Mojo Monday 68 - CONTEST

Hi everyone! Welcome to the first Mojo of 2009! If you're new to us, we just moved to this blog and have a fabulous new team of Mojo Makers working with the sketch each week. A new challenge is posted each Monday, and on the first Monday of each month we do a contest. That mean's it's CONTEST TIME!!! :)

How to enter: Use the sketch to create a project and then post a link to your creation in the Mr. Linky form at the bottom of this post. If you're linking to a blog, make sure it links directly to the post where we can view/comment on your creation, and not just to your general blog link.

Deadline: Monday, January 12 at Noon Mountain Time

Prize: This is a judged contest, so my two favorite entries will each win their choice of any Verve Stamps set (up to $24)!

The winners will be announced on Wednesday, January 14. Sound like fun? Well, let's get started! If you upload your cards to online galleries, please use keyword/tag Mojo68 (no space between Mojo and 68). As always, you can use any stamps or products your heart desires. Just have fun and show us how mojolicious you are!

And now for the fabulous Mojo Maker creations. Click the link below each picture to visit that designer's blog.
