Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #82

This week's Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge is actually a month long challenge!  First I am going to show you my creation for this week, and then move on to all the details.   I used an image from the Priscilla Styles store, "Christmas Ornaments".
The Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge has combined three sketches in this post that will last the WHOLE MONTH. We have supplied both the FANCY and CAS sketches for you. In the true celebration of crafting, you are more than welcome to enter as many cards as you like this month. You can even do a few of each if you want to. Just have fun, crank up those holiday tunes and get some Holiday cards created. In addition to entering your cards throughout the whole month, we would like to invite you to share with us some of your holiday cheer, memories and things that have made your holidays extra special throughout the years. Along with those wonderful cards you will be posting, we would love to see some holiday pictures (old or new). Share your yummiest holiday recipe, pictures of your pet with a bow in it's head, share your favorite holiday song, video or even a blast from the past with your dad dressed up as Santa. You name it, we want to see it!! You can leave your links in your comments or just add whatever you would like to share with us on your Midnight Madness blog posts.  In true holiday spirit, the prizes this month will be the gifts of giving from your heart and from all of us (DT and Players) and simply through the joy of sharing with each other.

I'd like to share one of my fondest childhood memories of Christmas.  When I was just a tot, my parents and I would always travel to my grandmother's house on Christmas eve.  I remember standing up on the pickup truck seat between both of my parents and we would sing Christmas songs at the top of our voices.  I'm sure I was too little to actually sing the correct words, but what an impression it made on me!  
Here are the December sketches... "YOUR PICK" Make it fancy, clean and simple, or somewhere in-between.  (I chose MMSC82 for my card.)


Feel free to enter multiple cards this month too!

Freshly Brewed Challenge - Winter, Christmas theme
Creative Belli Challenge - Red, Ribbon, Ric Rac(anything "R")
