RS#148 and Mojo Monday #380


Hi everyone!!


I've got two cards to share with you.  First up is my entry for the sketch challenge over at the RetroSketches Blog.  This is the sketch to work with:


 
 
 
and this is what my card looks like:







I discovered this little guy in a bow with goodies that I mainly use for scrapbooking.  I bought it some time ago and thought I would use it on a kids card, but when I had a look at him today, I changed my mind and decided  to make a fun Valentine's card in stead
I computer generated the sentiment and printed it on vellum. 
I wasn't sure if the word 'dude' was referring to a guy or a girl (as I have in mind here) so I had a look around and found this explanation in the Urban Dictionary:
       1) n. a name for anyone (stereotypically used by male surfters/skaters but now accepted by any       race, sex, religion, and wealth) . 
So I think it's OK to use it here - let me know if you think 'dude' definitely refers to a male person only and I should rather change the sentiment. (will work out a way to do that without ruining my card!!!)




Next up is another card I made with today's sketch on the Mojo Monday.Blog.  (Apologies for saying in my previous post that it is a sketch by Julee - it's by Teresa Kline)
.

 
 
I have made a masculine card using the sketch:
 





Used dp by Heidi Swapp.
Image stamp from a local craft shop, Great Impressions.
Added some dry wall tape again and rounded it off with black plastic dots and rhinestones.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'.


That will be it for today - thanks for popping in!!

Keep well!!!
Kind regards
Petra

Wonderful cards Petra. Love your take on the Retro sketch. That image is awesome and love the 'road'. The old car looks perfect on the second card. The dry wall panel looks great.

Two great cards Petra. Love your fun Valentine card - so cute. The inclusion of the dry wall tape and the HW dp to the second card is amazing - love the colourway.

Hugs.

Whooops....this should have been part of my previous comment :)

Totally guy, guy, guy! Love the colors, love the image, and LOVE how the chevron/arrows draw the eye to the focal point! Once again, I'm in awe of your perfectly placed bits of bling!
