Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #61 (MMSC61)

. Welcome to another week of Midnight Madness. What a great week of entries we had last week. Everyone’s talent and creativity just amazes me week after week. It is also cool to see some of you incorporating some of the CDAC challenges with your Midnight Madness Sketch cards. There is so many talented artists on that site it is just a joy to look through the gallery collection of over 7000 projects made with digital stamps. The CDAC is got so much to offer, so if you have not been over there yet, I encourage you to stop in for a peak. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Jessica for being such a fabulous guest diva . Your talent and CAS flair of card making really made for a nice variety to our sample over the last 3 months. I look forward to working with you again real soon.
We are very excited to Holly joining in the fun, so please help me in welcoming our newest Guest Diva.
Holly Miller
Hello! My name is Holly Miller and I am delighted to have been picked for "Guest Diva " at "Midnight Madness". I have been stamping about 10 years and continue to be fascinated with all the new products. One of my favorite things to create are my own embellishments. Nothing is safe from being turned into something to decorate a project. I work full time as a Clinical Laboratory Scientist and have 2 grown children. I also enjoy cooking and reading.
This weeks's "YOUR PICK" Make it fancy, clean and simple, or somewhere in-between. Remember to click on the sneak peek button on the side bar for the following weeks sketch each Friday.
Enter one style or both this week.
Just have fun and come play with us :)

*Sew Many Cards
Here is a little bit about our awesome sponsor this this month....
My name is Angela and I own Sew Many Cards. I have a husband, an almost 10year old daughter, a two year old son, & a dog/puppy: Hershey. The images of Sew Many Cards came from a dream that my husband had of a group of animals that were "SEWN Together" with patches & stitching, hence the name, which he also came up with. You will find that every image in the Sew Many Cards collection has patches and stitching, even the ones that are not animals. I love to draw & almost every image is either an inspiration from my family or a request from my great customers & design team. Please ask if you need something specific or would like to request something to be made.
You can find all her adorable images at
