Midnight Madness #13 - New Month, New Sponsors!

It's the beginning of a new month, new sponsors, new prizes and our new guest designer for the month! Wow, we have so much going on and so many chances to win!

Our new monthly sponsor for August is Simon Says Stamp! They are offering a $50 gift certificate to the winner this month!! What a great prize to win! Be sure to play for your chance to win this one!

As an added Bonus Prize, Jeni has offered some amazing gifts as well. Be sure to play along with Midnight Madness and become a follower of Jeni's Blog! She has some very lovely items up for grabs! You won't want to miss your chance at this Candy!

Our weekly sponsor is Scor-Pal. They sent each of us some awesome two sided tape called Scor-Tape to try. I used it on my envelopes and WOW is this stuff strong. I'll post some pics of that this week. Really, really love this product. The one cool thing about it is you do not need scissors, it just rips right off the roll. I can never find my scissors when I need them so this is a wonderful feature for me!

And Priscilla announced our August Guest Designer....Melissa Bove. She is a wonderful talent and we are so lucky to have her joining us this month! I'm hoping to learn a few things from her! Be sure to check out her blog, as she has some sweet candy up for grabs!

This tree is one of my digi's called Tree Flourish. I also used my little Pumpkins in the lower right corner. I changed up the sizes of the pumpkins as no two pumpkins are alike! I used a brayer to create the background of this card. Stickles and several paper punches!

I had a FANTASTIC time at CHA last week. I think I am finally over my Jet Lag! I will get my pictures organized and get them posted tomorrow. I even won a prize...ok...a HUGE prize. I couldn't believe it. There were over 5,000 entries and they drew my name! How cool is that?!?!?!?! I even got to meet the VP of CHA!!!! We spent quite a bit of time talking to her. Very lovely lady. Winning the prize and meeting her were definitely the BIG MOMENTS in my trip! I'll tell you all about it tomorrow!
