MIDNIGHT MADNESS (MMSC10)

Happy Tuesday everyone!!

Woo hoo...whose excited about MMSC10? You should all be coz we not only have some fabby cards from our DT, some truly fantastic prizes to give out........but we also have the weekly bonus prize from one of my favorite artists..........the wonderful MR. DUSTIN PIKE!!! I'm so pumped that he has this fabulous prize for one lucky winner coz he is such an incredibly sweet guy and jumped at this opportunity...no hesitation at all....Way to go DUSTIN! He's such a great guy to work with and I know you all love his cute images as much as I do. This set that he is giving away is so very generous.....all of his images....that's right.....all 118 images!!! You absolutely can't beat that. So if you haven't already checked out the Midnight Madness site.......get a drag-on over there and read all about it. There are so many prizes that even I'm having a difficult time keeping track of them!!

Anyway, take a deep breath now....whoa.....I'm still on vacation so I hope you are all busy crafting to make up for my absence!!!! Hopefully I'm in the ocean somewhere....without sharks!!! and enjoying my time in the sun....we hope that this trip is more successful than the last!!!!! But we won't go into that!

For this sketch I used another Elisabeth Bell image called Country Garden....(hey did you check out my side bar for her blog candy yet????) I colored her in prisma color pencils, then placed her on the background I made using Martha Stewart ink for the sky and Starburst Sprays from Lindy's Stamp Gang (our July sponsor) for the grass. Awesome stuff that Starburst Spray as it gives a lovely sheen to the color. You can also spray it very lightly or put a nice thick coat on like I did to cover all the paper. The background papers are one of my favorites from Making Memories and the flowers I picked up from Michael's. I really enjoyed this sketch, pretty layout I thought. Anyway, let me know what you think.........just coz I'm away doesn't mean I'm not thinking of all my lovely cyber peeps out there.
