Happy Tuesday Morning! Today it is time for a little fun with the Midnight Madness team and a new sketch for the week. Remember you still have until tonight to finish your MMSC10 sketch and link it to Mr. Linky here to be entered for the MMSC10 bonus drawing, the Dustin Pike digital images!!!

We the team, had so much fun looking at all the wonderful projects and creations for last week sketch! Each week we recognize just one individuals creation for the previous week's sketch for their outstanding take on the sketch. This week's winner of the Midnight Madness Masterpiece award is my dt sister and friend, Grace Nywening! Congrats Grace!!!

We also award one dt member. The Mischief award this week goes to one of the dt sisters who is very talented and well rounded. Congrats Kimmie! You are so much fun to create with!

This week our MMSC11 bonus prize is sponsored by Michelle Perkett. Michelle is an artist who believes that the world can always use more happiness, innocence, color and inspiration. Each of her enchanted and inspirational fairies, mermaids, goddesses, and angel share these wonderful things. Soon Michelles' enchanting designs will be made available as rubber stamps and digital images. You can see her line at the etsy shop here. This week's prize is donated by her. Thanks Michelle for your generosity!

In efforts to make this post too long, I would like you to hop on over here if you would like more info about this month's bonus prizes and the design team call. There is lots of fun and prizes to be had by a few lucky winners!

I decided to use a fun and cutesy stamp from Penny Black called "Best Buddies". The pretty dp is from my stash that I just recently bought during my camping trip to Lancaster, PA. Good thing the stores that are available there are not here because I would always have empty pockets!! I added a touch of elegance by sewing a scalloped edge in gold metallic thread. Again I used my favorite corners from the Cuttlebug vintage die set, gold baubles and pearls! I colored the image using prisma color pencils and gamsol.
Card Recipe:
stamps: Penny Black- Best Buddies
paper: Deena's Penny Lane, Breaking Free (Jen Wilson)
Accessories: EK Success Eyelet punch, gold baubles, pearls, sewing machine, Mega curved rectangles, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, gold metallic thread
Hope you enjoyed today's post and that this sketch and project inspire you to join the fun this week. If you do, please leave a direct link to Mr. Linky here. If you upload to SC please use the keyword MMSC11.
For more inspiration, please visit my very talented and eclectic dt sisters: Carolyn, Charlotte, Denise, Jane, Jeni, Jessica, Kimmie, Michelle, Phyllis, Priscilla, Shawne, Sonya, and Sue!
