Happy Tuesday everyone!! I hope everybody had a great beginning to their week!!
Today it is time for a new Midnight Madness Sketch!! The dt has a lot of yummy surprises to share with you this week!!

Before I go onto the sketch, however, I want to congratulate Kathy Jones for winning the 2 stamps hidden at my blog during the Wags n Whiskers Blog Hop!!

The sponsors at Midnight Madne
ss are:

Fran from the Frantic Stamper Inc. is the sponsor of our Monthly Bonus Prize Winner. Fran is offering a MEGA package worth $250 to one of you lucky players this month! Wow! Thank you so much Fran!




We are so happy to announce that this week we have the wonderful Simon Says Stamp sponsoring us for our weekly Bonus prize for MMSC32. One lucky winner will win...



Today's sketch is a sketch with a twist. The MMSC chose a baking theme this week. Each dt will be sharing some of their favorite recipes with their creations.


I made this gift set for my daughter's Sunday School Teacher. The card has a pocket for the recipe. I left the paint can mostly clear so you can see my deformed gingerbread men. Yes I said deformed. After I was done, I realized this wasn't a running gingerbread man but rather the leg was bent. LOL! Guess this is a good lesson for teaching that you can't judge by outside appearances. LOL!

Card Recipe:
stamps: Papertrey Ink-Button Bits
Paper: Western Sky (retired SU), Soft Suede DP
Accessories: Baja Breeze ribbon, Jumbo brads, silver baubles, sewing machine, MS Border punch

Can Recipe:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs- Peace and Joy, Paper Trey Ink-Button Bits
Paper: bitter chocolate, baja breeze
accessories: medium paint can, Create a flake 1 Spellbinders die, circle spellbinders

I would have looked at that sketch and given up before I even started. So many details. But you really pulled it off. Not only is your card cute, but the colors are so warm and homey - perfect for your gingerbread theme. And you took it to the next level with the coordinating gift can and recipe card. And even real gingerbread cookies. Excellent work!
