Happy Tuesday All!

As we speak the wind is whipping here and when I say whipping I mean whipping. It is about 80 mph winds, -2 degrees and boy does it feel like a train is right on top of us. My dear husband was going to go back to work today boy is it ever tempting for him to stay home another day. Neither of us have slept a wink all night. I sure hope some of our Christmas decorations from the outdoors are still there and not blown across the neighborhood (which they just may be). A great day to crawl back under the covers for sure.

Anywho....since it is Tuesday it is time for a new sketch from Midnight Madness!!


To all of you from all of us here at Midnight Madness we wish you and your family a Happy, Healthy, Prosperous New year!!!! Big Congrats to our Winners this week! All the creations were outstanding!!
Our Gold Star Winner for M MSC33 is:
#8 Christina C.

Our Remarkables are:

This Week's Sketch Challenge:

I found this sketch to be really fun!! I incorporated a sneak peak from Our Daily Bread designs to be released on January 1 called Confirmation. I used a flower soft display globe that Kelley sent each of the design team from the store. The image is watercolored. Ivory flower soft is added in the inside of the globe. The designer paper is from SU called To the Nines. The pearl Flourishes are from ZVA Creative.

Just a reminder that on Friday, there will be three new releases and a blog hop at Our Daily Bread Designs! Hope you can join the fun!

Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs: Confirmation to be released on Friday, January 1, 2010.
Paper: SU To the Nines, Sage Shadow, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Ivory Flowersoft, Flower Soft Display Globe, Ivory Satin Ribbon, ZVA Creative Pearl Flourishes, ZVA pearl strands
