NOW TO THE $$$CASH$$$!!!
We are down to the last week to make that piggy bank as fat as we can get it!! So, invite all your friends and lets bring home this last week with TONS OF CASH and LOTS OF FOLLOWERS. We are so close to DOUBLING THE CASH... LETS NOT LET IT GET AWAY!! If you win, you can use the money any way you like :) Spoil yourself, your family or pay is up to you :) The Midnight Madness Blog is hopefully a place for you to gather a little extra inspiration that will keep you coming back week after week. I think the prizes make it even that much more fun don’t you? We will mix it up each month so stick around cuz, we have some exciting sponsors in store for you starting next WEEK!!!

Made Money Details..this Month for every entry to Mr. Linky this month I will add .25 cents to the Midnight Madness “MAD MONEY” piggy bank. (only ONE entry per person per week please) This could add up really fast!!... Now follow me…..for example, if we average 50 Mr. Linky entries per week….that totals apox 200 entries for the month, which = $50 CASH!!! For the Big BONUS.…I will DOUBLE the cash amount if we DOUBLE our follower count by the end of the month. That would be a grand total Cash prize of $100 (to be paid through PayPal or Money Order in US funds) Now this total could be a lot higher depending on how many people play this month!! When we started this month, our followers count was at 160 follower, so if we reach a follower count of 320 or more by June 30th Midnight EST I will double the Mad Money amount. If the grand total at the end of the month reaches $200 dollars, I will draw two names…. If it reaches $300 I will draw 3 names and so on….and so on …and so on, up to a maximum of 5 winners for a $500 total pay out!! WOW!! (i.e. if the grand total is $375 then three names will be drawn and each person will receive a $125 cash) This challenge will run for the month of June. Starting with MMSC4 and lasting for a series of 4 sketch challenge weeks and ending with MMSC7 The grand prize award will be announced on July 1st . The drawing will be done via video and one of my kids will draw the name/names. The more people that play, the more money that goes in the MAD MONEY piggy bank!!! We must reach at least 320 followers for the Mad Money to be DOUBLED.

So gather up all your friends, announce it on your blogs and come play with us...we only need a few more followers for the MONEY TO BE DOUBLED!! :)

In addition to our MAD Money Cash prize and our weekly Midnight Madness Masterpiece Badge Award, we will draw one name from each weeks sketch entries to win a special surprise BONUS GIFT. It is Just a LITTLE something to keep the excitement going throughout the month. IN order to qualify for the CASH, you must display a linked Midnight madness "logo" badge on your blog, be a "follower" and have a "direct link" back to this site in your card post "comments". No worries if you do not have a blog..upload your card to a card gallery and in your card comments have a direct link back to the Midnight Madness Challenge blog and you will qualify as well.

Have you ever been faced with trying to fit a bulky thick style card in an envelope? The lumps and bumps really do not look that great, so I went to work coming up with my own design. I do not know how many times I would try and line up my envelope edges to find that they were slightly off, not enough room for the adhesive, it had gap openings, was lopsided, you name it, I have done it. If you have ever experienced the same kinds of problems, well I have found the answer. These Kits will help you make an envelope perfect every time. Kits pictured are a representation of the actual kits. Yours may differ, depending on which style kit is purchased and every Kit is custom made therefore they may have slight variations. The envelopes pictured here were all made using the "Thinking Inside the Box" blocks and are not recommended to use for mailing. We suggest you box them before shipping. The more"Advanced" Templates will be listed in the future. And if you would like to get on my reservation list, just add your name and email address to the comments on this post.
