Wow can you believe this year is just flying by? I wanted to just give you all a heads up…. We always have the wheels turning here at the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge blog. The MMDT are already working on the next big event and have some fun and exciting twist in store for you before the year is out. So be sure to keep an eye out for those fun things coming in the near future.

I am happy to say that in the last few months we have been very fortunate to have some wonderful sponsors for our challenges. We are already booking spots for next year. We are thrilled to say we are rebooking some of our past sponsors as well as booking new ones. If you are a NEW business just starting out, or a seasoned business that is well established, we would love to help!!! I, along with our entire design team would promote your products through this venue if you sponsored us. What this would mean for yourself is high profile marketing of your product with a direct link to your store or blog. We have monthly and weekly spots open in 2010. So contact me and I will fill you in on dates available and all the details. I would like to invite anyone who is interesting in sponsoring our challenges to please contact me directly at heatonup@verizon.net. I look forward to talking with you :)
You have till Midnight EST 10-20-09 to complete our BLOG HOP and also to get your MMSC23 entries in to qualify for all the wonderful prizes we have going on right now. One winner will be drawn for the bonus prize on Wednesday, so be sure to check back for that. We will be contacting our Blog Hop winners to ask for that secret phrase.. Do you have the phrase yet?? :) If you miss our sketch challenge deadline, you are still welcome to link up to Mr Linky, but any entries after the "LAST CALL" will not be in the drawing.

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 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.
