Happy Tuesday Everyone!! I hope everyone is enjoying their week and had a good beginning so far! By the time you view this post, I will be away for the week with my daughters to visit my parents and getting together with my sister who I don't often see. I have been looking forward to the time we will be spending together. I have scheduled posts through out the week for all the different dt's and challenges, etc. I won't have access to a computer so I sure will be missing all your inspiration!! I will for sure catch up with you when I return!

Well anywho, since today is Tuesday, it is time for the Midnight Madness Sketch! This is just one of the sketches. For the CAS sketch, winners, and sponsor details, please visit the MMSC blog.

Here is my take on the sketch!!

This past weekend, Wags n Whiskers had a new release of several sweet images. The card I created today uses one of them illustrated by Cris de Lara. She has such a fun and whimsical style to her creations. This image is called Let's do Lunch. The papers are from Basic Grey Nook and Pantry. The buttons are from my stash including the sugar pot which was in my Christmas buttons. The image is water colored with distress inks.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Wags n Whiskers: Let's Do Lunch
Paper: BG Nook and Pantry, old olive, bitter chocolate
Accessories: spellbinders, buttons, ribbon, sewing machine, distress inks

Midnight Madness sketch 41~
