Mojo Monday 76 - CONTEST

Hi everyone, and welcome to our first Mojo challenge of March! It's a new month, and that means it's CONTEST time! This month we're going to play things a little differently as we lead up to the Verve Stamps release on Sunday night. What does that mean for you? More chances to win!!!

The mojo entries have just skyrocketed since we moved to our own blog, and little ole me can't keep up with all the entries anymore, especially with a big release just around the corner! :) So I've enlisted the fabulous Mojo Makers to help judge this week's contest. Each member of the Mojo DT will be picking a winner, and we'll have one winner for every 50 entries, up to a max of SEVEN winners!!!

And what might you win? Well, that would be one Verve Stamps set of your choice (up to a $24 value). And since we have 8 new sets releasing on Sunday, you'll have even more Verve-aliciousness to choose from! To see sneak peeks of the new sets, be sure to check out the Verve Blog all this week.

How to play: Just upload a project using this week's sketch to your online blog or gallery. Then leave a link to your project in the Mr. Linky form at the bottom of this post. If you're linking to a blog, please be sure to link directly to the specific post where we can view your project, and not just to your blog. That way if it takes a few days for us to get to your card, we don't have to hunt around to find your card. If you upload to online galleries, please also use tag/keyword MOJO76.

Deadline: The Mr. Linky form will close at 8PM MT on Sunday, March 8, so all entries need to be in before then. Winners will be announced on Tuesday March 10, sometime in the afternoon.


And now for some inspiration from the Mojo Makers:
