FMS#230 & Mojo Monday #442



Hi everyone!!!!

I had a very busy week last week, but tomorrow the boys are back at school so I will hopefully have more time to spend at the computer and at my craft table!!!!!  I did have a spare hour or two last week to make a card for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge and this morning I made a card for contest week over at the Mojo Monday Blog!!!!!
                                                                                                                                       


                                  
The card for FMS:
 


The piece of patterned paper is from Kaisercraft and I've got a vellum overlay.
Gerbera die from MFT.  Leaves stamp and die from PTI.
I love my new glitter paper!!!




And the Mojo Monday card:



Patterned papers from MME and Fabscraps.
Gerbera and flourish dies from MFT.
Chevrons cut with Tim Holtz die.



I finished the throw I was knitting, over the weekend!!!!  I will share some photo's as soon as I have done all the tassels!!!!  I am also busy with a photography course for manual photography and I will share some of those photo's too!!!!


The next episode of Survivor, Blood vs Water will be starting in an hours' time and we will be watching that - we are Survivor fans!!!! 


Till next time!!!

O Petra....your work is glorious! These cards are gorgeous......so glad you shared one with us at FMS!

Happy Dance said...

Two beauties, Petra! Clean, crisp, and full of interest. Love the blooms you've used on both of them, and the black really draws the eye into your design. I think you've got a couple of winners here. Absolutely striking. Love these!! Can't wait to see the photos of your throw. My mother, bless her heart, gave up on teaching me how to knit; I just couldn't get the hang of it, lol! So I'll admire your talent! Bev

Welcome back Petra my dear friend! I missed you! You really do like to keep busy, don't you? Photography now too (I used to do a lot of photography back in the days of 35mm film, I've even photographed weddings), now all those thousands of pounds worth of camera gear is worth nothing - thanks to digital, nobody wants it - very sad when that happens . . . but I digress! fabulous cards as ever from you my friend!! I love your talent for CAS layering!! Have a wonderful week and I can't wait to see your photographs! Hazel xx

Beautiful cards, Petra! I especially like the way your tag in the top card has been layered with other papers and "see thru" elements! Beautiful! Will you do another craft fair this year? hugs, de

Vicki Dutcher said...

Awesome couple of cards -- love that mojo one the best!

Monika/Buzsy said...

Lovely cards Petra. Love the pretty layered flower as the focal point. Your layering is amazing as usual. I also love the somewhat black & white look... very classy. Fantastic designs.

Darnell J Knauss said...

These are both clean and crisp and designed perfectly, Petra! You leave us all in awe every time!! Enjoy your day!! Hugs, Darnell

Evelyn S. said...

These are simply amazing cards! They are so detailed, so classy, so beautiful.

Pat said...

Two more great sketch interpretations Petra. Those pretty Gerberas look wonderful on both and the use of the twine on the first and that lovely flourish on the second, and some interesting patterned papers. I also love that vellum and the glitter paper too, and your enamel dots always look so elegant. x

Martha said...

OH, Petra, what beautiful cards.
Fabulous take on the sketches.

Shawna Standish said...

When I first saw you put these two sketches together I was a bit perplexed. Until I took another look and then I thought GENIUS! Minus a few details these sketches are very similar. Love this card Petra. So full of detail without being too busy.. you are the master..

Wanda Cullen said...

You are one busy, talented lady! Anxious to see your finished throw, but in the meantime, I'll ohh and ahh at your gorgeous cards! Thanks for joining us at Mojo Monday!

Anita in France said...

A duo of deliciousness, Petra ... such gorgeous layering ... the vellum and shimmer are fabulous ... I especially love that herringbone die cut detail ... graphic and delicate at the same time! Hugs, Anita :)

MaryH said...

So beautiful in each card, and love the way you've changed up the design, keeping to the similar shades of colors. Like the swirling leaves on #1, and especially the way you've used the vellum. The diagonal shape of the 'tiles' 'in the die embellie works to add even more interest & texture. You have multiple layers on each pretty card, yet still convey such a feeling of airiness & light. TFS & Hugs

Jen Mitchell said...

Your cards are always such a joy to see Petra! Each layer has a story to tell and your eye for design is amazing. I love to pop on over here to be amazed at your creativity!

Lindsey said...

Gorgeous cards! Can't wait to see your throw, too.

JoAnn said...

Beautiful cards Peta. Love the colors and design of each one. Love the vellum overlay on the tag on your first card.

Mona Pendleton said...

Beautiful cards Petra! Love the blossoms! Can't wait to see your throw!

I Card Everyone said...

Gorgeous, Petra!!! You take a strand of twine and turn it into a flourish ... and a flourish and turn it into the final Ta Da!!! Every detail and element is a charm!
