MMSC45 - Rainy Day Bear


It's Tuesday and time for a little Midnight Madness! We are so excited to share with you a few new things we have going on ....

1. We are having a Caribbean Crafting Cruise :) Want to come with us? Carol on our DT has the best connections and she is getting the “Midnight Madness Group” great rates that come with all the extras, free craft room, upgrades & etc...

2. We have Blog Candy up for grab just for helping spread the news about the MM Crafting Cruise.

3. We are so very "Proud" of all our MMSC player's work, so we are now going to display your work by adding the thumbnail entry system by inlinkz (Thank you Carolyn for the idea & Roberta for the link)

4. We are still accepting applications for our "DT CALL" if you would like to send one.

On this weeks card, I used Rainy Day Bear digi stamp and a new background digi I made just for this sketch challenge. It's called Raindrops. I glazed them with Crystal Effects for that wet look.

I colored him in bright orange and yellow copics and added a few crystals for just a little more sparkle. :)


I used Priscilla's Slide Top Envelope Kit to make my envelope this week. It was really very simple to use. She is our sponsor this month so check out her new store!

Our weekly sponsor is Michelle's Scrapbooking and More. Thank you for being a repeat sponsor!

Congratulations to all our winners from last weeks challenge! We hope you like the new linking system. It sure is cool!

Have a great week!
