MDCC39 - Sketches and some ribbon Mojo...

Hello and welcome to the Thursday Card Challenge. We have TWO exciting challenge opportunities for you today, but first we'd love to showcase Robbie's card from last week's Pop Up challenge:

Thanks so much, Robbie, for sharing this fabulous card with us - lots of Pop Up action here!!

This is an exciting week - we are so honored to be sponsoring the Cafe Mojo Challenge blog! This is a super fun challenge blog with a lot of talented and creative ladies sharing ideas and techniques for everyone to try. Please go over and check out their blog - we know you'll love it! This week our store is sponsoring a ribbon challenge at Cafe Mojo!! The challenge is to use ribbon in a non-traditional way. Check out this sample from our own Maria:

Maria used paper from sei, a sentiment stamp from Daisy Bucket, and ribbon from May Arts. We hope you'll take some time to play the challenge - one lucky participant will win a $15 gift certificate to our store!!

Here at our own challenge blog, we're having a sketch challenge! This week we're using this sketch from Becky Flack's Page Maps:

We're huge Becky Fleck fans here... every month she produces a set of 12x12 scrapping sketches and one other set of sketches that varies per month - sometimes it's cards, but it can also be circle maps, half maps, tag maps... all kinds of possibilities! Check out our design team samples:

Cathy Weider - The Seaside Rose Cottage

Cathy used papers from Imaginisce and stamps from Serendipity.

Giovana Smith - A Place to Praise and Craft

Giovana used paper from sei, Melissa Frances, and Daisy Bucket, and a sentiment stamp from Daisy Bucket.

Wow, lovin the cards inspired by this sketch - we can't wait to see what you guys come up with! And, just to keep things fun, we'll also offer an additional $15 gift certificate to the Mothers and Daughters Creations store to the winner of this challenge! If you want to try for two certificates, that's OK but you do have to make two separate projects! Playing along is simple - just leave us a comment with a link to your blog or photo. If you upload to Splitcoast Stampers or Papercraft Planet, please use keyword MDCC39 for this sketch and MDCMojo for the ribbon challenge. If you are playing the ribbon challenge, you also need to leave a comment at Cafe Mojo to be eligible to win, so don't forget!!

Thanks so much for stopping in and we hope you enjoy your day!
