I was amazed when I read the Mojo Monday Blog this morning.  This is their 400th sketch challenge.  I was amazed to learn that they (Verve) have been providing these sketches every Monday since 2007.  The sketch for this challenge was the very first sketch published.

Because I am so appreciative of having a sketch to hone in on my creative juices every Monday, I created a thank you card.  For this challenge, I used the new catalog Hostess set called "A Whole Lot of Lovely".

I used the color combo of Basic Gray and Watermelon Wonder - and the new Designer Series Paper Stack in the Neutrals (Basic Gray).  I love this new paper!  The writing is so sweet.

I added the small banners and flower to fill up some space.  I thought it was a nice addition and balanced the card.

Here is the Mojo Monday #400 sketch that inspired my card:

Tomorrow is the day the new catalog goes live!  For tomorrow only, you can order from both the old and new catalogs and still get old catalog prices and old catalog hostess rewards.

Also, now is the time to join Stampin' Up!  Each new Demonstrator gets two extra stamps sets from the new catalog, in addition to their starter kit,  just for joining. Amazing!  Call me for the details or read the details on my Stampin' Up! website on June 2.  Would love to have you on my team!

By the way, there is a design team call on the Mojo Blog as well...wouldn't it be awesome to receive such an honor.  Shy person that I am (lol), I'm going for it.

Have a wonderful week and do something creative!



  1. A beautiful entry Sandy! Just lovely

  2. So lovely! The grey and watermelon look like they're just made for each other. I'm extremely shy, as well, so I'm also pretty amazed that I've been doing this for 400 sketches! :) Thanks for all the wonderful cards you've made with the sketches. I always enjoy coming to see what you've made.
