Midnight MADNESS Sketch Challenge ...

Did you notice I capitalized MADNESS in my title??  That's because if you haven't already noticed ... there is MADNESS going on over at the MMSC because they have given us a SNEAK PEEK at the next THREE challenge sketches!  THAT'S JUST MAD!!  But a heck of a lot of FUN!!












Today's sketches look like this . . .  CAS sketch on the left and the FANCY sketch on the right.  Today I'm going with the CAS layout.  It's been a very busy holiday weekend for me ... hubby's home on vacation ... and we've been trying to get the outside Christmas decorating done while the weather is still 'decent'.


I have once again used one of Priscilla's awesome digi images.  This set is called "Christmas Bells" and you can find them HERE.  I have used Prismacolor markers for my coloring along with Silver Stickles for added sparkle.  This set is just perfect for my holiday cards and with the addition of all the amazing sketches offered at MMSC ... how could I go wrong!!

I'm also entering this creation into the following challenges:

Scrappy Frogs Challenge - Christmas
Ellephantastic Challenges - Red & Green
Christmas Stampin' - Anything Goes
Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge - Christmas
Sew Many Cards Challenge - Red & Green
Crafty Sentiments Designs - Christmas
Digi Doodle Shop's Best - Red & Green
Hodge Podge Shop Challenge - Anything Goes
Stampin' B's DT Challenges - Holiday Card

Thanks for poppin' in today!  Hope you have a wonderful day!

An absolute beauty! Do I ever love Christmas bells! Brings back memories of a bell arrangement my mother hung on an outside door at Christmas. So glad you joined the Stampin B's with this wonderful creation.

Darlene this is just stunning. I love how you colored and shaded those gorgeous bells and it looks awesome against the green and red paper you used. The silver ribbon was the perfect touch to enhance the silver in the bells. Outstanding. Great job with the sketch this week. Thank you so much for playing along with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.

Bear Hugs,
Carol
