Glittery Cat Happy Halloween....CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #194, CAS-ology Challenge #219~Spooky, Creatalicious Challenge #101~Anything Goes, with optional twist of Halloween, Simply Create Too Challenge #120~Halloween


We were 'supposed' to be heading to see my mom today, but a winter storm - freezing rain, snow, wind - sees us staying here, at least for tonight. Driving treacherous roads, in the thank you!  Hopefully, conditions will improve enough so we can make the visit tomorrow. I *need* to see my mom and, of course, my sweet niece and nephew; my husband *needs* to cyclo-cross race (motivation for the trip...just offer him a race *grin*).

Anyway, the time here provided opportunity to get some house-cleaning done (half-hearted effort); some laundry done (still in the machine...) and some crafting!  I figured I wouldn't have a chance to play at CAS-ology Challenge #219~Spooky

this week, due to our trip I am!  With something 'spooky' (HA!)!

I paired this challenge with CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #194,

and the result is this:  a glittery cat with Happy Halloween wishes....

As much as the weather has me totally somewhat miffed, there are a couple perks to changing our plan (not the least of which is being safe):  homemade pizza night (finally...we haven't had any for TWO weeks!) and A Blue Jays baseball game to watch...

And with that, I'll bid you good-night!  Hope wherever you may be, you're safe and warm, enjoying a fabulous TGIF evening!
