Happy November folks!
November 2nd is a special day for me as 8 years ago today I married the love of my life and best friend, Arjan. We've actually been together for 15 years so it kind of feels like we've been married much longer than the 8 years...but that's a good thing!!
Over at Midnight Madness it's time for another sketch...are you all ready?
Congratulations to all our winners this week
Our Masterpiece Award goes to
Our Remarkables Awards go to
We have some great sponsors with fabulous prizes this week
Our weekly sponsor is DRS Designs
Our Monthly sponsor is Paper Temptress 
Priscillastyles store is also sponsoring this week!
For my cards this week I used something from both sponsors. My first card is using this beautiful candle stamp from DRS Designs which I colored in copics and popped up on foam dots. The background dp is from my stash from last year, gems were from Michael's and the silver strands are left over Christmas strings. I will definately be using this stamp again as I just love how it turned out and see many possibilities with it.
My second card is made using these gorgeous papers from Paper Temptress. Let me tell you, when you see these papers in real life they are so fabulous, you kind of don't want to use them all at once!
The papers I used are called Vintage Silver Lustre and Stardreams AZ in Azalea. The shine on both these papers is just beautiful and I tried to capture it here in the photo, although in real life you really see the difference. The sweet little angel image called Little Guardian Angel is from Sunshine and Giggles. Isn't she just the sweetest little thing! I colored her in prismacolored pencils and copics then sprinkled some ice stickles on her wings.
Well looking at all these fantastic prizes this week I think we will have a lot of entries for MMSC78! What do you think?
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and for those of you who so kindly leave comments for me, they are so appreciated! I'm hoping that I will get the chance to visit some blogs this week as my computer has not been so nice lately! Now I have a new connector, let's hope it will work a little better! 
Until next time! 
Have a great week
