Mojo Monday Turns 300!!


Happy Canada Day to all the Canadians out there and happy 17th anniversary to my wonderful hubby - love you!

While I'm on a celebratory track, HUGE congratulations are in order for Julee, owner and creator of Verve Stamps and Mojo Monday as today we are celebrating  Mojo Monday's 300th sketch challenge!!  Julee has been providing cyber world with Mojo Monday sketches for almost six years.  I remember when she first started the Mojo Monday blog, and I'm honored to be able to celebrate this milestone with her :)

If you know anything about Julee, you know she celebrates milestones with style, and this time is no different.  There will be thirty fabulous paper crafting prizes available from over 20 different companies!  All you need to do is create a new card using this week's sketch, and then link it up to the Linky Tools over on the Mojo Monday blog.  In addition, enter gift code 300MOJO and you will save 20% off your Verve Stamps order July 1 - 7th!

For my card, I used MME's Mother's Love papers and one of my favorite Verve flower sets,  Dream Big, along with the coordinating Scalloped Flowers and Dreamy Leaves die sets.  Hmmm, hmmmm, love me some Verve flowers :)   Of course, where there are flowers there has to be a butterfly wink, wink.  I finished things off with the birthday sentiment from Joyfu Blooms.

I also playing along with Stacey's Birthday Linky Party over on her blog.  Just create a birthday card, add it to the Linky Tool on her post, and you are eligible to win some great prizes!

You can check out all the challenge details over on the Mojo Monday blog and also get a chance to view all the wonderful Mojo Makers samples - as well as some guest designer's samples!  Should you wish more details on the Mojo Maker's cards, you can also visit their individual blogs noted below.


We are officially on summer mode here, weather included!! Yikes!! It is hot here (30C with humidex - ugh!!) and that is a bit hotter than normal for us, so I think a trip to the beach may be in order as well as a trip to the mall so we can  cool off in the air conditioning! 

Look forward to seeing all your wonderful creations as we celebrate Mojo Monday's milestone with style!
