Return of our swans

I was delighted on one of my recent walks down to Dotty's to see that our swans have returned to the ponds. There are 2 pairs this time and I manged to get some photos. It is always lovely to see these magnificent birds there.
Welcome home!

The sweet "dino" birds are back too
Everywhere looks very autumnal with the leaves beginning to fall
 so many colours by the waterfall
I am sharing another of my Halloween tags as the big day is nearly here.
I cut a black tag and used Oxides to make a ghostly background..which of course I then covered up..LOL..using my mixed media die cut.
and like the swans washing my witch has been washing her outfit and hanging it out to dry 😼
Yes I used the fun Cheery Lynn die cut again.
I highlighted the clothes with red glitter and also hung a skeleton charm from the line. I also embossed the edge of the tag with blood  red embossing powder.
I would like to enter my tag into the following challenges;

Allsorts 2/3 Halloween
A vintage journey crazy for autumn colour
Simon says stamp Wednesday anything goes
Emerald Creek Dares Freaky fun
Frilly and Funkie 1/3 trick or treat my trick is that hidden under my die and panel is that ghostly inky background.....booooo! 

Can I also remind you that my samples are back on the TV tonight at 7pm and tomorrow at 9am with Visible Image stamps. I have booked my seat on my sofa! Tuesday's show was awesome and the next 2 shows are looking fab.

Thanks for all your support.

Enjoy the weekend ahead and thanks so much for stopping by today.

Back soon,

Bye for now,
