The week has flown by and it is time for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge and what fun we have for you this week!  It has been so much fun having so many of you playing along - you are so inspiring!!  Are you ready for this weeks cards and sketch!

My first card is using Priscilla's gorgeous Fan with Rose image you can see it here at "priscillastyles" store.  I have coloured it with both Chalks and Prismacolor Pencils.

I cut around part of the rose and kept the rest as the rectangle, you can see it in the photo below and added a pearl to the fan and some lace down the side.  This panel has been popped up on foam dots!

My next photo is using the "priscillastlyes" image The Trunk - this was fabulous to colour, using my Prismacolors, for those of you who are wondering, I have not given up my 'trusty' Chalks, I have just been familiarising myself with the Prisma's - and I do love them!!

This image has so much potential and so much detail.  The Argyle Embossing Folder was used on the back ground panels, it has been sponged around the edges.

This week I have another card - a fun one with one of Priscilla's new images....how cute is this dog...

Here is a close up of all of the shimmer - I just had to do that to this dog!!

This week Priscilla will be leaving for the Midnight Madness Crafting Cruise, she will be taking some pictures and share with us here!  What a rough life - kicking in the Caribbean with a cool drink in hand overlooking the blue waters. Just a quick reminder: When linking up to inlinks for our challenges, please remember to do “direct post” links on your blog and not just the blog link. you can see how here!   Now you know while Priscilla is away the Design Team will be taking care of you - we always do!!

  6. Hi Linda, just stopped by to say how cute this card is, the different versions you used of the sketch. Feeling a bit better, but the pain meds are keeping me away from cardmaking, too dizzy, I guess. Should be done with them by next week.

    I thought I would let you know I was still alive and kicking even if I am not cardmaking. LOL

    Hugs to you, love you, peggyxo

  7. What is this Linda: 3 cards this week. You really are trying to up your status while the royal boss is away, aren't you? Trying to take over the whole MM challenges now I see.

    Well, we all know Priscilla is da boss, but I have to tell you, these cards are absolutely BEAUTIFUL as only you can do in your unique style. And, looky here, you've used Priscilla's images on all THREE cards!! Well, I nevah seen someone so desperate to get ahead with the boss as you. You're just lucky I'm not on the team right now, or I would have made a card for EVERY image Priscilla has!! LOL!!

    Now, be good while the boss is away okay - we know Gunn won't be!! LOL!!

  13. Oh wow! I was about to congratulate you for 2 cards again this week, only to scroll and see 3. They are all amazing, but I particularly adore the Paris trunk card. The argyle background is so perfect and I love neutrals!

    Hugs and Love!

  14. I love all your samples for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge Linda. Each shows a different way of using the sketch. I love your coloring of the images.

  15. Hi Linda, both of your cards are stunning as usual but I am especially drawn the the one with the runk image. The DP you have used looks like real leather and that I cannot get over! LOVE IT! Blessings, Tracy MMDT
