Meet the Midnight Madness Design Team

We thought it would be fun to feature in this section of our blog hop something to help you get to know the design team members and for us to get to know you. We have all chosen some questions with answers we wanted to share with you, our valued challenge players and new visitors, about ourselves. You are welcomed to leave a comment here at my blog and tell us something about you. So here are some interesting things about me!

I absolutely cannot craft without my cutter bee scissors. I love the sharp points on these great little scissors and as I do a lot of layering on my images, these scissors are invaluable to me. If my house was on fire, I would definitely rescue my tool carrier, I have so many wonderful tools that are within arms reach, and all organized in my carrier complete with a Lazy Susan. As I work full time outside the home, my favorite time to create my cards and paper piecings is after 9:00 and when everyone else has gone to bed. I am often up until 12:00 midnight or even 1 a.m.! I love my diet mountain dew and often have it with me in my craft studio for those late nights! When I go to yard or garage sales, I love to find rubber stamps, storage containers, and craft papers to add to my collection! Lastly, my hero would be President Ronald Reagan. Although he was one of the best Presidents of all time, the reason that he is my "hero" is because of the way he treated his wife Nancy throughout their marriage. This is a man who had a love affair with his wife, his whole life!


Cards from the Crypt




For something a little fun to honor our Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge Players we thought we would go back into the Crypt of archived challenges and pick some of our favorites to feature here. Our winners will need to do the blog hop and collect a word from each of the blogs to collect the winning phrase and place their name in Mr. Linky at Priscilla's Midnight Madness Blog! We will email you when we verify that you have entered your name in Mr. Linky, you will need to email back the phrase in order to qualify for your prize. Even if your card has been chosen from the Crypt you are still eligible for the Grand Prize and Random Drawings.

My pick from the Crypt of Archived Challenges is from challenge #16, card #52. This beauty was made by CABIO! She has faithfully made cards for our Midnight Madness Challenges! I just loved her coloring of her image and her handmade flower! Our winners will need to do the blog hop and collect a word from each of the blogs to collect the winning phrase and place their name in Mr. Linky at Priscilla's Midnight Madness Blog! We will email you when we have verified that you have entered you name in Mr. Linky, you will need to email back the phrase in order to qualify for your prize. Even if you card has been chosen from the crypt, you are still eligible for the Grand Prize and Random Drawings .





My Project

For a little treat I have featured one of my favorite projects. It is simple and cute little project, but it can be used as a table favor or just as a way to give something special, for a thank you or just a thinking of you gift. Just change out a few stamps and you have a wonderful gift for any season. A tutorial for this will be available soon!





My Word for the Secret Phrase

and your next word can be found at Chris-Twinkles Glow with Stamps blog. thank you for playing in our weekly challenges and for all you support each week. We love showing off our creations to you and visiting your blogs each week to see what you have created. We hope you are enjoying this special Blog Hop and that you are finding something new along the way. Thanks for joining us today!

  20. Great cards and treat holder! I love the tiny detailed ears of corn inside! I started off hungry for pumpkin pie, then had a hankering for zuchinni bread and now strangely I'm yearning for some Hazlenut chocolate from Ghiradelli? I'm glad I brought some snacks along on this hop :)
