ARE YOU READY For MMSC2 ? Put your creative thinking cap on and join in the fun.








Here we are at the 2nd MMSC challenge already. Didn't that come by quickly? Last weeks first challenge was a huge success with some amazing entires. I was really excited to do this one, because I have been so anxious to use this image that a very sweet lady sent to me, and it seemed to be perfect for this sketch. I hope that you enjoy it and that it inspires you to create something beautiful yourself for the challenge. I will post the initial information from the first challenge in case someone new is coming to play. Please feel free to become a follower on my blog and get all the latest challenge updates and my submissions as well. I greatly appreciate all of my followers and when I offer my own blog candy, it will be exclusive to followers of my blog. I may find a spot on my sidebar for MMSC rules and info in the future to make it easy for anyone interested in participating.
The Midnight Madness DT was so impressed with the submissions, we all decided that each week we will be awarding a special Badge Award to one person for their outstanding sketch submission. It is called the "MIDNIGHT MADNESS MASTERPIECE" Gold Star Sketch Challenge Award (aka MMM). If you would like to be considered for this award, please make sure your card link is posted to Mr. Linky by Sunday of each week. This is our way to let you know how wonderfully talented you are and how much we appreciate you sharing your craft with us. Now, this was NO easy task! After we all viewed the wonderful cards entered for the week, we FINALLY came to a decision.
