Sketch Challenge Star Award MMM

This week the MMDT has nominated a very special person for the “Midnight Madness Sweetheart” Award. She was nominated for many reasons, but here are just a few. She is one of the Sweetest, Softest, and Most Honest hard working woman we have met. Her devotion to her family and friends is undeniable. She is a true SWEETHEART and so very talented. This week we would like to honor
Check out Carolyns fabulous blog and give her a big High Five :)

Carolyn, display this Award Proudly my dear..you are truly incredible.
The next BIG Challenge Give a Way is Here!! :)
I thought we would do something a little different. As much as I love Stampin Up…I thought the next prize could be for ANY product brand on the market!! The easiest way to make this happen is to give a way $$$CASH$$$!!!
I know how bad this economy has hit some people and thought the little extra cash may help too:) If you win, you can use the money any way you like :) Spoil yourself or pay bills..it 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 more fun don’t you? We will mix it up each month so stick around for awhile and have some fun with us :)

Our DT would like to THANK all of YOU for inspiring US.
Since we started, we are all having so much fun visiting and commenting on everyone’s cards.
So let’s spread the word, have some more fun and see what transpires.
Here is the plan…..
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!! We are at 160 follower count now, 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.

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.

You will be amazed at the insides...etc Some are shaker cards, acrylic, mini books and some are gift card holders. They are all so wonderful, so be sure to click on the sample cards and visit the DT blogs for all their card's details.
