Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #69 (MMSC69)

Greetings to our Sketch Challenge family. Here in the United States we are getting ready for the three day Labor Day Weekend Holiday. The last of the summer barbecues and the trips to the lake for swimming and boating, as the heat of the summer will soon be a memory. It seems those living on the East Coast will have to keep their eyes and ears on the storms that are churning out in the Atlantic. Make sure you have updated your hurricane kits!
***Just wanted to remind you, that when loading your cards to inlinkz to please leave us a "last" name or at least an initial. Our running players list is nearing 1000 players and we are getting a lot of duplicate names. This will help in differentiating between players.

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 :)

Hello! I am Roberta from Prairie Fairy Designs. I am a digital stamp company featuring artwork not only created by me but also my two kids, ages 9 and 12. They are featured on the site as the Fairy Princess and the Prairie Prince.
I have been an artist for as long as I can remember and have always loved to create. Two years ago my sister-in-law invited me to a rubber stamp party. I laughed and said "Maybe I will buy something if I can use it to stamp on canvases.". Needless to say, I was hooked! Two years later, a lot of learning about computers, and a few setbacks with web stuff (I am so not tech savvy!) I finally accomplished my goal. We have been around since the spring and still growing.
If you have any questions about going digital, check out the site and the blog ( for more information, tips and tutorials. So head on over to and check it out!
Along with this stamp set you will get one free digi from their store!
Thank you so much Roberta!!
