We are so happy to announce that this week we have the wonderful Simon Says Stamp sponsoring us for our weekly Bonus prize for MMSC22. They are always one of our favorite sponsors because they have over 100,000 items in stock and ship USA orders over $60 and International orders over $120 for free. We are pleased to have them as a reoccurring sponsor here at the Midnight Madness sketch challenge blog. Be sure to stop in and check out all they have to offer.

Our Monthly sponsor is Gurlee Girl Designs and we can't thank Chelsea enough for giving the DT her entire stamp selection to create our cards with this month. Not only is Chelsea such a generous lady but she is also one of the most detail oriented people when it comes to her cards and layouts.....you should check out her blog.....if you haven't already!

For my card this week I chose the Hot Cocoa sweetie. I had so much fun creating her that I also made a cute little covered box to go along with the card. The image is colored slightly different but thought it would make a nice set for some little girl somewhere! I colored the image in prismacolored pencils and OMS, dry embossed the blue background paper with snowflake embossing folder from cricut, added lots of ribbon from JoAnn's and a little fur to make her look like she's sitting on a cozy rug!! The snowflakes are from my stash from last year and the gems are from Michael's. The inside is also decorated, but I ran out of time to photograph that!

Thank You for stopping by, I'd love to hear what you have to say......and don't forget to visit my DT sisters to check out their works of art.

Hugs, Charlotte
