Midnight Madness Week #8 (MMSC8)

So sorry for the delay with the Winner Video..I am having major video download technical problems. I have tried to download the video 3 times..that is what I did for most of yesterday…..I really wanted you to see the video too. It is so cute….
Stay tuned for the Winners…I will post the winners names today.

Sit back and stay awhile..we have lots to share with you!!! First things first, if you have played with us make SURE you are "following". I will check when we pull the names tomorrow to make sure before posting the winners. You have till Midnight EST 6-30-09 to follow, get your MMSC7 entries in for last weeks sketch and the last chance at our June monthly CASH GRAND PRIZE. So you still have time to fill up that piggy bank even more and double the money with more followers. We have had over 200 entries this month and remember it was .25 cents per entry, plus if we reached our Follower goal of 320 I would DOUBLE the cash... we are just a few short when it comes to the follower goal, so I encourage you to make a last ditch effort to spread the word. We can do it!!! :) One cash winner and one bonus winner will be drawn tomorrow (Wednesday 7-1), so be sure to check back for that update. (as always, if you miss the deadline, you are still welcome to leave a comment with your url so we can still check out your work)

I used the Phantom Fuchsia “Moon Shadow Ink” on my card this week. I am hooked!!! The beautiful brilliant iridescent ink colored my background half circle paper, edges and my flower on this weeks sketch sample card. Take a close look at how pretty the shimmer is by clicking to enlarge. I can not wait to get to work with some of these other products to see what they can really do :) Very exciting!! I invite you all to check out their wonderful line of products and be sure to tell them the “Midnight Madness” sent you. They even have fabulous videos Here! I promise you will not be disappointed in their fantastic Stains, Powders, Glitz Spritz, Inks and two-toned Embossing Powders, just to name a few.

Starting July 1st our Midnight Madness Mad Money Piggy Bank is going to take up residents on our side bar!!!… It will be filled up again with random amounts of CASH!! We have a running spread sheet of every player that has played the Midnight Madness Sketch challenge to date. (Thank you Phyllis) We will keep updating the list when ever a new player joins. We are going to have random drawings and if the person whose name we pulled has played our sketch challenge the prior week, they will win the Mad Money Cash from the Piggy Bank. The amounts will be random as well and could range anywhere from $5 up to $100.. so all you have to do is play and check back from time to time. The random Mad Money Name will pop up on the side bar and that person will have 24 hours to post a comment under the current challenge to claim their CASH prize money!!! (to be paid via PayPal) We will even do random drawings off our FOLLOWERS list as well. (If you would like to be on our “Mad Money” spreadsheet, it would be very helpful if when you add your name to Mr. Linky that you some how add an initial or make your name distinguished..(ie Lisa A. or Lisa B.) this will be very helpful with the more frequently used names so we can differentiate the players.)

  28. I hope some one can help.
