Happy Tuesday everyone!!

Well there is so much going on over at Midnight Madness, not sure where to start!!!

We are so excited to announce our very first Guest Designer for Midnight Madness. Our August Guest Designer is Melissa Bove. Many of you may know her from Splitcoaststampers. She is currently one of the “Dirty Dozen” girls. We are so honored to have her joining us for the next month. She is extremely talented and her work will bring so much inspiration to the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenges each week. She lives in Whiting, NJ, down near the Jersey Shore, with her hubby, Robert and her 3 ½ yr old son, Antonio who keeps her on her toes. She loves doing all kinds of paper crafts and her main passions are making cards and altering anything she can get her hands on, especially boxes! She loves to incorporate some type of stamping in almost everything she does. She started stamping about 3 years ago and it has quickly become an obsession for her. Melissa will be helping us choose our September Guest Designing Diva, so keep those creative juices flowing and be sure to let us know you are interested in being our SEPT Guest Designer. Please stop by her blog and give her a big shout out!

Congratulations to our very own DT sister Chris for having not one..... but two cards chosen in the top 10 over at http://www.toptencreations.blogspot.com/ This doesn't surprise me in the least as Chris' creations always blow me away...she is just one of the most talented ladies I know. Enjoy the spotlight Chris...it is sooooo well deserved!!!!


My card this week was such fun to make coz I just love the little beauty in her sundress and sunhat. This pretty little clear stamp is called "Cammy" and designed by Chelsea Dang over at Crafting Life's Pieces Chelsea has just recently opened her Gurlee Girl online store with two other little cuties too. I was lucky enough to win the set in her blog candy and I can't say enough about her creations. Chelsea makes the most beautiful tear bear scrapbook pages....just breathtaking creations, please go check her blog out because she is one very talented lady!

I decided to color Cammy in copics and keep her in a matching sundress and hat. I made her hat 3d with pop dots to give a little dimension. The MMSC13 sketch was fabulous, a little tricky with all the measurements..but I love how this one turned out. The background squares are sprayed with Lindy's gang starburst spray in "Jack in the pulpit teal." I took some cardstock cut into large rectangles, then sprayed each one with different saturations of the starburst spray. Some turned out really light and speckled then the others turned out darker and totally saturated. The frame around cammy is also sprayed then the corners punched. The flowers are from Micheal's and leaves which are also sprayed with the starburst spray, were made with a martha Stewart punch. The gems are from Michael's also.

I'm blown away...I won an award.....and for being Kindhearted!!!! Thank you my DT sisters, this is a wonderful award to be given and I will definately wear it with pride!

Let me know what you think!

Have a wonderful day!
