Let the party start!

There's a party goin' on right here

A celebration to last throughout the years

So bring your good times and your laughter too

We gonna celebrate your party with you!

§(_|_)(_~_)(__)(_~_)(_|_)(_~_)(_|_)(_~_)§


I have got my shoes !


And I have got my dress!

So let's DANCE!

We sent out the invitations, we teased you with our comments, and now it is time to “Get Down and Party” with the Midnight Madness girls. All week long the party is going on so keep checking back as we will be changing it up. We are going to be having so much fun and hope you will be joining us. So ladies, now is the time to put on those party dresses and dancing shoes!!! Now let’s get the party started. Turn up the volume and journey back with us to the “Disco Era”. You know you can’t sit still listening to these great hits of the 70”s. Who can forget “Saturday Night Fever” and John Travolta thrilling us with his dance moves? Let’s see some of your dance moves….don’t be shy!!!

For today's comment challenge describe to us what you are wearing to the party! Did you wear a themed outfit, a party dress, a costume. Tell us about your hairdo, your jewelry, your shoes. So, you don't know how to describe what you are wearing....how about showing us a picture. Dig out you favorite party dress picture and post it on your blog and leave us a link to go to view it. Maybe your favorite party dress is at the cleaners??? Well, no worries, go to any online store and leave us a link to the party dress you would like to be wearing. Places like "cyberplaze" have some great prom and party dresses for starters. Get creative as we will be picking the best dressed person at the party! Let's see what you got!

This is no ordinary week at the Midnight Madness.

Each day something different will be posted on the blog to keep the party going. To be eligible for the prizes, make sure you come back each day to see the new party theme and post another comment.

It will be an exciting week of activities and we need you to help with our celebration. You may not want to leave the party!!! We will be having door prizes from the comment section in addition to our regular drawings for each of the activities we post. The only requirement is that you have played "ONE" of our challenges in the past year and post your comment. That's it!! You’ll want to log onto the Midnight Madness Blog, grab your crafting supplies, and party with us each day for a chance to win.

If you are new, just join us for MMSC53!

WOW, That was a long post, but there is so much to say!

So much fun going on!

I went far beyond my comfortzone this week. Green is not really my color - but hten again, what is my color? Anyway, my mom bought me this beautiful green paper from Basic Grey, and just because she is so sweet that she buys me paper I had to make a card in her honour.

I think it turned out ok.


I used this beautiful stamp from Penny Black. I love their flowers. This one is from the Allegro-set.

I am quite proud of my self, because I have not used Distress ink at all on this card. I have used chalk on the egdes and to make the background paper. I stamped a "Happy Birthday" stamp from Stempelglede all over a white paper with Wersamark, and then I rubbed chalk over it.
Looks great heh?





Priscilla sent me this fab pearlswirl! Thank you so much Priscilla. It is actually larger than this, but I cut it so that I can use it on many cards ;o)

I am entering this card to the following challenges
Simon says - Birthday
Crafty Ann - Anything goes
Stamp Something - Birthday
Whoopsi Daisy - As you like it
Totally Gorjuss - Pink and Green
Crafty Cardmakers - Distressing


No put your partydress on and hit the floor!
It is dancingtime!
