The MMSC has two sketches this week for you to choose from. This is the one I chose to do.






I'm glad to be back doing a Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge, found here. I think those girls are still on a cruise and will be back soon. Hope everyone had a blast on the high seas.

I'm also entering my card into the Crafty Calendar Challege here. The challenge is Blue and the optional extra is Flowers.

Woo Hoo Benz, so good to see you join the MMSC. You did such a magnificent job with your creation this week. LOVE the punched flowers, the beautiful brad, dp, sentiment and flowing leaves. Golly Gee, what a wonderful job!! Make sure you give me credit as I told them I was the only one having everyone join the challenge and they'd be lost without me. Guess that didn't happen!! LOL!!
