Mojo Monday Week #15

Happy Monday everyone! Today's a big day for me. The six new Verve Visual photopolymer sets release today. Man, have I second guessed myself a thousand times on whether or not to go clear. But after many sleepless nights, and countless hours spent analyzing all the data and information I feel I've come to my decision using sound business sense and that it's the best thing for Verve's future. And the minute the samples of these clear sets reached my little stamping fingers, I knew I had made the right choice. They're the bomb, baby! So Verve is going clear! If you want to read a few of the reasons why (I promise I won't bore you with the exhaustive pro & con list I made), check out the new FAQ page at the Verve Store.

So I have a new Mojo Sketch for you. This week's sketch is based on this sample card I made earlier this week at Lila's. After I finished it I thought it was a little boring, so I added a few things to the sketch, but haven't had time to make another sample yet. Hope you like it. The card uses a sentiment from the new Family Phrases set, which I stamped four times (once in each corner) and then connected with dots to make a frame. The paper is from the Classical Garden Collection and Chocolate Delicious Desserts Collection. The giraffe is from the SU! In the Wild set and is stamped in Chocolate Chip, and his spots are covered in green bling. I sponged the edges of the panel and then distressed. To finish I added a touch of taffeta ribbon.

So, you know the drill. If you make a card, link me up in the comments of this post, so I can take a look at your mojolicious creations. If you upload to SCS, please use keyword MOJO15. I will select a winner to RAK from all of the entries submitted by 10PM Mountain Time (12 ET) on Sunday December 16. If you haven't already, be sure to vote for how you think the mojo winner should be decided each week. There's a poll on the sidebar.

Okay, be sure to check out the Verve Blog today for another one of my cards and the scoop on the sale going on at Verve. And then check back there all this week for new projects from the Design Team.

Julee, your sketch saved me again. I had colored several images of this but just couldn't settle on a card layout for her. This week's mojo monday layout works for her so here is my card for this week: http://thimblesbobbinspaperandink.blogspot.com/

Thanks so much for the inspiration!
