Welcome to the Weekly Tuesday Midnight Madness Sketch Challenges!
Wow!! What talent we have playing our Midnight Madness!!! Your weeks entries were incredible yet again!!! If you have not had a chance to check them out, please do so HERE. Last weeks Mr. Linky is CLOSED for MMSC2, but if you miss the deadline, you are still welcome to leave a comment with your url so we can still check out your work. Just a special note before we get started...Our Design Team has come up with a "Mission Statement" and we would love to share it with you. It is also posted on our side bar, so if you have a minute to check it out, please do. It really states what we are all about here and we are just thrilled that you have stopped to visit us and hopefully join us on our creative journey. The Midnight Madness DT had a really great time visiting all the entries this last week and needless to say, we, once again, had a difficult time picking just one person for the “MIDNIGHT MADNESS MASTERPIECE” Gold Star Award (aka MMM). Each week we will be awarding a special Badge Award to one person for their outstanding sketch submission. 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 of let you know how wonderfully talented you are and how much we appreciate you sharing your craft with us. After all the DT votes were in, we had a winner, but keep in mind it was almost a 4 way tie. That is how close it was. The person who got the most votes was….
Please take a moment to check out her Entry
Selma please display this Award Proudly it is well deserved.

Sketch Challenge Star Award MMM

This next award goes to one of our very own Team members. From time to time I will be honoring a MMDT member for a special quality they have. This week I would like to acknowledge this person for her outstanding social qualities. She is a wonderful person, a mother, grandmother, and an excellent card maker just to name a few. She has been making cards for over 15 years and has a passion for using flowers on her cards. She is very well known over at SCS and her complete Gallery is just a Bouquet of Beauty.

This very special "SEASONED SOCIALITE" Award goes to:

Please stop by her Gallery and show her some love!

    I think I managed to get my third card posted justunder the wire. I have not mastered uploading photos, and using the scanner is also a challenge. I think I finally got a decent image.
    There are SO many gorgeous cards. Mine to not begin to compare, but I still really like doing the sketches! Thank you for the opportunity.

  43. I'm so glad everyone is having a great time either just looking or making cards. We always love company :)

  44. What a fun challenge!! I went down to the wire to get the card in, but I guess that's why you call it Midnight Madness :). I am a follower, the MMSC badges is in my sidebar, and just in case Mr. Linky starts pulling some of his famous tricks, here is a link to my card: Thanks so much!!

  45. This is my first time playing - I checked out some of the cards posted via Mr Linky and the talent here is AMAZING!! :)
