Mojo Monday 177 - CONTEST

Welcome to another month of Mojo Monday!  It's the first Monday of the month and that means it's time to kick off our February 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? 

The Prizes: We'll have one winner for every 50 entries, up to a max of SEVEN 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 MOJO177. 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 {Click here for time conversion} on Sunday, February 13, so all entries need to be in before then. Winners will be announced on Wednesday, Febraury 16.

Julee's SampleThis week's sketch is a fun little layered design I had floating around in my head, but hadn't had a chance to try until this weekend. I ended up tweaking a few little details to balance my images, but the inspiration is there, so that's a-okay in my book! For more about my sample card, you can check it out on my blog, Poetic Artistry.

As always, we hope you'll play along with us and link up your cards using this week's sketch. Feel free to get creative and make the sketch work for you!

  1. What a great sketch!!! Thank you for the inspiration! Love the DT cards...

  2. I can hear my little creative gene saying "Hmmmm..." from his hide out (he is still in hiding after seeing the skewed panel on the Verve sketch this week!). Very intriguing sketch.

  3. Wow ladies, those are all amazing cards!

  4. I LOVE this sketch and it helped my mental state today by being able to make a card with a sunshine and gardening theme, despite the snow and gloomy day that looms outside my window.

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. Do you ever give us the criteria on which winners are based? I was under the impression for some reason that winners were selected by random draw, but after entering a few it was very apparent that random had nothing to do with it. So would it be possible to elaborate on judging criteria? Thanks!

  6. Just a quick note to let you know that a link to this post will be placed on CraftCrave today [08 Feb 02:00am GMT]. Thanks, Maria
