MMSC55 and a Big Hugs to the MMSC Design Team

Hello Friends, This week at MMSC we are still celebrating the 1 Yr Anniversary of Midnight Madness Sketch. We are having a party, my red carpet dress is at the very bottom..

Congrats to the winners of the Gold Star :#45 Bonnie O'Clair and Remarkables award:
#6 Christina C, #7 An, #8 Chris Olsen, #9 Karen Wallace, #24 Gini Cagle, #37 Nancy Bush, #56 Gry-Beate, Beautiful Cards this past week!

It is with much sadness and a heavy heart, that I am stepping down from this Magnificent, Creative and Funny team! My husband's work has required me to put more time into the job. My CFP Tax planning class is starting soon and will go through the entire summer to September. The children need more planning and a summer routine to help them, I am looking forward to spending more time with them and all of the family and guests coming to visit me for the Summer from Sweden and from New York :)

Lots of Hugs and kisses to the Midnight Madness Team!

My card:

I had to make a Graduation card for my Brother in law who graduated from Airforce Boot Camp and so this had to be a manly card. I used Whiff of Joy Oakley image and some airforce wings, replaced the lace ups with the Airforce logo. Still was very fun. For the blue fleur de lys it was a stencil that was covered with liquid applique and then smashed on to the paper, heated for puffiness.

paper: Winter wonderland - K& Co, stamp Oakley whiff of joy, liquid applique, sentiment from old stash of stamps from Archivers (hero arts?),

copics used: YG93/95 , E000/00/01, B37/34/12, N6/4/2/1, special Black.

following sketch55:

And for the Red Carpet Dress, I chose the one Cameron Diaz wore to the Oscars,
just beautiful :)

Please be sure to Vote for one players for the Priscilla Award! only once a year:)

Hugs, ~Jeni
