2. Anything goes!!…Stamped, Digital, Collage, Vintage Prints, Hand drawn, Mixed Multi Media, scrap it, 3-D it, you name it!! I am sure it will be wonderful, I know you will be proud of your work and eager to link it up here. Any form of style/brand is accepted, as we do not endorse any one product line.

3. Make it Your Own and feel free to take artistic liberties with the sketch provided, as long as you can still tell it was based upon the sketch. ie: rotate the sketch, add embellishments, change the shape of an individual piece, create a square card from a rectangle sketch, etc.

5. To be entered in the Midnight Madness grand prize drawing, a minimum of one (1) card/project submission link is required. You could have a total of 4 entries for the monthly prize, but only one per week per sketch challenge please. (some months my have 5 weeks) Some weeks we will offer two sketches. One Fancy and one Clean and Simple (CAS)  During those weeks you can enter one of each if you would like.

6. You will have ONE week for each sketch. Upload your project to your blog, Splitcoast Stampers (SCS) or some type of card gallery so we will be able to find your entry, please enter your “Direct” post link to Mr. Linky, and be sure to post a comment on the MM blog the week you enter. If it is not a direct link then we will not be able to find it and may have to delete it. If you have played along and it is after the weekly deadline, please feel free to still post up to Mr. Linky. Only names posted during that challenges' week by the deadline will be put in the random drawing. You have 7 days for each entry to be submitted. Each week will run Tuesday to Monday night and should be submitted by 5pm PST. Enter one week, or all four weeks each month! (a "direct" link normally starts with http and ends with html)

You are more than welcome to add your project to Mr. Linky after the deadline, but please leave us a comment, so we can be notified and come take a look :)

12. Oh yea, have FUN, have FUN, have FUN!!
Please contact me if you have any questions, comments or concerns.
Thank you for playing :)

Note : Although we make every effort to visit our participants blogs and card hosting communities, sometimes we are unable to leave comments due to circumstances beyond our control. Most of the team belongs to all the major sites. It is not that we don't like your card or want to comment, it is just impossible for our Design Team to belong to every Cardmaking Community and take the time required to do so. If you do not receive comments from our Design Team, it is because of this fact and not because we overlooked your entry!
Each week we are 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 Midnight Monday EST of each week. This is our way of let you know how wonderfully talented you are and how much we appreciate you

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.
 We have a running spread sheet of every player that has played the Midnight Madness Sketch challenge to date. (Thank you Phyllis) We will keep updating the list when ever a new player joins. From time to time through out the year, we may do some cash prize giveaways.
The Midnight Madness Design Team is on a SEARCH!!! We are looking for monthly “Guest Designer Diva”
Is it YOU? If you are chosen as our monthly"Midnight Madness Guest Designing Diva" here is what will happen…..

    In fact, you made it in italics and bold font, after the switch into English is very fancy, and appeared to be struggling a bit.
    Although I do not totally understand the MMSC15-18 note.
    But I will follow every WEEK ^ ^

  4. Are we allowed to combine Midnight Madness with other card challenges? Rules don't say anything about that.
