Mojo Monday 159 - CONTEST

Happy October!!! It's Monday again and what better way to kick off the first Monday of the month, than with a CONTEST? {For those of you new to Mojo, we just play for fun most weeks, but the first sketch of every month is our Mojo Madness contest with prizes for our top picks.} Are you ready to play?  This week's sketch has kind of a clean and simple feel to it.  And feel free to substitute any kind of border for that wavy edge.

The Prizes: We'll have one winner for every 50 entries, up to a max of SIX winners!!! Winners will receive the Verve Stamps set of their choice.

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 linky widget at the bottom of this post.  If you upload to online galleries, please also use tag/keyword MOJO159. Our challenge is open to everyone, Verve stamps are NOT required to participate, and you can enter as many times as you want.  As always, have fun - if you don't have a particular shape, feel free to substitute and work with the supplies you have on hand.

Deadline: The linky entry widget will close at 8PM MT on Sunday, October 10, so all entries need to be in before then. Winners will be announced on Wednesday, October 13.

And if you're craving some more sketches this week, I've designed 5 brand new sketches to celebrate Verve's new release this Friday!  {Click here} to see the sketches and all the challenge details!

{Click the link at the bottom of this post for the entry form.  Please type your name or screen name in the Caption or Title field, then choose the link and photo you'd like to enter.  Please link directly to your specific blog post with your card in it, and not your general blog url.}

Note: If  you have trouble linking, try entering the link to your card, then choosing From File instead of From Web. Then just browse to where your picture is saved on your computer to get your thumbnail.

ETA:  The linky widget system is being upgraded right now, so there might be a few bumps and glitches for the next day or two.  If it isn't working when you're here, just check back a little later. Thanks!
