Mojo Monday 186

Thanks to everyone who played along in last week's Mojo Madness contest!   We're making our final selections from the 330+ entries you submitted and will be announcing our mojolicious picks from last week's contest on Wednesday, so be sure to check back then to see the winning cards!

But in the meantime, it's time for a new sketch! This week we're back to playing just for fun.  As always, feel free to substitute if you don't have a specific shape! 

To play along, just make a project using the provided sketch and upload it to your blog or online gallery. Then leave a link to your project using the linky widget at the bottom of this post.

There is no time limit - you can always play any week at any time, but I will close the linking form on Sunday night at 8:00pm (Mountain). That way there's no confusion which linky is the current one. If you upload to online galleries, please use keyword/tag MOJO186.

Julee's SampleTwine and ribbon are two of my all-time favorite embellishments. And this week's sketch, designed by Teresa Kline has a place for both! Whether your style is clean & graphic, cute & whimsical, shabby chic or something all your own, this sketch will kickstart 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!

  4. Thanks for the fabulous sketch and gorgeous samples! And for the inspiration you give, week after week, so that we can play along. Glad I got to this week!

  5. Sorry to enter twice. Mr. Linky was on the blinky!

  6. Thanks for the challenge. This is my first time taking part.

  7. This is my first time participating in a sketch also, and I have a card I made, but I can't post it. Do I have to have a blog to be able to participate?

  8. Hi Crystal. Welcome to Mojo Monday. No, you don't have to have a blog, but your card needs to be uploaded online somewhere. There are lots of free galleries like Splitcoaststampers, FlickR and photobucket that allow you to set up free accounts to upload your photos. Then you just link them here on the entry form so we can come visit them.

  9. Linky isn't working?
    My Card is here:

  10. Hi,

    This is my first time on this challenge blog and I can't seem to get the link to work.

    Here is my card

    I checked my file size and it shouldn't be too big, I'm sure it's me.

  11. Very fun!! My 2nd time to play. I hope this becomes a weekly ritual for me. Thanks for the challenge!


  12. Hello! This is my first time to play on this blog.
    I make a little mistake when I posted my work (№ 163) - I paste MOJO186 instead of my nickname. But I think that's OK, aren't I?
    And I would like to say you thank you for your sketches, they are wonderful!
