Midnight Madness Sketch Time


WOW...I just came across this Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge Blog yesterday and linked the badge up here in my sidebar and in my "Candy Bar" over there, but didn't realize that TONIGHT IS THE DEADLINE for last week's sketch! Aaaack! So, I hurried and made a sketch card with one of the super cute Anyas that a friend stamped and sent me. I made it very sparkly, although with it this late it was hard to capture all that in the photo :( So here's a close up:

I used my Martha Stewart snowflake punch and rubbed two-way glue on them and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds on top. After watercoloring my Anya, I did the same with her muff, and furry parts on her outfit, cause y'all know that girls LOVE sparkly things...even girls with greying hair! LOL (eh-em... no, I did not have my friend in mind when making this, although it prolly could be if we could all see her natural color! ROTFL - Just kidding!!) Besides, I think greying hair is beautiful! I'm a redhead so I've been told mine will turn white. Huh...I wouldn't know! Teeheee...OH ALRIGHT ALREADY!! I've pulled a few I spose. HEY, how did I even get on this subject?!! sheesh!

And here is my full card:

You can see the sketch and read all about the delicious CANDY involved over <HERE> but you have to get it entered by MIDNIGHT tonight!! Good luck everyone!

EDITED TO ADD: Just found out that this particular sketch is not due until midnight NEXT TUESDAY! lol - so knock yourself out!

What, grey hair, me??? At my tender age of 29? Never!!! Well, at least not after Saturday when I get my hair cut and colored. LOL!

Adorable card, Kristine! You rock those Anyas same as everything else you do. And I always LOVE sparkly stuff!

Yes, Midnight Madness is quite a popular new challenge blog. Someone is going to be head over heals when they win that prize! If it's not me, I hope it's you!!!

Love ya,

Very cute!!!! I love the sparkle and I wasn't thinking she was going grey when I saw her--she's just super cool and kinda punk :-)

Hi girl,

I LOVE this card, the colour combo is stunning and so is your colouring! Just gorgeous.

To let you in on a little secret, I have had greying hair since I was 16 years old, I have to colour my hair very often. If I haven't done it for a while and go to the hairdresser they are in SHOCK to see a 24 year old that has so many grey hairs, they've never seen anything like it they said. And I'm like, thanks girls, way to lift my spirits! LOL. Ah well, they say stress turns your hair grey right? God knows I've had my share of that in my life.
Oh my I'm just going on and on, lol!! Sorry I'm going to stop 'talking' now, you'd think I'd be a real chatterbox in real life, but IRL I'm real shy, lol.

The goodies you've sent my girls still haven't arrived. I'm still hoping they will get here (fingers crossed)xx

I was wondering why I didn't get any updates from you blog, turns out I still wasn't a follower, duhhh... lol! Going to fix that now!

Have a wonderful day honey,

Big Hugs, Naoual

Donna said...

wow! what a sweet card, I totally adore the colors & your coloring-great layout too!

Donna said...

oh and btw, I am letting my grey hair grow out (did you know it's just because over time you lose the pigment in your hair follicles?) I have it kind of sporadically on the top & sides but it totally blends in. DH loves it
