Midnight Madness Week #5 (MMSC5)

The weekly BONUS WINNER for MMSC4 is Lisa V.
The bonus gift is just a LITTLE something to keep the excitement going throughout the month. Lisa please email me your address so I can send you your bonus gift :)

Welcome and what another great week we had. Remember you have till Midnight EST 6-9-09 to get your MMSC4 entries in for last weeks sketch. One winner will be drawn for our weekly BONUS GIFT give away Wednesday, so check back for that. If you miss the deadline, you are still welcome to leave a comment with your url so we can still check out your work. 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. This week we are proud to say the“MIDNIGHT MADNESS MASTERPIECE” Gold Star Award goes to.....
Enjoy your award :)
(email me if you would like the code for this badge :)
or you can just save as a picture)
This week the MMDT has nominated a very special person for the “Midnight Madness Cheerleader” Award. She was nominated for many reasons, but here are just a few. She seems to always be the first person to congratulate people. She always cheers us on and is willing to jump right in on top of the pyramid with her fun ideas and games. Thank you for making the Midnight Madness Design Team a FUN place to hang out. This week we would like to honor.....
Check out Jane's fabulous blog and give HER a big CHEER :)
Jane, display this Award are a joy to work with.
NOW TO THE $$$CASH$$$!!!
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, 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 for awhile and have some fun with us :)
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.

***********PLEASE READ ALL THE RULES :) **********

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.
