Just a quick update…My daughter is recovering nicely and I am just trying to keep her hydrated for the most part. She has been such a trooper during this whole thing. Thank you again for all your well wishes and personal emails. I was very touched by all the love, so thank you from the bottom of my heart. I would also like to thank the Midnight Madness Design Team for holding down the fort these last few days. I did not have a chance to comment on the MMSC15 cards, but will be playing catch up as soon as I can. I would like to take this time to also WELCOME all our new players. We had so many new people joining us this last week and are very thrilled about it. We hope you will keep coming back to play with us week after week. We are very close to having 300 different players in our challenges and the team is planning a big celebration. The details will be revealed in the coming future. I am excited to say, that we have a new Guest Designer for Sept and are now on the search for an October Guest Designer, so keep those projects coming and just let us know you are interested in the October spot. I will be posting who it is very soon. Melissa Bove has done a great job being our August Guest Designing Diva and will be sharing a tutorial this week with everyone, so keep in eye out for that coming on Wednesday. This is your last week to get in the drawing for Jeni’s Challenge Candy and the Simon Says Stamp $50 voucher. So keep those entries coming :) You have till Midnight EST 8-29-09 to get your MMSC15 entries in for last weeks sketch. One winner will be drawn for our weekly BONUS GIFT give away from SUNSHINE’S STAMPS Wednesday, so check back for that.

Sketch Challenge Star Award MMM

We are just trilled with all our players each week and The Midnight Madness Team is having a ball visiting and commenting on so many of your entries. The Team would like to acknowledge five of our players for sticking with us since the beginning. The first 3 names have played with our sketches from the very first one we put out. The last two names only missed the very first sketch. I guess it took them a week to find us LOL . We would like to give these five ladies this “Royal Loyal Award” for being such troopers. We have enjoyed your work these last 15 weeks!! Thank you and thank you to all our players from the bottom of our hearts for making this journey such a fun one.
