I would like to thank all of our players for giving us so much inspiration each week. Visiting your blogs has been a journey into enjoying your creativity, zest for crafting, and lovely works of heart. Those brief moments when we read about your projects and how they relate to your life, open a window for us to be a part of your family and for you to be a part of ours. We are treated like honored guest when we arrive at your blogs for our visits. It is truly a pleasure and an honor to share with you and have you in our circle of friends.
To get the celebration started, I would like to start out this month with a big thank you to our Consistent players and to honor them for their commitment to the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. This group of ladies have played every sketch we have done (or have only missed a handful of them) since we started. We celebrate your love of crafting and enthusiasm for our sketch challenges with a special MM “Princess” logo. You are now an official member of the Midnight Madness Royal Court and hope you display this logo proudly. Would each of our new Princesses email me, I would like to send you a Royal Loyal Appreciation Gift.

This week is also a sad one for the DT as we have to say goodbye to Chris, who is on so many DT's I really have no idea how she keeps track each week. Chris is one of the sweetest ladies you will ever get to know, she has a heart of gold and creativity to match, so there is no wonder why she is in such popular demand!! Chris, you have such amazing talent and such a kind heart, we hope that wherever your creativity takes you that you will be happy. You know the ladies here love you to pieces and will miss you, but will keep checking up on you to see what beautiful creations you will be gracing your blog with. Please join me in wishing Chris the best of luck on her future endeavors.

My card this week was made using this gorgeous digi from Priscilla's store called Flying bird. I have to admit that my mojo is not where it should be right now so I am not completely happy with this card as I had wanted to make something really special and I don't feel I achieved it with this one! I will definately will use  this digi again.

Please stop by my DT sisters blogs to show them some love and don't forget to hop on over to Priscillas blog to get all the information regarding the fun stuff that's happening this month.
Enjoy your day!
