Mojo Monday 185 - 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 April 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 MOJO185. Our challenge is open to everyone, Verve stamps are NOT required to participate, and you can enter as many times as you want.

Deadline: The linky entry widget will close at 8PM MT {Click here for time conversion} on Sunday, April 10, so all entries need to be in before then. Winners will be announced on Wednesday, April 13.

Julee's SampleThis has been one of my favorite layouts recently, so I thought it would be perfect for this week's sketch! There's so much room for variation depending on the shapes and borders you choose. Just look at the completely unique samples from the design team! Whether your style is clean & graphic, cute & whimsical, shabby chic or something all your own, this sketch will kick start your mojo!

I went with a shabby chic feel for my sample card. For more about it, you can check it out on my blog, Poetic Artistry.

We hope you'll play along with us and link up your cards using this week's sketch. If you don't have a specific shape, feel free to substitute. The important thing is to have fun and get stampy!
