Sleepy in Mass...

Good morning I arrived safe & sound at my BFF's yesterday morning - and yes she did meet me with a latte and a big hug! I managed to sleep for about an hour on the flight, and a little dozing but that was it, so I was a sleepy girl yesterday! After a shower & lunch we hit Karen's stamp room & I managed to make 2 cards while entertaining Karen with the lack of brain power (it really was bad) BUT in 2 cards I was able to play along with Taylored Expressions Birthday Bash and did 8 of the challenges (4 per card) YEAH SLEEPY!!
Here's the first card I made using the sweet new set from Taylored Expressions called Trick or Treat II; I really like this set because you don't have to just use the images for Halloween, this will be my nephews birthday card it's in October so I am ahead of schedule!

I used one of the sketch challenges from the birthday bash, the one done by my BFF! (TEBBKM)
The image is stamped with mementos ink onto Taylor's choice snow white paper and coloured with copics. I paper pieced (TEBBDB) his mask and cape. The colours are from Prism and are Intense Teal, Rose Medium, and Sunflower Medium (TEBBJC) On the Intense Teal I used my new Spellbinders Impressabilities circles. I added buttons along the strip (TEBBSK) and some Xmas Red stickles to his "S" and on top of his head.

I will post the other card later, we are off to shop a little this afternoon - it's amazing how rejuvenated you can feel when you actually get some sleep! I did last until 10:30 last night, which is an early be time for me but under the circumstances was very impressive!

Have a great day
