Happy Tuesday All! I am sorry about my being absent yesterday. I try to keep my blog updated daily, atleast during the week, but yesterday was a very busy and hectic day and my husband and I received some bad news about something. After that my heart was not into stamping or blogging. I will try to do better today.

Yesterday, Priscilla experienced her first problem with blogging. Our Midnight Madness logo badge was having some issues. It was a photobucket and wordblog problem. As much as she love the blinkies, she was getting addicted to them LOL. She will be taking a break from blinkies for awhile due to technical problems. We would really appreciate it, if you would all replace your Midnight Madness blinkies with this badge and just link it back to the Midnight Madness blog

You have till Midnight EST (8-18-09) to get your MMSC14 in for last weeks sketch. One winner will be drawn for our weekly BONUS GIFT give away from “McMahon Five Designs” on Wednesday.

Midnight Madness Week #15 (MMSC15)

Here is my take on today's sketch. I used the Light of the World set from Sweet N Sassy Stamps. I watercolored it. Since most of the dt was going to make masculine images with this weeks sponsor, I wanted to add a little variety by using a somewhat masculine image but with a different theme. The paper is from SU To the Nines. While it is hard to see the dimension, the image is papertoled. The edges are distressed and hemp was added.

Stamps: Sweet N Sassy: Light of the World
Paper: Water Color, Bitter Chocolate, Sage Shadow, To the Nines
Tools: Rectangle and Label 4 Spellbinders, Sewing Machine, Aqua Brush, Stampin Up Markers
Embellishments: hemp, jumbo bronze brads, one rhinestone

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my take of the sketch. I hope this inspires to create!! For more inspiration, please visit my dt sisters:
