Mojo Monday 189 - CONTEST

Welcome to another month of Mojo Monday!  Before I get to the sketch, we're excited to announce the addition of a new Mojo Maker to our team...  Carole Burrage!

If you haven't seen Carole's work before, you're in for a real treat!  She has a fresh, funky style, with a no-holds barred approach to color which combines for stylishly eye catching and exciting creations.  Not to mention this gal can spin a fabulously entertaining tale about it all - her blog is just as fun to read as it is to look at it!  I just know she's going to be coloring our Mojo world with inspiration each week.  So be sure to stop by her blog and give her a warm Mojo welcome!

Okay... on with the business of getting sketchy!  It's the first Monday of the month and that means it's time to kick off our May  MOJO MADNESS 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 MOJO189. Our challenge is open to everyone, Verve stamps are NOT required to participate, and you can enter as many times as you want.  If you don't have a particular shape, feel free to substitute.

Deadline: The linky entry widget will close at 8PM MT {Click here for time conversion} on Sunday, May 8, so all entries need to be in before then. Winners will be announced on Wednesday, May 11.
