MMSC87 Three Generations

Isn't ti great to be back into full swing with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge - we have loved seeing all of the entries!  This week is a very special week for me - would you like to know why - there are three generations of my family playing - yes THREE!!  My Mother, daughter and of course ME and all I will be showing all of the cards on THIS POST!!

First I want to show you one of my MMAC87 cards using an image from "priscillastyles' Stores - how adorable are these Raining Hearts - they are perfect for Valentine's Day which is fast approaching

I have used Dimensional Magic  on the umbrella to give it the appearance of being wet - the sentiment has been cut using my Grand Calibur and the Large Oval and Large Scalloped Ovals Nestibilities

My next card is for the "priscillastyles" Design Team - I have used another image from "priscillastyles" Stores - these  divine Flying Birds

and also added some of the gorgeous shimmer products from our sponsor Lindy's Stamp Gang  - I have to say I am very impressed with this product - the shimmer is so rich and as usual hard to capture....I have also used the dauber on my flower - this card IRL is so pretty and the shimmer is amazing!  

I am very proud to have my 12 year old Daughter, Maddy, playing along this week - she has used a "priscillastyles" image - vase of flowers and made a gorgeous CAS card - I just love cardmaking with Maddy, it has been fun to see her style develop ( and a relief too as she has claimed my Crafting Supplies when I.....ahem...die!  LOL) 

Maddy has her own album in my SCS gallery - you can comment on her card HERE - I know she would be thrilled to get some comments over there and here too!

Last but in no way least - my Mum Lesley aka SuperNan has played along this week to - yes, we have three generations playing this week - how cool is that!

This is even more special as Mum has had eye surgery and this is her first card back after being MIA for a couple of months - Mum is has commented that it is very basic - but look at all that detail!  You can comment on Mum's SCS gallery here - lets encourage her to keep playing - cause WE LOVE IT!!
