Sketch Challenge Star Award MMM

This person gets the Midnight Madness "Friendship" Award. Her gracious friendly personality allows her to make friends with such ease. As long as I have known her, she has be able to make and maintain so many friends via the internet. As you may know, keeping up with blog comments and keeping that personal contact can be a huge undertaking. She makes it look so easy and obviously knows the importance of what being a friend is all about. Her friendship is cherished by so many of us. Thank you for the incredible talent that you bring with your sample cards each week as well.

This week we would like to honor.....

Stop by and check out her Blog.
Thank you for your being my friend!!

Denise's Award Medium size

We are just thrilled to be getting weekly sponsor donations as well as monthly sponsors. Next week we will have a brand new Monthly sponsor to spoil our DT as well as our players..It is so very exciting that we can offer such a variety of weekly and monthly prizes to our players. This week the MMSC12 Bonus Winner will win a "Stampendous"seven piece clear stamp set donated by "More than Ink" and a Classic Scalloped Ovals "Spellbinder" Set donated by our very own DT member Jeni. Thank you to the both of you :)

“Refer your Friends for Freebies” Now sticking to our FRIENDLY theme this week, the Midnight Madness Sketch challenge has an added treat for you. We will be starting the “Refer your Friends for Freebies” this week and this is how it works….. for every "Brand NEW" participating friend you refer to our challenges, you will get an extra entry in our weekly bonus drawings through the end of August. As an added bonus, if three of your referrals enter our sketch challenge during the same week, I will mail you a special gift from Stampin Up. And the person who refers the most new friends by August 31st will Win a "Stampin Up" Grab bag of products worth over $100. Your friends can only be a “Brand NEW” friend once even though we welcome them to stay and play as often as they want and that person could then join in by referring new friends too. All you have to do is leave a comment stating your friend has entered the challenge, who they are and how you know them. Then email me with your address if three NEW friends enter in the same week. And last, email me by Sept 1st a list of referred friends and your grand total of participating friends for the $100 product prize. In the event of a tie, we will have a drawing. So now is the time to get in touch with all those friends of yours, catch up and invite them to play with us!

    I see my name is still listed as UNCLAIMED in the Mad Money category ... I made my comment before but don't know what else to do ... HELP!!

  11. Hi Darlene..I changed the wording on my side bar...
    You had 24 hours to post comments to the blog to claim the money.
    No worries you are back in the bowl for more drawings.. you can check out the rules for more details.. I would love to make an exception for you, but then I would have to do it for everyone and that would be defeating the point of having the 24 hour deadline : )
    Can't wait to see your your MMSC12 card :)

    I finally got my card done for this sketch. It was a great sketch. I would be very interested in a GDT spot. I am fairly new to card making (not crafts themselves) but would love a chance.

    Thanks for looking and considering
