MIDNIGHT MADNESS (MMSC39)

Happy Tuesday everyone!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend and did something fun! I was very proud of my little boy on Saturday as he won 2nd place in his Kindergarten art show.....who hoo!
Our MMSC38 Gold Star Award goes to...

Our Remarkables Award this week goes to...

Our MMSC39 weekly Bonus sponsor is..... Faith from
Designed2Delight was launched on eBay in February 2008 as my one-of-a-kind handmade card boutique. Now my love for paper, cardmaking, and rubber stamps has grown into a passion for drawing digital stamps. As a card artisian myself, I create digital stamps with the card artist in mind. My digi stamps (soon to be in red rubber) are hand drawn and truly unique! Please visit designed2delight.com to view my full range of stamps.
Cornish Heritage Farms (CHF) is owned & run by Richard & Liz Pomeroy. Why the name? Richard & Liz are originally from Cornwall, England hence the Cornish Heritage & the 'Farms' is the 100 acre farm in north central Montana where they live & where all the stamps are manufactured. Richard & Liz believe in producing a high quality product so all the stamps are deeply etched, red rubber. CHF is a diverse stamp company in the fact that it consists of a variety of different licenses & styles, ranging from very detailed (Thomas Kinkade) to simple line art (Tom Fun Collection) therefore offering something for everyone.
My card this week is using one of Faith's sweet digi images called Beary Good. The image is supposed to have a plate of cookies for Santa but as I decided to make it into a Valentine's card the cookies didn't make it....No I didn't eat them... they just disappeared!!! Ha ha! I colored the little bear in prismacolored pencils and added some stickles to add a little sparkle. The dp is by DCWV called Be Mine. Flowers are from Prima, gems and ribbon from JoAnn's.


Thank you to all you lovely crafters who left sweet comments for me last week, I so appreciate them. I have had some computer issues unfortunately when I visited other blogs, and it's becoming a daily occurance, so if I haven't commented on your cards I do apologize. I'm trying to figure out what I can do about it to prevent the problems from occuring! Thank you for your patience!

No big surprise that we are thinking alike again, huh? Your card is magnificent! Congrats to your little boy too...Isn't it exciting when things like that happen to our little ones? He must be thrilled.
