Today I thought I would share with you a birthday card I have put together using the new Pion Design Halloween collection - The Witching Hour. One of the things I love about Pion papers, is that they can be used year round for any occasion and not just the holiday they were designed for!
Pion Products: THE WITCHING HOUR

The pretty white frame is from Spellbinders, a gift from my lovely hubby! The Spellbinders butterfly cascade, the Tim Holtz sentiment die cut and the Wild Orchid Flowers are all from The Funkie Junkie. The Chloe Stem is Memory Box, the leaves are Cheery Lynn, everything else is from my stash.
I'm so excited to tell you the news that Pion Design is getting ready to release their next collection "Where the Roses Grow", a collection inspired by an untamed flourishing rose garden! This may be one of my favourites to date! I am tickled pink and green and can't wait to create with these gorgeous papers!!
I'm steering away from landscape photography as I have found I much more enjoy photographing things up close, but I thought I would share this image I captured a few weeks ago in The Shire as the sun came up and started peeking through the trees.
"Found a peee-nut, found a peeeanut, found a peeeanut laaast night!! Laaast night I found a peeeanut, found a peeeanut laaast night! - Sing it with me!"
"Pwetty Pwetty pwease, may I have a peanut? I'm so tiny and cute and berry berry hungwy"
I always stop to give my sweet Miss Chrissy a treat on the trail to The Shire.
Don't forget to say Hello to Bon Jovi if you visit The Shire, he is always hiding in there somewhere!
This is Henry, a white rabbit that lives out in The Shire. Locals say they think he is a domestic rabbit was dumped here as a baby, and incredibly has managed to survive and thrive for several years now. Animals are remarkable, don't you think!!
My bird photos for today are a sunbathing Sparrow and a sweet female Mallard at the lake.
And at the home front, my dear MR SCRUFF is having a wee treat.
My Macro shot of the day is some rainy day leaves. We are finally getting all the rain that we should have had in the spring. Too late to save the leaves from dying before they got a chance to turn their brilliant autumn hues, I'll still take it though! lol
That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. If you have any questions or interesting tidbits about today's wildlife, please let me know.
