Welcome to the Weekly Tuesday Midnight Madness Sketch Challenges!

We are in week 2 of the all NEW Midnight Madness Sketch Challenges...What an exciting first week we had. Your first week entries were so incredible!!! If you have not had a chance to check them out, please do so HERE. Mr. Linky is closed for MMSC1, but you are still welcome to leave a comment with your url so we can still see your work. The Midnight Madness DT was so impressed with the submissions from week 1, we all decided that each week we will be awarding a special Badge Award to one person for their outstanding sketch submission. It is called the "MIDNIGHT MADNESS MASTERPIECE" Gold Star Sketch Challenge Award (aka MMM). If you would like to be considered for this award, please make sure your card link is posted to Mr. Linky by Sunday of each week. This is our way to let you know how wonderfully talented you are and how much we appreciate you sharing your craft with us. Now, this was NO easy task! After we all viewed the wonderful cards entered for the week, we FINALLY came to a decision.

    Right now I cannot find Mr Linky and something will not let me add a link to my card in the SCS gallery! I will have to try this later. THere are so many beautiful examples here - mine is nothing like what I see but I did try to follow the sketch!

  35. JUst put my first card from this week sketch in Mr. linky

  36. Fun sketch, ladies!! Wonderful samples, too!

  37. Dorothy (etsdas on SCS)May 24, 2009 at 12:32 PM

    HELP!I think I was in too much of a hurry before leaving for church, and I some how have an incorrect link in #42. That is definitely not a current MMSC2 card. How can I delete it? Or would you be kind enough to delete it? I really want to try another one for this sketch. I am hoping that a tiny bit of the great creativity I see here will rub off on me...

  38. I just found this challenge, and had to participate. Thanks for a fun sketch, and it's been inspiring to see everybody's cards (well, not everybody's yet, I haven't had the time).

  39. This is by far one of the coolest sketch sites out there, Priscilla I am so glad we passed each other on the blognation station! BR-T

  40. Wow - I am glad for the time difference as I am just scraping in by our time....here is my third card for this week I am looking forward to next weeks....poised ready to go!!! Thanks again for the opportunity - I love to play....Catch you soon!

  41. I made another card using this MM Sketch. Here is my card: http://selmasstampingcorner.blogspot.com/


  42. All of these creations are just amazing! Fabulous work, ladies!

  43. Nice sketch! Thank for stopping by my blog and I will definitely play along. I am leaving for England on Friday to pick up my daughter who has been studying abroad so I may not start until the second Tuesday in June but we will see. I might be able to squeeze it in!!! Thanks again and I look forward to playing!

  44. Wow! What a great sketch!!! Here is my take on it:

  45. Here are my cards, http://historiasenconserva.blogspot.com/2009/05/reto-latino-y-midnight-madness.html

  46. Hi!!! I'm so glad I found your blog this sketch is great I already post my card and put the link in Mr. Linky.
