Nearly the witching hour

Yes it is nearly that time of the year when ghost and spirits are supposed to walk the earth. It's only the last couple of years that I have made any kind of Halloween crafts and I must admit that I really enjoy it.
The clocks go back tomorrow night  so our very dark mornings will be lighter, for a while, but we will pay the price and the darkness will start drawing in early in the afternoon. I love the autumn and winter but I really dislike the lack of daylight.
We have not yet had a frost but there is heavy dew in the mornings which make my acers look so pretty.

Today I am sharing another of the 5 Halloween tags I made for my "babies"...age range from nearly 3 to 30+! For this one I used Tim Holtz stamps. I added sencilling to the background and also some seasonal die cuts which I had coloured with inks and added texture paste to.

I would like to enter my tag into the following challenges;

A Vintage Journey make it spooky
Anything but cute an autumn day my witch is certainly enjoying her autumn day flying over those pumpkins growing in the pumkin patch!
CraftY Calandar Halloween
Paper Creator anything spooky
Stamps and stencils elements of nature
Simon says stamp Wednesday anything goes
The Ribbon Girl any image
Deep Ocean Halloween

I am off to get inky with my great blogging friend Brenda of Bumblebees and Butterflies...we're making frames...I can't wait.
Have a lovely weekend and I hope you get some time for relaxation  as well as getting creative.

Back soon,

Bye for now,

  4. Love how you have caught the dew on your acers. Very pretty. Iv'e been out working in the garden to day closely followed by a large toad who sat with me for most of the time. I still have quite a lot of flowers and colour left in the garden. Intrigued to know which of your babies your witchy tag is for ! Hugs Mrs A.
