Mojo Monday 198 - CONTEST

Welcome to another month of Mojo Monday!  And Happy 4th of July to all of our American friends.  In honor of the holiday, our sketch this week is all decked out in patriotic colors.  And since it's the first Monday of the month it's time to kick off our July 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.  We're releasing new stamps this Friday night, July 8, so there will be even more sets to choose from!

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 MOJO198. 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, July 10, so all entries need to be in before then. Winners will be announced on Wednesday, July 13.
