Good morning folks...hope you all enjoyed a lovely weekend with good weather. I hear it's been snowing in some places already, just not as far South as here!! It's been a while since I've seen snow and I am so snow sick!!! LOL I'm having withdrawals from it so if there's anyone out there that wants to send some my way....I'll take it with open arms!!! For those of you who celebrate it, are we all ready for a Happy turkey day????I have my turkey in the freezer at the moment so no worries about it running away before the feest! Today my son has his Thanksgiving feest at school and is then off school for the rest of the week. Fun, fun, fun!
OK enough chatter...today here at Midnight Madness we have another sketch for you and it's another good one, but first things first....Congratulations to all our winners this week!!

For my project this week I decided to alter a gift bag that I had lying around the house. It was pretty to begin with but also calling me to make it a little more fancy! 
So with some utterly delicious paper from Paper Temptress I began working on my design and decided to keep it all in the green tones. I chose one of Priscilla's lovely Christmas trees and colored it in copics then added lots of sparkle to it by painting it with modge podge sparkle. I had a Christmas decoration with small silver balls that I took apart and placed some of them on a few of the circles, some silver gems and stickles to give some extra dimension and shine to the edges of the tree. I cut the tree out and popped it up on foam
The Happy Holidays stickers and snowman are from my stash from last year, snowflakes and glittery leaves are too. Ribbon is from Michael's. The dp colors I used from Paper Temptress are Serpentine (Stardreams Serp) and Emerald (Stardreams Em) 
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you will check out my DT sisters blogs and show them some love.
