     This is a birthday card and not a Halloween card, but there is a story behind this card as to why I made it.  This is a birthday card for my oldest son(43 yrs old) I never realized how afraid he was of spiders until his wife told me a story about when he thought there was a spider on him and how he reacted to it.  Now mind that  he is an Eagle Scout and when he was in the Scouts he did a lot of camping outdoors and to think of all the kinds of bugs that were out there. He  goes camping with his son who is in the scouts nowSo I thought this would be a cute idea to make a card with spiders. Anyway I hope he thinks it is funny. I know his wife and kids will.
