Mojo Monday #373 & CTS#101

Hi everyone!!!

Here to post my entries for two challenges.  First up is my card for the current sketch challenge over at the Mojo Monday Blog.  It's Tall & Skinny week and this is Julee's sketch:

This is the card I have made following the sketch:

I've used a piece of dp by Teresa Collins.
Daisy stamp by Verve.
Added some scorelines to my diagonal strip.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'.
Black plastic dots and a twine bow to finish it off.

And look at the little gecko inspecting my card. (righthand top corner) He was so quick I only caught part of him in the photo.  We've got lots of them here and they are so cute!!!!!

Next up is my card for challenge #101 over at the CAS(E) this Sketch Blog.
This is the sketch:

and a card I have made for my husband, following the sketch:


The little anchor stamp is part of a small set of nautical stamps by Prima Marketing.  I have heat embossed the anchor. 
I've computer generated the sentiment and printed it on vellum.  The sentiment is in Afrikaans and says:' You are my strong anchor, thank you'.
Added some twine and black plastic dots and it was done.

We are celebrating our 21th anniversary on Thursday and for all of those years my husband  has been my strong anchor and I want to thank him for that on Thursday.   Hope he will like his card!!!!

Thank you so much for popping and have a great start to your week!!!!

Keep well!!
Kind regards

Big Happy Anniversary to you & your DH. How blessed you have been to have found each other to make this life's journey together. I'm loving both of these cards..done with your usual flair for great design. I especially like the scoring details on the way you've slanted the lines. Cute little gecko has wonderful taste! He knows what he likes! TFS & Hugs.

Happy anniversary! May you and your husband have many more blessed years together! LOL...that little gecko is so adorable...even he thinks your card is gorgeous and he's wanting a closer look! LOVE your take on the mojo sketch and the masculine card is so classy with the clean design! You've convinced me to use more navy and yellow it!

Fantastic masculine card Petra. Love the anchor and the thread around it. The vellum looks great. It's a nice over-lay. Perfect card for your hubby. If I forget it tomorrow... Happy Anniversary! We are celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow so it will be busy.

Silly me... didn't pay attention to the first card. Love the yellow flowers with the black edge. That DP is super cool with the tags. I also like the angled panel! Well done lady!
