Spell on You

Hello Readers,

For today I am writing on behalf of (PIN)spirational to let y'all know we have a new challenge for the next two weeks. Before I show you the inspiration pin for this challenge I want to share my card for today, enjoy.

I thought there is nothing more spellbinding then being split in half!!
I love this vintage tree! Its old crooked branches are just perfect for Halloween.
The trunk of the tree acts as a connector for the two halves of our witch. 
Our sponsor for this challenge:

The inspiration pin is full of autumn
oranges, browns, and yellows which is what inspired me to
use these rich warm colors.
For the sentiment I decided to do a little figure ground reversal on the word
'spell'. If I left it maroon you wouldn't be able to see it clearly
and the point of the card would be lost.
Challenges Entered:
Just Us Girls: Photo Week #366
Addicted to Stamps and More: Week 216- Anything Goes
Craft Stamper- Take it, Make it Challenge: Autumn Creations
  Take It, Make It Challenge
As I was making this card it reminded me of witches and their brooms. That thought brought me to a children's book titled 'The Widow's Broom' by Chris Van Allsburg. If you haven't picked up this delightful read then I suggest you do. A fabulous story about an old broom that has lost its magic. The witch deserts her broom in a veggie patch and there, an old widow finds it. This book is full of adventure, suspense, and lots of humor. It is a fun read for all ages, and fun for the kiddos to hear. And his illustrations are absolutely amazing. Go pick it up at your local library for Halloween. It is sure to delight.

Well that should do it for me. I hope you have a great day and thank you so much for stopping by my little byte of the internet. I do hope you will join us at PINspirational. It should be fun! Until then, take care, and happy crafting.

All the best,
