunday because of thanksgiving...however I think that this post should count for 2 days simply because I created 6 cards.

As I've mentioned before I have been working through a couple different commission orders, so these cards were perfect to complete a couple commission cards and for me to put a couple of these in my stash for future use. 

These cards were really fun to make and I really enjoyed that they had sort of a Halloween feel to them too, based on the products used, and the spider webs and spiders.

Usually I don't get a chance to show the cards leading up to the finished product and the thought process that goes into them, but I hope that you enjoy a little of that with these cards.  

Here's a picture of me spraying the spiders with shimmer mist. Keep in mind I used 4 times as many as these on the actual cards...

Here's Spiderman ready to make his way onto the cards...

Here's there front view of one of the cards...

Here's a side view of that same card...
