Happy Tuesday everyone!
I hope you all enjoyed your Halloween weekend and had some fun! Now that the trick or treating is over I guess now we need to start thinking about plans for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. Where has this year gone to???? Is anyone else thinking the same thing as me? The weeks and months have flown by super fast this year. Talking of flying by....it's time for Midnight Madness once again....are you guys ready?
First we need to congratulate our Midnight Madness Masterpiece Award winner for this week....and that is #58 Craftypagan....congratulations Rowena!Our Midnight Madness Remarkables Award goes to
#3 Karen Wallace
#9 Karen Lynn
#40 Pam124
Congratulations ladies....and thank you to all our players that join us each week.

Our sponsors for this week are Digi Stamp Characters by Heather Ellis who provided the DT with these adorable digi stamps. I just loved creating with Heather's sweet images as you can see, I ended up making two cards with them!!
Our monthly sponsor is Michelle's Scrapbooking and More

Ok, now onto my cards....I used the two adorable images called Puur button which is the cat one and Pure Innocence, the little girl with the snowman both from Heather Ellis. They are colored in prismacolor pencils, some highlights in glitter glue and the snow is embossing powder. The top card is a recessed window design from a tutorial on SCS found here. I have to admit that the MM sketch this week was not the easiest to complete with this tutorial but I accomplished it after some time!! When it was finished I looked at it and thought it was a little too plain, I should have dry embossed the dp.....so I ended up making the second card with the embossing!! Heather's images are so easy to color that the second card was just begging to be made....te he!

  1. Two treats in one post. Cute little images and colored so well. I do love the embossed, it does change the look of the card. You are really putting a dent in your holiday cards. Great job on your recessed window, I can see the depth it created by that. Great cards Charlotte, Jane

  2. Oh gosh, these are just darling hun!! I love them both and the sparkle is sooo pretty!! ;) What a totally beautiful design with the sketch!! HUGS

  3. These are both so sweet Charlotte!! I especially love your blue one with the snowmen and all the embossing!! Awesome coloring and take on the sketch!!

  5. Yes, I am thinking like you (but then, I always do). Where has the year gone? Can't believe we are at the holiday season already. What a busy year.

    I am loving the whole 2 for 1 thing here. Now, if I can be lucky enough to find holiday sales like this ;)

    Your cards are both adorable. I am a huge fan of pink, but I have to say that I love all that dry embossing on the blue card. Both are winners with me.

    Thanks for sharing, and for your friendship. You are a blessing to me. Can't say it enough I guess.
