MIDNIGHT MADNESS (MMSC40)

Happy Tuesday Everyone!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and got to do some fun stuff! I was lucky this weekend to have a tour and free lunch onboard the cruise ship Eurodam from Holland America. Wow, what a huge and stunning ship this is, so beautifully decorated inside and the indonesian rice buffet was so delicious. A real treat! Listen to me going on about my weekend when I should be talking about Midnight Madness!! Oops!
OK so we are on week 40 already....wow! can you believe it! We had such a great number of entries which was fabulous for the DT to view...it's such a pleasure to visit your blogs and see all those beautiful creations!
Our MMSC39 Gold Star Award goes to # 56 Darsie
Our Remarkables go to #23 Ann and #61 America

Stamp and Create is our sponsor this week and I would like to thank Lacey for showering the MMDT with such fantastic stamps to craft with. We are having a ball inking them up.
Here's a little about Lacey...
I was a stay-at-home mom for 7 years so stamping was a great way for some “Mommy time”. But after stamping for over 2 years, my hobby became my obsession..so my obsession became my dream! Now I own an on-line store! Stamp and Create is a new on-line store carrying many popular brands of stamps, paper, and embellishments including: Wags ‘n Whiskers Rubber Stamps, High Hopes Stamps, Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps, Whiff of Joy, Stampavie, Penny Black, The Greeting Farm, Basic Grey, 7 Gypsies, Shimmerz, Nestabilities (always 20% off!!), charms and more!! I am always adding new items to the store…and I will also be adding to my Design Team...so check us out at http://www.stampandcreate.com/ On February 12th, Wags 'n Whiskers is having a Blog Hop and Release. In addition to releasing 8 new images from our Illustrator Crissy Armstrong, we will be releasing 5 images from our new artist...new to the stamping world! Come join the fun!

Our Monthly Sponsor is Cornish Heritage Farms, who so generously gave the DT lots of stamps to play around with! Thank You so much for the lovely stamps!

My card this week is using one of Stamp and Creates cute Wags n Whiskers images. Isn't she just the sweetest thing! I loved coloring this image and had fun adding all the little details too! I colored her in prismacolored pencils, added some flock to the puppy and some glitter to the wings and butterflies. I stitched the card using a scalloped stitch and added the lace and ribbon and finally the metal beads and flowers. I'm happy with how it turned out, and this is one image I will definately use again and again!

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you found a little inspiration here. Please check out my DT sisters blogs to see their gorgeous creations!
Challenges I entered with this card
Pixie Dust Challenge - Decorative border
Sweet Stampin Challenge - Floral Frenzy
Hugs,
Charlotte

  3. Hi Charlotte

    I was so glad to see you again, and thank you so much for your sweet words. You always put a smile on my face.

    I think that blue is a very difficult color to use, so it is so nice to see how you use it. It is very inspirational. The image of the little girl with the dog is just adorable! Hve you put som fluffy stuff on the dogs face? It looks like that and it is soo cool! Great job!

    I have something for you in my blog.
