Thank you everyone for helping out. I am still not 100%

Hello everyone and welcome to the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge for week #26. If you were here earlier, you know that your host Priscilla is ill and under the weather for the last couple of days. So if the post today looks a little different, it is because we are filling in for her to give her a break to rest and recover from being sick. We don't know if she has the bug or is entertaining that Oinker Mr. Swine, but we all wish her a speedy recovery. I appreciate everyone's patience while we get this up and running.

Rest assured that as soon as we get the information for our winners of the prizes we will post them. We ask for your understanding in this matter and just want to make you aware that we might be a little late this week. We will certainly keep you updated!

Our DT has already scheduled our next Blog Hop which will be coming to you all on Dec 8th. Our Holiday Blog Hop will be a week long Hop filled with surprises and of course prizes. If you would like to help spread the word about our next hop by posting this logo on your side bar we would appreciate it. As you know, here at the Midnight Madness Blog, anything can happen. We have a “Midnight Madness Prize Patrol” that will be on the look out for our “Special Midnight Madness Holiday Blog Hop Logo” If one of our team members spots this special logo, your name will go into a special drawing. (playing our challenges is NOT required for these prizes) We will be looking for our MM Holiday Logo from NOW until the Holiday Blog Hop starts.
We will be awarding an appreciation gift every week to one lucky person until our Holiday Blog Hop is launched, so the search starts NOW!!…good luck!!!

Month end drawings will happen sometime this week sometime (See above note regarding prizes). Today is the last day to enter MMSC25 for a chance at last weeks bonus prize. You have till Midnight EST 11-03-09 to get your MMSC 25 in to qualify. One winner will be drawn for our Bonus giveaway on Wednesday, so be sure to check back for that. If you miss the 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. This week we are proud to say the“MIDNIGHT MADNESS MASTERPIECE” Gold Star Award goes to.....

Enjoy your award and please display it proudly!
(if you would like the blinky code just email me;)

The Midnight Madness Team has created a very special award called The “Midnight Madness Remarkables” Award !! We would like to acknowledge those entries that are just exceptionally Remarkable!! During our voting each week, due to the caliber of the cards entered in our challenges, we end up with so many ties and close votes, so this Fairy logo is for those recipients to display proudly. If you would each like to take our fairy logo for your side bar, she would love to come stay with you.

Thank you all for playing and please help me in congratulating our “Midnight Madness Remarkables” award winners…..
