A New Kit, a Freebie Mini and...a Spider!

The week has flown and I have not been able to fly as fast as it's gone by! I need wings on my heels and a pair of running shoes, lol! But I have just put a new kit in the shop at Scrappin Digi Kreations and it's a bit different for me..so I hope you all will like it. It's called little Weeds and it's a little shabby, a little grungy and a little cute!! And...I have a little Page Kit in a similar style as the freebie for today which I hope you'll be able to use.

And here's the new kit!

You can download it here

As usual the kit is 40% off for the first week..so if you like it grab it now and get a bargain!!

And I have to tell you............

The sun is shining, I can't quite believe it..sun...two days in a row. No, I haven't gone on holiday, I'm still in England!! So, lucky me will take the afternoon off and it's the garden for me!! I haven't blinked all morning..no chance...if I do it might vanish!! Lol!

Last night we had the biggest spider yet in the house..and yes, it was just next to my computer! So, as my DH was out I cornered my son and asked him to move it for me. I just hate spiders!! By this time I had my knees pushed firmly together..I didn't want it running up my trouser leg!! The shivers were going down my spine just looking at it and that creeping feeling was washing over my skin.

Armed with a paper he went to whack it....."Stop!! Don't kill it!! He looked at me as if I was insane and sighed. Tactics changed...he slowly edged the paper to get it under it..but that stupid spider was having none of it!! Ungrateful thing!!

After 10 minutes he gave up and got a glass...but could that thing move!! It's legs were so long I could see it's little trainers, lol!! By now my son was having a serious sense of humour breakdown and the spider was in serious trouble. He decided the only speedy solution was to jump on it...aah! He jumped and I screamed (yes, I know..I'm a whooze!). Poor boy I scared the life out of him..so, he slipped on the mat and bang, down he went! Ouch!

He didn't get really mad until I yelled "Oh my god, you haven't hurt it have you?" That was it!! He left me to the spider's tender mercy...the spider I might add was looking good, not a dent in sight. I never said I wanted him to hurt it....only move it!!!So now I am in the doghouse....yet again!!

OK, now for today's little bit of trivia:

Did you know that a driver will on average lock themselves out of their car nine times during their driving lifetime... OK, I've used my quota already so some other lucky person will get less, lol!!

But for now the garden is waiting and so I'm off!! have a great day and I hope the sun shines for you too!

Hey there June ;) I'm having the SAME week! I cannot believe it is Thursday and I'm still trying to figure out what happened to Monday? Seriously, I think there is something weird going on in the planets and spiritual realms! Thank You for the cute page kit and humor regarding the spider... I caught a lizard FINALLY ( in a cup ) that has been loose in the house for a week now so I can relate :)

Your spider story was hilarious. What exactly is a "whooze" ?? That's definitely a term I haven't yet heard here in the U.S. :)

The sampler is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.

Love the new kit !!! Going right on over there now to grab it ...

Thanks for your great story ... uggghhh to spiders !!!

My parents live near the native bush here in NZ .. and my bedroom just happened to back on to the "wonderful" scenery ...more often than not ... I'd have "visitors" of the 8 legged kind "defending" my doorway ... urgghhh.. some of them huge big bush spiders .. small compared to some I've heard of ... but as a little kid .. HUGE .. no wonder I have an intense fear of them now .. Unfortunately the boys favourite book is on bugs and spiders .. and LOVE the spider page .. and I can never quite flip the page over quick enough .. lol! They always know if I "miss" the page too .. lol... Have a nice day .. and thank you for your wonderful talent!

Your new kit is lovely - thanks very much for sharing this neat sampler!!

I feel the same way as you do about spiders! They don't bother me if they are outside - but not in the house.

Enjoy immensely reading your blog.

What a darling new kit! Thanks for the sampler, it's great!

Elizabeth said...

Thanks for the kit, my son (20) would scream and call me! And spiders often get bad treatment from me, although most bugs I escort out as gently as possible. It's just spider bites can be bad, you know.
