Happy Tuesday!!! Well today is a new sketch for Midnight Madness!! We had some glitches this a.m. since Priscilla has been very sick and was unable to post this week's challenge. Please bear with us today as we add the necessary info throughout the day. My thoughts and prayers are with Priscilla today!

Anywho...Here is the info. that I have to share in regards to this week's challenge:

First we need to congratulate our Midnight Madness Masterpiece Award winner for this week....and that is #58 Craftypagan....congratulations Rowena!
Our Midnight Madness Remarkables Award goes to
#3 Karen Wallace
#9 Karen Lynn
#40 Pam124
Congratulations ladies....and thank you to all our players that join us each week.
Our sponsors for this week are Digi Stamp Characters by Heather Ellis who provided the DT with a few adorable digi images. Many of the dt used them for their sketches this week!
Our monthly sponsor is Michelle's Scrapbooking and More

Here is the sketch...

Here is my take on the sketch this week!!

I used the Cowgirl Lili image from Inky Impressions. Isn't she just darling!!! I water colored her with distress inks. The dp is retired Western Sky paper from SU. I have never made an easel card before so I thought it would be fun to make one for this week's sketch.

I hope this card and sketch inspires you to create! If you do use this sketch for your creation, please leave a direct link to Mr. Linky Here. If you upload your creation to SC, please use the keyword MMSC26. We look forward to seeing your creations!! For more inspiration, please visit my dt sisters:
