Midnight Madness - Literally!!

This past week has been a whirlwind for me - very exciting, but a whirlwind. Today I feel like I have been chasing my tail...lots of cards started at various stages, but hard to get one finished...but I have got the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge finished...This is one of my favourite challenges (okay, they are all favourites) and I would have been so disappointed to have missed the deadline!!

I have used a scripture and Nestie that my friend Kathy (aka Wattle) has sent me, I just love that Labels 4 Nestie!!) and combined it with flowers from the lovely Abby's Candy, plus that gorgeous butterfly which came in a RAK from one of my Twisted Sisters, Peggy (aka Marilyn Prestonn) and the Vintage Corner which was also from one of my Twisted Sisters Judy Kell - where would I be without my friends - well, one thing is for sure - this card would be pretty boring! LOL!

I have added a punched border, WHICH IS MINE!! LOL!, Ribbon and bling and sponging complete this soft and feminine card!! I have realised that I have done no stamping on it...but there is still one amazing mess to clean up before the kids get home!!

It is all very exciting for me today...I received a box of stamps from Layers of Colour and I can hardly wait to get them inky....I have actually done a few more things for the Design Team, which have been added to my gallery on their site, so I will be uploading them here a bit later today - all going well! I hope you come back to check them out...or pop over to Layers of Colour - and don't forget to check out my Blog Candy, there is a link on my sidebar!

Thank you for stopping by and for your encouraging comments, especially over my exciting news. I do appreciate your support and love to read your comments, they mean a lot to me!! Hopefully this will not be my only post today...I have a few things waiting to be posted - you had better grab a coffee for your next visit! LOL! God bless you!
