Sketch Challenge Star Award MMM

The Midnight Madness Team has created a very special award called The “Midnight Madness Remarkables” Award !! We would like to acknowledge those entries that are just exceptionally Remarkable!! During our voting each week, due to the caliber of the cards entered in our challenges, we end up with so many ties and close votes, so this Fairy logo is for those recipients to display proudly. If you would each like to take our fairy logo for your side bar, she would love to come stay with you.

Thank you all for playing and please help me in congratulating our “Midnight Madness Remarkables” award winners…..

Our Sponsor for the month of September is....

Last week we posted our Month end sponsors, so be sure to take a look at all that is up grabs this month HERE. Continuing to support our challenges this month is DRS Designs!! They offer high quality, wood mounted rubber stamps as well as unmounted rubber depending on your preference. They have a 10 person design team and a blog that is updated daily by each member of the team. Every two weeks on a Monday, they host a blog challenge and have invited you to join them. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with their awesome images this week, so see below for the MMDT weekly sketch sample cards.


Our MMSC18 Weekly Sponsor is.....
This week's sponsor is one of our very own Midnight Madness players. Penny is generously offering up a wonderful set of her digis and a really cool stamp set from “Close to my Heart” Be sure to stop by her BLOG and check out all that she has going on, but here is a little bit about Penny…..
"I'm a mom of three wonderful children; Gillian (9), Matthew (5) and Hannah (1). I'm also a proud Army Wife to the love of my life Bryan!!! I love reading, writing, crocheting and anything papercraft-y!!! I was introduced to scrapbooking in November 2008 at a Close to my Heart gathering. It was alot of fun and I've been making cards and scrapbooks ever since. I've also liked drawing and doodling which started in high school art class, which is how the digital stamps came to be. I saw other digital stamps around the web and thought "how cool is that?" and decided I had to try it for myself. I'm a stay at home mom with alot of time on my hands and this is how I keep myself sane :) "

Look at all the digis you will get, PLUS you get to pick four FREE digis of your choice from her complete line. To view her line, click HERE .....PLUS, you get the awesome stamp set below!!
