Are you ready for some madness - Midnight Madness that is!  LOL!  I know I say it each week, but I cannot believe it is Tuesday already and time for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge!

It is a big week this week and lots of news to share, but first - my card - gotta to get my priorities right!  LOL!

I have used an image from our weekly sponsor Stamp and Create!  I love these adorable images and love the opportunity to use one of them.  I have coloured the image with SU Chalks and a Blender Pen - you can see my Tutorial on Colouring a Stamped Image with Chalks here.

I have added some small roses layered onto flowers cut from lace, Vintage Corners and Basic Grey DP.
