Happy Tuesday Everyone!
Yes it's that time of week already...time for some Midnight Madness!! The DT has seen some beautiful entries from MMSC24 but I think a few of you go scared off from the challenge!!! It was a little more challenging than some of the other sketches, but kudos to those of you who did participate!! Well done!

Congratulations ladies, don't forget to display your lovely badge and wear it proudly!

Thank you to all the lovely peeps who join in with us each and every week, and a huge Welcome to those of you who have just joined us. You make our job so enjoyable seeing all those fabulous creations each week.

This is the last week that Chelsea over at Crafting Life's Pieces is sponsoring the MM team. Chelsea...thank you so much for your generosity during this month, for giving the DT your line of stamps to use and create with. We so appreciate it! Chelsea is giving away one $50 gift voucher to a lucky winner!!!

Our sponsor this week is Shawne from Studio313, who supplied the DT with some of her beautiful images. Thanks so much Shawne for doing this for us!

I had so much fun with this Fairytale Rosebud castle that Shawne sent to me....I felt like I was wisked away into another world!!! I decided to make a trifold card which is literally two cards stuck together in the middle but with a book appeal to it. I love how it turned out and hope you do too! I colored the image in prismacolor pencils, layered parts of the castle to give some depth to it and added a few extra little toadstools and leaves. The wider ribbon I put under the top layer of dp so that it ties at the side like a keepsake book.

Card recipe: DP - DCWV Once Upon A Time stack, Ribbon - Sheer Creations from Michael's, Flowers inside - Prima Fabric Fancies in Opal, Flower outside from Michael's, metal crown charm - from my stash, Gems - Studio18 from Michael's.

I hope you enjoy your day!

Hugs, Charlotte
