Hi My name is America Kuhn and I am seriously humbled to have been asked by Priscilla to join this exciting and mega talented Team.  I have long admired these talented artists! It is such a great honor to be here.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.
I am a SAHM of 4 terrific children and a US ARMY wife to my wonderful Soldier Husband who is currently deployed, serving in Afghanistan.  As a military family, we sacrifice but also learn to adjust. We move every 1-3 years and have been fortunate enough to have lived and traveled around the world. When I'm not busy with my children, I find myself paper crafting and find that my passion is with card making.  This fun hobby is a great outlet to everyday life.  I am very much looking forward to getting to know each of you and hope to be able to inspire you alongside this super fabulous Midnight Madness Design Team.  WOW!! What a thrill of a ride this promises to be.  :)

Hello everyone!!! 
My name is Silke Ledlow and I live in the beautiful State of Georgia close to Savannah. I'm married to my wonderful husband Jerry and we have three beautiful girls Sarah 13, Rebecca almost 10 and Miriam 6. Plus our biggest baby *Luke* he is our 2 year old boxer! I started stamping in 2001 and was hooked immediately. Shortly after I started my blog I have been crafty ever since. I'm so thrilled that Priscilla invited me to be part of her fabulous sketch team!  Hope you'll come and play along with us! Hugs ~S~
