My Mojo Sketch

I've never made a sketch. I was a little worried I wouldn't be able to come up with one. That's why I love sketch site's like {MOJO MONDAY} so much, sketches take a lot of the planning work out of card making for me. However, I did come up with today's sketch for Mojo Turns 100 and I don't think I did to bad. Of course, Julee was the genius who drew up the sketch, check it out:
I pulled out a dusty Verve set, Floral Whimsy, for this card. I stamped the flowers and left them uncolored, I just added a rhinestone to the center of each of them. I like the look.
Make sure you go check out the {MOJO BLOG} and see what the other girls did with my sketch (I peeked and they ROCK!!!)
Oh, one more thing, I've had an extra Verve Plain Jane hanging out in my craft room for far to long now. I think it's time to give it away. If you would like to receive {Verve's Psalm 37:4 stamp} just leave me a comment telling me your favorite thing about fall and you will be entered to win. You have until Sunday, 23rd (the day of the last Mojo 100 sketch) to enter. I will post the winner with next weeks Mojo Monday card.
Recipe:
Stamps: Floral Whimsy, Meditations (verve)
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Polka Dots (mme)
Ink: Soft Suede, Close to Cocoa
Accesories: Soft Suede Polka Dot Ribbon, Button, Rhinestone Jewels, Embroidery Floss, Machine Stitching, Corner Rounder

Oh, I would love to win!

My favorite thing about fall... I love how fall, even though and end of the year season, feels like a fresh start. The air is crisper, the nights are cooler, and the colors are amazing. And Halloween ROCKS :)

Fall is such a perfect time. My birthday is in September so that makes me like fall... And I am naturally drawn to the colors of fall. One of my favorite colors is brown!
Wonderful Job with the MOJO sketch. You did a great job!

FALL, what a great time of year. I love the cooler temps, football games, and my kids starting school. (My youngest will be a Kinder. this year)
Would love to win and use the Psalm 37:4 stamp on some of my cards/scrapbooking. Thanks for the chance to win.

I LOVE fall!! I grew up all over New England and now my husband is in the military and we are stationed in California, so I desperately miss the New England Fall!! My favorite part is when you come over the top of a hill and everywhere you look is brilliant, vibrant colors everywhere!!! It takes your breath away and reminds you of the GLORY OF GOD!!!!

Love your blog and I really like this sketch! Thanks for the chance to win!

Super cute card! My favorite thing about fall is the whole month of October, love the changing trees, the cooler days and Halloween! My anniversary and DD b-day is both in October as well!!

Maria, I love to pick apples in the fall and then make apple crisp.

As an aside, I love following your blog and the Mojo Monday blog on Google Reader. I especially like your machine stitching on so many of your cards.

I already have that stamp so don't enter me in the drawing but I wanted to tell you that I just LOVE this card! It turned out so fabulous! :D I think you did a fantastic job on this sketch and I hope to be able to play later today!

By the way, I am so excited to finally meet you on Saturday! :D What time do you get done at the booth? If it's not too late, we could always try to get something to eat! I was really wanting to work it with you but since we start school Monday I decided to give myself a couple of days to do some last minute preparations!

I love your sketch Maria, it's gorgeous and I can't wait to play along!

My favorite thing about fall is the start of football! It's not too cold and I can grill out but I still have an excuse to curl up on the coach and veg. Go Pats!

Color, texture and that nip in the air are some of my favorite things about fall. Must say I'm not too thrilled about the coming fall as I'll be turning the big 50!

Oh I love your sketch! My favorite thing about fall is the apples. My parent's have an apple farm that we work all summer, and get the bounty of that work in the fall! Yippee.

Love your card! Thanks for a great sketch!!

Hmmm... my favourite thing about Fall is the mornings when I go outside and the smells are earthy, with the fog and dew still damp on the trees and ground, with the varying changing colors of the leaves on the trees and foilage, looking out over the lake. Beautiful time of year...
