Announcing Sweet Stems and a Cool Mojo Gig

Stampin up sweet stems mojo 1

You know how nutso I am about doing sketch challenges.  Well, when Julee Tilman asked me to be a weekly mojo-licious stamper on her Mojo Monday Sketch Blog,
I couldn't resist.  Her sketches are balanced, interesting and fresh. 
I'll be posting my interpretations of Julee's weekly sketch challenges (using Stampin' Up!
products) each Monday.  Stay tuned and play along!
