This week we are proud to say the“MIDNIGHT MADNESS MASTERPIECE” Gold Star Award goes to.....
Enjoy your award and please display it proudly!
This week the MMDT has nominated a very special person for the “Midnight Madness Inspiration” Award. She was nominated for many reasons, but here are just a few. She is always so sweet with her compliments and always seems to find the small "details" in others work. She really is paying attention to what others create, even though her time is so limited. Her devotion not only to God, her family but also her friends is continually apparent. Thank you for all your encouragement, motivation, for setting such an excellent example and for being a part of the Midnight Madness Design Team. This week we would like to honor.....
Stop by and check out her Blog!
Chris, display this Award proudly!
You are a delight 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.

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.

    i enjoyed using this sketch - in fact, made a couple of variations that I did not post. I hope it is considered even though I messed up a bit with sizing the image and could not fit in all the strips. I have plenty of strips to use up! I made faux brads, using my eyelet punch. By the way, as always, the inspiration cares are just that - a great inspiration.

  9. Wow! What beautiful cards! Great job everyone! Thanks for the inspiration! And congrats to Chris & Lorelie!

    This is my first time participating in a Midnight Madness Sketch! I must say, it is alot of fun!! Thanks for such a fun blog/site!

  30. I love the design team's cards! I posted mine. I am having trouble posting a direct link back, any suggestions? Thanks. Julia

  31. Hi gals! Here is my entry for the week. Wow your cards are awesome!! Here is the link in case Mr L isn`t working.


    Sunshine :)

  32. Hello everyone..just a quick note...I have had to delete a couple of Mr. Linky's entered because the link entered did not work or in a couple of looked like the wrong card was entered to Mr. Linky. I looked for the correct MMSC card, but could not find them. Just wanted to let you know always, if you need help with anything, just email me at
    Also, just a little reminder that when linking your card to Mr. Linky, be sure to do a direct link so we can find it with ease. A DIRECT link normally starts with "http" and ends with "html". You will always be able to find this link on your top bar after clicking on the direct card post...not just your "blog". Hope that makes sense :) email any questions you may have :) okkie dokkie..the cards look FANTASTIC this week you ladies are getting REALLY GOOD with these sketches...should I make them harder ??? ;) only joking LOL Keep up the good work. We am really enjoying seeing what you guys come up with and I hope you guys are having FUN TOO :)

  33. Wowie....there are some awesome cards here. I'm throwing mine in the ring. This is my first card entered at this challenge and my first sketch challenge. This sketch was the cats meow for those of us that love to accessorize. I see I am not alone with liking bling. lol

  34. Hope I'm not too late with my upload for MMSC6: Here it is:

    What wonderful uploads there have been. Good luck to everyone!!!

  35. This is just wonderful, this week we have several new 'players', I sure hope they can come back and play with us again!!!

  36. Lovely sketch. Beautiful cards by the design team members, all are different from each other..Here's my card

  37. I loved this sketch- Thanks so much!

  38. This sketch was wonderful to play with. The cards made by the design team are all creative. Thanks!!! I linked my url wrong with Mr. Linky. I entered it again....hope it doesn't mess you up :(
