Angel set Chris2

Happy Tuesday!! Today I have so much to share with you!

Today is the day for a new Midnight Madness sketch and I have a project that I would like to share with you that I created with an Our Daily Bread Christmas set as well!!
Midnight Madness Week #20 (MMSC20)

Hope you're happy and healthy today and thank you so much for stopping in for a visit today. I want to begin my post by bidding my dt sister and friend, Jessica a goodbye from the Midnight Madness Team. After much deliberation and thought she has decided to leave the team. Although we are saddened with her departure, Jessica has been pursuing her talent with her graphic arts and has been working on designing her own line of rubber stamps. With her upcoming wedding and being a young mother with many demands, she has only so much time in her day. We wish her many successes as she explores other avenues of her creativity. Of course goodbye from the team does not mean goodbye. We will still have the opportunity to visit her blog and see all the amazing stamps she is creating. Congrats on you upcoming wedding Jess and with your new line of stamps!!

You have till Midnight EST 9-22-09 to get your MMSC19 entries in. Our weekly winner will be drawn on Wednesday, so be sure to check back for that. If you miss the deadline, you are still welcome to link up to Mr Linky, but any entries after the "LAST CALL" will not be in the drawing.
Each week we are awarding a special Badge Award to one person for their outstanding sketch submission. If you would like to be considered for this award, please make sure your card link is posted to Mr. Linky by Sunday of each week. This is our way of let you know how wonderfully talented you are and how much we appreciate you sharing your craft with us. This week we are proud to say the“MIDNIGHT MADNESS MASTERPIECE” Gold Star Award goes to.....

Congrats Rosette! Your creation was incredible!

The Midnight Madness Team has created a very special award called The “Midnight Madness Remarkables” Award !! We would like to acknowledge those entries that are just exceptionally Remarkable!! During our voting each week, due to the caliber of the cards entered in our challenges, we end up with so many ties and close votes, so this Fairy logo is for those recipients to display proudly. If you would each like to take our fairy logo for your side bar, she would love to come stay with you.

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

Continuing to their Sponsorship this month is....

Drawings for month end are coming up, just take a look at what is up grabs this month HERE. This is the last week of our our wonderful monthly sponsor DRS Designs . We hope to have them sponsor us again real soon :) You can find them at and The Midnight Madness team has had a lot of fun crafting with their wonderful stamps. Just take a look at our sketch example cards this week. Thanks DRS Designs.

We are so lucky to have
"Michelle's Scrapbooking"
as our Weekly Bonus Sponsor

Michelle is offering our MMSC20 Bonus winner the two stamps shown below from the Pixie Cottage line and a 10.00 off coupon code for her store. Thank you Michelle for your wonderful prize this week.


Since DRS Designs was our sponsor this month and generously sent several free stamps to use for this month's post, most of the designs done by the dt are using their designs.

For my card, I got a little carried away with their adorable Scarecrow with Fence image. I just thought it would be neat to use some real material for the scarecrow and add raffia to my image. The paper is from the Recollections Autumn Pack available at Michaels. The leaves that are punched out on the sides use the new Martha Stewart Leaf punch border. The bigger leaves are from Prima and they have been in my stash forever!!!!!

For more inspiration for the MMSC20 sketch, please visit my dt sisters.

And now on to my project using the Angel set from Our Daily Bread Designs. Last week I shared the card with you and told you that I had a project to coordinate which would be posted on the Our Daily Bread Blog. Well...I thought I would share it here as well.

Since so many people have begun their Christmas cards and projects, I thought it would be nice for me to share a card and project using one of my favorite stamp sets from Our Daily Bread Designs Christmas line: Angel. The card I recently made for the Stampin Sisters in Christ Sketch Challenge. After creating the card, I thought it would be nice to make a coordinating project to go with it for a gift during the Christmas holidays. I have always loved to make projects but never had the opportunity to make a project using a paint can . I just love tins and have seen so many awesome projects using these cans. At Christmas time there are just so many small gifts that you give out to teachers, Sunday School teachers, friends, neighbors, and etc. These little painting cans are perfect for putting in little go odies like cookies or candy, etc.

I covered the can with SU Ski Slope paper and then embellished it with ric rac, ribbon, punched snowflakes and my angel image which I colored with watercolors and prisma color pencils and gamsol. The wings are glittered with stickles. The ribbons tied on the handle are a bunch or ribbon scraps that I have saved.
