Hello and so glad you could join us for another weekly Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. We would like to take this opportunity to thank those of you who play our sketch challenges and have been confronted with just that, “A Challenge” We commend all of you who have stepped out of your comfort zone and pushed through what sometimes seem to be a stretch for your imagination. The results you are coming up with are just incredible. We appreciate the feedback in regards to our sketches and strive each week to make them interesting and of course a “challenge” for you. The coming weeks will be no exception ;) Our DT has already scheduled our next Blog Hop which will be coming to you all on Dec 8th. Our Holiday Blog Hop will be a week long Hop filled with surprises and of course prizes. If you would like to help spread the word about our next hop by posting this logo on your side bar we would appreciate it. As you know, here at the Midnight Madness Blog, anything can happen. We have a “Midnight Madness Prize Patrol” that will be on the look out for our “Special Midnight Madness Holiday Blog Hop Logo” If one of our team members spots this special logo, your name will go into a special drawing. (playing our challenges is NOT required for these prizes) We will be looking for our MM Holiday Logo from NOW until the Holiday Blog Hop starts.
We will be awarding an appreciation gift every week to one lucky person until our Holiday Blog Hop is launched, so the search starts NOW!!…good luck!!!

OUR MMSC25 WEEKLY BONUS SPONSOR IS.....
Shawnefrom our very own DT, has her own stamp line and has very generously offered up a $25 Gift Voucher to the store that features her line. Here is a little bit about Shawne in her own words…..
" I wish there were something exceptional for me to say but I'm afraid I'm really extraordinarily ordinary. I wish I could claim to have a degree in the arts or graphic design but I don't. I've just always loved to draw and paint. I think I'm like most of you out there. A crafter at heart. I used to call myself a SAHM but the term seemed like an unfair assessment of my life, since most of us work around the clock and so I began calling myself a WAHM. So I am a wife and WAHM of four beautiful daughters, I love my life but wanted something of my own. Cardmaking became a creative outlet for me and a way to get back in touch with myself. A few years later fate led me to Clear Dollar Stamps and I became an Illustrator for them. It was a dream come true. The kind of job I pretended to have as a child! I'm inspired by my surrounding and things that I love which I guess is pretty typical of an artist. I happen to be surrounded by little girl's so most of my work is child like and girly. Growing up some of my favorite times were spent at the beach or on my family's farm. I get a lot of inspiration for my drawings from there too! "
Today, many of our MMSC25 Design Team cards were made with *Shawne’s images. To see all of the wonderful designer projects go to The Home of the Midnight Madness Sketches!You can check out Shawne's complete line HERE. Our MMSC25 Weekly Bonus Winner will win $25 Gift Voucher redeemable at Clear Dollar Stamps donated by Shawne...Thank you Shawne.
For the sketch challenge, I altered a journal. I decided to also make a coordinating card for this fun journal. This beautiful pink glittery paper is from the Disney line and thought that it was perfect for Shawne's images of Princess Rosebud and her rose carriage!
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave your thoughts about my projects!
