Midnight Madness & Crafty Secrets

What a day!!!  First I couldn't get my laptop to boot up this morning (it is now in the hands of the Geek Squad) ... then my car said "oil change required" ... and now I'm trying to get my cards uploaded using our "OLD, SLOW" home computer!!!  Guess I shouldn't complain ... at least I have a backup computer right!!!  Okay ... enough complaining ... time to show you what I came here to share!

The challenge over at Priscillastyles Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge was a lot of fun this week (as it is every week!).  I decided to use of of Priscilla's own digital images for today's creation.

You really should pop on over and check out the creations by her DT ... they are always inspiring!!!  Isn't this teapot by Priscilla vintagey delicious!!!  I just love it!!
I also have a creation to share with you for the SCS Crafty Secrets forum challenge today ... to use PINK & BLACK.  (pink must be the "color of the day")

I have used an image from the Crafty Secrets Girlfriends Booklet and the designer paper is also Crafty Secrets ... the Radiant pack.  Doesn't this group look like a FUN bunch??

Well, that's it for today!  I have to get dinner ready and try to get my other cards for tomorrow's challenges pre-posted ... that should take up the rest of my day!!  LOL!!   Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Darlene, I just love your card! You are showing off Priscilla's digi beautifully! Thanks so much for joining us this week at Midnight Madness!

  8. Hi Darlene! Do you know that I always write Darling when I am trying to type your name - I hope you will forgive me if I one day forget to spellcheck *LOL*

    I did see this card over at CDAC and LOVED it. I love the pink and green togheter - I could never use colors like that - would have never crossed my mind - but it looks sooooo good!
    I grew up in the 80's and back then we learnt that red and pink was the biggest NO-NO - but it looks good! The red roses on that teapot really catch you eye. This is beautiful and delightful!

    Thanks for joining Midnight Madness. I look forward to see your work and hope ou will join us next week also!
