Happy Tuesday Everyone!! I hope you all had a chance to craft yesterday and are well. There seems to be so much illness going around already!! This time of year is so tough to get rid of colds etc. They just seem to linger. I am doing so much better. My biggest problem is recovering from all the pulled muscles I got from excess coughing. Boy is it ever painful!!

Well today is Midnight Madness!!! We have a fun new sketch again this week!!

This is the last week to get in on the drawings for the Oct Months Giveaways . Today is the last day to enter MMSC24 for a chance at last weeks bonus prize. You have till Midnight EST 10-27-09 to get your MMSC24 entries in to qualify.

This week we would like to congratulate:
#33. Cabio


Thank you all for playing and please help me in congratulating our “Midnight Madness Remarkables” award winners…..


Since there is so much information about our sponsors and I realize not all my readers are interested, I created a separate post about the MM prizes and sponsors. Please scroll down to the next post.

Since many of our design teams cards will be using Shawne's images, I would like to share that Shawne is this week's sponsor. 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.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ .

Here is Week #25 (MMSC25)

Here is my take on this week's sketch using Shawne's Patchpal Lamb!! Isn't he just the sweetest? I colored him with prisma color pencils and gamsol. The dp I used is from BY Eskimo Kisses.
Card Recipe:

Stamps: CDS Patchpal Lamb

Paper: Cranberry Crisp, Pink Pirouette, Bitter Chololate Bazzill, BG Eskimo Kisses

Accessories: Hodgepodge Hardware, Pink grosgrain, Divine Swirls and Flowers Embossing

Folders from Cuttlebug, Spellbinder Circles

I hope this creation inspires you to create and maybe join us this week with this sketch. If so, please leave a direct link here. Should you upload your creation to SC, please use the keyword MMSC25. For more inspiration using this sketch. Please visit my dt sisters. Many have used Shawne's images!
