Our November Guest Designing Diva!!!

Welcome Sandee Shanabrough :) I am so excited to announce our November Guest Designer Diva. Sandee has been a faithful Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge player for quite some time now. Many of you already know her and if not, it is with great pleasure that I get to introduce you to her. Her work is just amazing and she is extremely talented. I know her work will bring so much inspiration to the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenges this next month. Here is a little bit about her.....

"I am so excited to have been asked to be a part of this team for the month of November! I have been playing in the weekly sketch challenges for quite a while now and have enjoyed each and every sketch. Thank you Priscilla and the whole MMSC team for having me this month and for all of your hard work getting this organized and making this so much fun each week! I have been crafting most of my life. My mother is very artistic and I credit her for giving me the crafting gene! I was introduced to stamping in the late 90’s by a sweet friend (Hi Beth!) and was instantly hooked. I love all of the wonderful tools, embellishments and, of course stamps, that are available now! My dear hubby of 30 years is so wonderful and encouraging of my addiction, ahem, I mean hobby! We have two grown children and three precious grandchildren. My oldest granddaughter loves stamping with her Grammie, and we stamp together every time she visits! Pretty soon, I’ll have the other two stamping with me too! I have lived in Georgia my whole life and have been working with the same company for 29 years. Hubby and I hope and pray we’ll be able to retire within the next few years. I need more time to stamp!! With the holidays coming up, this will be a fun month to be a part of this team! I am looking forward to it!"

Sandee will be helping us choose our December Guest Designing Diva. We have some really fun things planned for Dec, including a "Holiday Blog Hop" We know that this time of year can get a little crazy, BUT if you have the extra time and would like to be our NEXT Diva, just let us know by leaving us a comment. Stop by Sandee's Blog and give her a shout out!!


Sandee, we are just thrilled to have you with us, and below is your Guest Diva Logo. Please display it proudly :)

I would like to take this opportunity to make a couple announcements. Shawne from out DT will be taking out time to focus on her beautiful family and of course on her expanding stamp line. So we now have Jessica, Sonya, Kimmie and Shawn on our prestigious Alumni list. We are so proud of these wonderfully talented ladies and we are so happy for our design team members that are making leaps and bounds in the craft world. Many are enthralled with their own stamp lines and we could not be more happy for them. We are proud to call them part of the Midnight Madness Alumni. They will always be our friends and are sad to loose them to our Alumni group. We have a special Midnight Madness Alumni Logo just for you ladies. We would be honored if you displayed it proudly. Thank you for being a part of our group these last few months.

As sad as we are to see our friends names move to the Alumni column, we are just as proud to announce our newest long term team members. Please help me in Congratulating.......

Carol Hurlock and Linda Lucas!!

On behalf of the whole Midnight Madness Design Team, we are so excited to maintain this wonderful flow we have going at the moment. You both add so much to the team and this collaboration is bound to generate tons of inspiration and a bunch of new, fresh ideas for our team and for all who follow the MM blog. Thank you for joining us.

We would like to thank EVERYONE who entered our diva challenge. We have so many super talented people playing our challenges!! You have no idea how hard it is to vote each month. We will be looking for a guest designer each month, so please keep playing because we love the inspiration everyone brings to us. If it was not for our players, there really would not be a Midnight Madness Sketch Challenges. So Thank you :) For a more details on what we are looking for click HERE and scroll down.

You could be the NEXT Guest Diva :)>
