Paper Playtime - #17 Pearls

Pearls, I love them! 
I wear mine mostly to church and wasn't going to write about that but I looked up 
the meaning of the pearl and it said:
With it's humble beginnings, Pearls symbolize innocence and a pure heart, and help us get in touch with the simple honest things of life. Pearls symbolize the best within us.  Honesty, Purity , Wisdom and Integrity.  They remind us to walk with Dignity. Pearls can stimulate your femininity and help with self acceptance. They lift your spirits and make you feel calm and beautiful.  
it also said:
"Vibrates to the number 7" ( and the #7 has significant meaning in the bible....hmmmm )
also they were inherited from my mother ( and she is a Gemini ) and it said this:
Astrological Sign:  Cancer and Gemini
Now I am a Pisces and it says:
Elements: Water
wow, no wonder I love them so much!
And if you want to read the emotional reason as to why I love my mother's pearls so much then you can check what I wrote: My Mother's Pearls
Also there are pearl idioms:
cast (one's) pearls before swine
 to waste something good on someone who doesn't care about it. (From a biblical quotation.) 
a pearl of wisdom
an important piece of advice

I'm on a Halloween kick I admit, ya'll must be use to my early "occasion" cards by now. In the beginning of September I will be putting out the Halloween cards and tags so I need to be ready! I had this great black moon die cut in my stash that I have no idea where it came from but I thought it would make a fab Halloween card especially with the spider dangling off his head.

I used a large pearl for his eye and then liquid pearls to decorate him with....and I see from the close up that I had one liquid pearl drop that didn't cooperate, but oh well, that's what makes it a handmade card, lol

I love your background about the pearls. I am wearing my mother's pearls on my wedding day, and now that I know all of this background, I'm even more excited about it!

Love the Halloween kick you are on right now! Your Halloween cards are just my type of Halloween - a touch spooky, but not too frightening!

Love that pearl eye. Good for you getting a jump start on your Halloween. Should be doing that at our house, as DH loves that holiday. Definitely a 'spooky' spider too with his little pearl eye. I thought your liquid pearls turned out great. Loved the graduated sizes along his head. TFS
