Happy Tuesday!!! Today is another Midnight Madness Challenge!!! I hope everyone is doing well!! My computer is still at the computer doctor and is on its way to being repaired I hope!! This is a prescheduled post. I apologize for any info. that I am missing for today's Midnight Madness Post. You may really want to check out the Midnight Madness blog for the winners and bonus prizes etc. this week.

Our Weekly Bonus Sponsor for MMSC29 is...

Your Next Stamp is the place to be if you’re looking for super cute fun and whimsical rubber stamps!

They just had a new release and we are so lucky, because Karen is giveaway Christmas stamps to our lucky MMSC29 Bonus Winner this week. Woo Hoo, just in time for Christmas :) Thank you Karen.

Here is this week's sketch:

Here is my take on the sketch:

I used the stamps Ansley's Surprise from Wags n Whiskers for this weeks card. I paper pieced the gifts and ribbon and colored the rest with Prisma color pencils and gamsol. The background of the image panel is embossed with the Cuttlebug Snowflake folder. The paper is from My Mind's Eye Winter Wonderland pack. The Snowflakes are stickers I had in my stash.

I hope this card inspires you to create with this sketch. For more inspiration, please visit my dt sisters:

Thanks for visiting today!! I hope you get a chance to play with this week's sketch!! If so, please leave a direct link to the MM blog here. We would love to see what you create!! If you upload to SC or PCP, please use the keyword MMSC27 so we can see all these creations in one place.

As always thanks for your wonderful comments!!!! You make my day. Tomorrow I leave for Virginia to visit my sister and brother in law for the Thanksgiving holiday. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday. I do have another post schedule for tomorrow for Flutter By Wednesday and the Inky Impressions challenge. I look forward to borrowing my sister in laws computer to go blog surfing!!! I so miss you all and all the inspiration.
