The nights draw in

It's now getting dark just after 6.15pm and the clocks go back in a few weeks time. However it's not cold yet and the trees in my neighbourhood are looking awesome.
Some are just beginning to drop their leaves

 Mother Nature is getting ready to feed the wildlife though the winter

 If you look closely at the photo below Daisy's Mr Skinny Legs our friendly garden spider is still spinning his web. Busy catching flies for his supper.
I have been making some more Halloween tags. 
For the base of this one I stamped and embossed a Graphic 45 spider stamp. I picked this fun set up in a sale in the summer together with some papers. 
I also stamped some words from my Tim set in Wilted Violet Distress oxide
and then as we do covered it all up...LOL!
Here is my next Halloween tag...the Tim sentiment is stamped in blood red ink. The paper is graphic 45. The sentiment is my old Nicecrane one. I textured the pumpkins and gave red eyes to the witches cat.
with a close of this fun spooky ghost...


My tag was made for the following challenges;

Emerald Creek Dares freaky fun
Card mania 1/3 halloween colours
Pixies snippets playground #301/2
