Good mojo Monday morning and Happy Memorial Day. I hope you have your mojo on today. Actually, I hope you have it on for the week, there is a really special event going on called Stamp Out Alzheimer's. There are lots of free giveaways and tons of challenges to help such a worthy cause. It is only $5.00 and you can be helping others and join in the fun. Click on the link to the left and join today and thank you for your support!
Today's mojo sketch is doubling as one of the challenges in this week's Stampin' Out Alzheimer's (SOA) event. A small donation gets you access to this week-long virtual stamping event, which has all sorts of challenges and chances to win some fabulous prizes. All proceeds from this event will go directly to the Alzheimer's Association. The association provides valuable information, education and support for Alzheimer's patients and their families, as well as funding research to find a cure for this frightening disease. Jen Tapler founded the event in honor of her father, he has been rapidly progressing through the stages of Alzheimer's. So if you have a few dollars to spare, please particpate in this fundraiser. Not only can you win some fabulous prizes, but you can make a DIFFERENCE!
For those of you who wish to participate in the SOA event, all you have to do to be entered in the contest to win some Verve Stamps is also upload your sketch card over on the SOA site with the tag soamojo. There will be a challenge thread located in the Challenges/Announcements tab that will have all the details and the hostess can answer all your questions. For those of you who enjoy Julee sketches, she has designed another sketch for the SOA event. Just look for the Verve Stamps Sketch Challenge in the Card Challenges section.
For my card today I used one of the new Verve sets called Up, Up, and Away. I stamped the two long panels under the main image with a stamp from this set to make my own background dp. The other dp is by My Mind's Eye called bloom and grow. I paper pierced the balloon with a flower from that dp, luv how the balloon turned out girly, don't you? I added the little tag with orange twine. I hope you like it and can join us at the SOA ning to support such our stamping friends and the cause. Enjoy your Memorial Day Monday.
