Mojo Monday Contest - Week 85

Hi everyone, and welcome to our first Mojo challenge of May! It's a new month, and that means it's CONTEST time! Sorry if you got an extra email about last week's mojo this morning, I'm not sure what happened with Feedblitz, but hopefully it's all okay now! Okay, on with the contest info...

The Prizes: We'll have one winner for every 50 entries, up to a max of SEVEN winners!!!

And what might you win? Well, that would be a Verve Stamps set of your choice (up to a $24 value).

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 Mr. Linky form at the bottom of this post. If you're linking to a blog, please be sure to link directly to the specific post where we can view your project, and not just to your blog. That way if it takes a few days for us to get to your card, we don't have to hunt around to find your card. If you upload to online galleries, please also use tag/keyword MOJO85.

Deadline: The Mr. Linky form will close at 8PM MT on Sunday, May 10 so all entries need to be in before then. Winners will be announced on Wednesday May 12.

I had a crazy weekend and unfortunately haven't had time to get my sample card done {ETA: It's finally done and added to the post! Hooray!}, but as usual, the Mojo Makers have made some knock-out cards to inspire you this week:

Mr. Linky Note: Please be sure to link directly to the url where we can view/comment on your creation. If you're linking to a blog, to get the full link for your post just click the title of the post you want to link to and copy and paste the url in the address bar into the Mr. Linky form. Your link should start with http:// and if you're using Blogger and have done the link correctly, it should end in .html

HAVE FUN!



Links are closed for this week. If you've played along after the deadline, please leave the url in a comment.
Thanks for playing!

    Another beautiful sketch. Thank you. I had every intention of using some of my new Verve stamps on this card when my husband gave me one of his photographs to use--if I wanted to--to make a card. Of course, I wanted to. It was perfect for this sketch. I did use a Verve sentiment. I love Verve!!!
