MMSC114 Time Flies....

...when you are having fun - and isn't that true with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge - it sure is for me!  This weeks post has mixed feelings for me as it my last as a Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge Design Team Member....

This Design Team is such a great group of girls - I have played along since the very first challenge, became a Guest Diva and then full time on the Team - and what a ride!!

Today's card is symbolic - the Clock hands are as near to Midnight as I could stamp them (LOL)
I have used this months sponsors flowers - thank you Petaloo for being so generous to us on the Design Team - we love it!!

The sentiment is so true - the time has flown and I have such wonderful memories to take with me - one of them being the CAR WASH - you will have to ask Charlotte about that one

 - and the gorgeous work of art that a former DT member Sue McMahon created with my DT photo when she got certified with Copics - you can see it here - infact going back to link to this post I read what I had written back on MMSC44 - that is 70 posts ago - can you believe that - and nothing has changed to I am going to quote myself - skeery eh! LOL!!

....you know, these girls are the best, I love each one of them, they have all made my life richer and I have so much fun with them. My DH often says that he has never heard me laugh so much as when I am online with the MMSC Girlz, my friends - thank you girlz - for the laugh you gave me with this photo - I love it! Thank you too for being so special and supportive - you are all my mentors and have touched my life - I {{{heart you!}}} MMSC44 March 9 2010

Nothing has changed girlz - except I {{{heart}}} you more and will miss you.. and that is all I am going to say about that - except to thank all of you for your love, support and friendship - you really have made my time on the MMSC DT so wonderful - I would love you to visit sometime!!  I am not moving on from creating - infact I have some wonderful opportunities the latter part of this year and I am having to streamline to have to have the time to be able to give these things my best - I will share with you when I can - believe me - you will hear me shouting with excitement from there!!
