Something Wicked This Way Comes...

I thought by now I would be tired of Halloween crafts, but I'm not! I continue to have a lot of fun with this theme and I am totally still in love with the Cricut October 31 cartridge. Over at Paper Patch Crafts, Anne is having a contest that follows this sketch theme for a card. You have until midnight (woooooo) tomorrow, the 11th, to get your submission in.
Here is the Sketch

And here is what I created:
Here are some close-ups of the poem as well.  My hubby didn't write this one but some of you may remember a few years back that Lexus had an ad campaign that took the lines from Shakespeare's "by the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes" as quoted by one of the witches in Macbeth.  Their campaign was a series of commercials with eeries scenes and these stanzas:

There also was a book with the same title "Something Wicked This Way Comes" written by Ray Bradbury, which was also made into a movie.  You could rent that now for your Halloween viewing.  But that is not where it ends..."Something wicked this way comes" is a lyric sung in "Double Trouble," a song written by John Williams (with lyrics from Macbeth) for Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban. You can see a clip of that song here.  It was also used as a tagline to the film on posters and other promotional material.

And there you have it....my contribution to creepy bits of literature and pop culture. 
 Enjoy....if you dare...
