Today is the first challenge at Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge that I am doing as the Guest Diva for the month of March.(MMSC #43) You can find the sketch on the website, and they are now offering two sketches, fancy, or clean and simple, and it's entirely up to you. Don't you just love having choices!

The MMSC43 weekly Bonus Sponsor is Sunshine and Giggles. They offer digi images of children. They have supplied the design team with some of their images and we have used them this week on our cards for challenge # 43. The bonus prize is 3 digital images-winner's choice from Sunshine and Giggles along with some other wonderful goodies you can see on the MM site.

Our March Monthly sponsor is Priscillastyles Store. This is a brand new online store just opened by Priscilla Heaton, who is the site owner of the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. She is adding new items all the time. So you should sign up to follow her so you can watch for new items. There are some fun gadgets, digi images and her wonderful envelope templates. I have used the 6x6 envelope with my card entry today and it is the best. It is quick to put together and the best part, your highly embellished card just slips right in and no bumps or lumps.

So, as the monthly sponsor, Priscilla has offered up some wonderful items for prizes. You must go to both the store and the MM site to see for yourself. A Pocket organizer, the 6x6 envelope kit, an adorable pink ribbon chest and a drink holder!

For my card, I have used an image from Sunshine and Giggles. Ah, first love. If you're old enough to remember that first date to get ice cream (and hold hands) your lucky, it was such an innocent time. I paper pieced the clothes and table cloth and colored the rest of the image with Copics. I restamped the ice cream and his right arm and popped them up. The background paper is by Graphics 45. The daisies and pearl hearts are by K & Company. The red heart cluster is from Michaels Reflection brand. I added red and white corners and red hearts. The easel card opens to "He loves me, he loves me not, with a couple of daisies and some loose petals.
That's it, hope you like it, very nostalgic for me! You have to check out what the design team gals did with their digi's from Sunshine and Giggles.

Have a great Tuesday. Hope you can join in the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge this week and please tell them "Sue" sent you! Thanks for stopping by. Until later..........

Sue, this is a great creation for your first challenge for your Guest Diva stint! I remember those dates at the "malt" shop -- or how about a cherry coke? This is a delightful card --- and neat what you used to hold the easel display open (and matching envy so dear). I'll try to get by and play with you this week.
