For all the details, a list of prizes from over 20 different companies and some fabulous samples using the Mojo 300 sketch head on over to the Mojo Monday blog.

I can't believe that there have been 300 Mojo Monday sketches!! I was always attracted to Julee's gorgeous visually beautiful sketches - the definitely got my mojo flowing when I was stuck in a rut! I think I started playing almost 5 years ago (say whaaa/?!) when there were around 40 sketches! I loved playing along with Julee, loved seeing and playing with all the amazing Verve stamps and was beyond FLOORED when sweet Julee asked me to join the Verve Design team - seriously squealed and then went into stunned silence of awe and blissful happiness!!! 


Thank you Julee for everything - so so so many congratulations to you on so so so much! On your amazing company, on your amazing gorgeous creations, on your beautiful family and the wonderful Verve family that you have nourished and inspired for so many wonderful years!! I absolutely adore you!! 


For my card today, I decided to use one of my favorite stamp sets Let It Shine!!! Julee asked us along time ago what we would like to see as a stamp sets - so I asked her for sunshine stamps!! yay! I love sunshine (hence my blog title :) - anything sunny just makes me happy :) and I simply loved her sunny creation in her Let it Shine stamp set - so I had to use this set to celebrate the 300th Mojo Monday Sketch! Here is my take on the sketch:


I used two of the sunny stamps to create the sun and then added a button to the center with a wee bit of twine :) and then created a mat with some vellum, added some little cut outs from the DP and a banner from the Pennant Banner Trim   - here is a closer peek:
Card Ingredients:
Paper: Simple Stories: I heart Summer
Inks: Memento Teal Zeal and Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Pennant Trim die from Verve Stamps, dimensionals, circle punch, Spellbinders nesties, vellum, corner rounder, buttons, twine, bling and liquid pearls

I just loved making this card and I just love this sentiment which I dedicate to Julee and the Mojo Makers - you guys are pure sunshine - thank you for always getting the Mojo Flowing!!! And I can't wait to see what all the Divas have created for the Inspiration Challenge today - please hop with me and check them out here:
