08-12-2010, 05:24 PM
Winterchild, Friday the 13th has always been lucky.:)

08-12-2010, 05:27 PM
Thats great...certainly proving that way so far of today :) Although a light bulb thats been dead for about a year keeps suddenly coming on and going off!! Its a very wet day here and cold.... tempted to start the fire early!!!

08-12-2010, 08:30 PM
Have fun starting the Thon, winterchild. Light that fire and keep warm!

08-12-2010, 08:46 PM
Think I will GIna... made 3 cards so far and a chunky page for my halloween chunky :) Will scan when dry..... My aim is to finish my outstanding swaps which means 10 more cards of various kinds and then get some trades made!!!

08-12-2010, 09:25 PM
I'm scheduled to work a 12 hour shift tomorrow. But I may get canceled. If I do, I'll get to play tomorrow!!!

08-12-2010, 09:42 PM
I hope to be having a rather nice evening tomorrow..... which I will spend a while cooking and preparing for..... but I am gonna stamp too...right now tho I have some Rapunzels to draw....maybe I could stamp a couple of those!!!

08-12-2010, 10:06 PM
Yee-Haw! Count me in for at least part of the time. I'll have to go blow the dust off of my little ole collection of stamps. Papersaga laughed when she saw them...well she didn't really, but I could tell she wanted to! It is NOT how MANY stamps you have it is WHAT you do with them that counts! :P

Cat's Cradle
08-12-2010, 10:08 PM
I still have some great backgrounds from the last SAT. Time to get them out and make cards!

08-12-2010, 10:36 PM
Ok, all you stampers....I've always got some extra stamps laying around. (Although my stash is a little low right now because I was just in a big rubber swap) But all of you should let me know if there's something you're looking for...certain types of images.

Trecey can look in her Santa bag of rubber and see if I have something to send you!:jiggy:

Just Ducky

Great cards, Char and Evalila. Don't know if I will actually have time to participate this weekend because Stampaway is in progress here in Cincinnati. Had my early morning class already with Elaine Madrid (Fabulous Fiber Necklace-we did stamp a few embellishments for it) and have one late in the afternoon with MaryJo McGraw on Faux Tin Type Transfers. Between that and getting ready for a vacation in New Mexico, not sure I can actually find time to stamp!

Just Ducky
08-13-2010, 11:48 AM
keep them coming Evalila... and we will try to keep you company.

but I have to turn this toy off and go play with my stamps... I am not a multi-tasker
can't watch.. read... type and play too...

later gals... have fun...

08-13-2010, 12:18 PM
I have made some cards but will upload them later today.

08-13-2010, 01:33 PM
Hi! Still a couple hours to go here...trying to finish up some commitments first...then I can start stamping.

08-13-2010, 01:47 PM
I'm no good at the waiting part....LOL. I'm more productive in the morning, I know the minute it turns Noon I'll get pulled in 10 different directions. Maybe I could bolt my door shut!

08-13-2010, 10:10 PM
I just bought 13 items at the local Yankee Dollar. One of those was a set of "Funny Features" stamps! Mwa ha ha...

Not done any cards today; the table dropped a leg and it's currently in repair. Should be okay for tomorrow.

08-13-2010, 10:20 PM
ducky's # 1 card of the weekend... don't fight girls.... LOL....

Well, just keep in mind that stampers...do it repeatedly, and I can duplicate pretty much anything I post in my gallery. So don't hesitate to ask me for a trade even if I have something marked 'traded'. That goes for all of you!

08-13-2010, 10:31 PM
Ducky I LOVE your Friday the 13th cat card!!!

08-13-2010, 10:38 PM
Here are my 1st 3. This is fun but it's bedtime now!

Just Ducky
08-13-2010, 10:41 PM
thanks Theresa... sure will take you up on the offer... and wow.. my 13th kitty traded ...

and hello Jen... never late coming to a marathon weekend.. join in on will...

now I got a headache... trying to learn a new printer/scanner... and I don't take to retraining very well... hope I get it.. so I can show and tell tomorrow...:(

08-13-2010, 11:10 PM
Well Laura - at least you have a good reason for "only" getting a few cards done - I think 3 is a lot. I've only managed to get one more done in 4 hours and I don't have a soul here pestering me. I think my creativity bug must be at Evalila's or Chardonnay's or maybe RobbyGirl's otherwise I'm positive I would have made at least a dozen cards by now. :nah: I'm the slowest ATCer ever. I'll post my card in the morning - one part needs to dry before I squash it in the scanner.

08-13-2010, 11:18 PM
Well hello everyone! I've been spotting some of these cards in the gallery and thought I'd come find you all to see where the fun is!! I think I need to drag out some stamps too! We'll see what I can't come up with. Haven't done an A-thon in ages.

Just Ducky
08-13-2010, 11:33 PM
hello.... AKmamaof... pull out some stamps and join in... weather is hot and so are our stampers..... well except for Winterchild she is cold down there in New Zealand...

I craft... blow on that card and get it dry... we want show and tell... (only 1 card ??)

08-13-2010, 11:34 PM
Okay, I got one done for the night...

Sea nymph - AVAILABLE

Stamped background, collage image, "bubble" stick-on's and glitter

08-13-2010, 11:44 PM
Just peaking in to say "hi" to everyone...lotsa goodies being posted! I haven't done much with stamps...'cept collecting them for the most parts.

Anywhooo...with all the perties being posted for motivation....I've dragged my little collection out of hiding. Now to see if inspiration strikes! I'm not real fast at this, but may have a few to post before it's all said and done.

I'll be lurking about while I gather up my little goodies to work with. Have fun everyone!

08-13-2010, 11:53 PM
i am out of town visiting with my 85 year old mom. don't expect to make it home in time to join in on the fun. but what great cards posted so far. but sometimes you must sacrifice for family. no, really it is great getting to visit with my mom, she lives too far away. my younger sister gets her company all the time, so i don't want to miss my 1 week. hugs to all of you.

110F?!? That's terrible. We haven't had so much here but I think it's like living in an sauna. Ok, we have about 180F in a sauna but still...

It's ONLY 73F here now when it's raining a lot. And I'm enjoying this.

08-14-2010, 02:09 AM
Yay for rain. We were actually 80something today, and could be 90 tomorrow. Summer weather at last. :) I'm glad you're getting rain, sniisk, and am also glad I'm NOT getting 110 weather, jensaz.

well i am off to bed..night all

08-14-2010, 08:31 AM
Hey, Duckie, it looks like you are having a wonderful, creative day! :err: But I'd take your inky finger print any day (they call that finger stamping, right?) As long as there is no match in the FBI fingerprint database..... :laugh:

08-14-2010, 08:45 AM
Good night Lorraine!

08-14-2010, 08:50 AM
I'm observing all the great work...but totally absorbed in my quilting project which has a deadline. I can't have fabric and stamps and inks on the same table....that would be disaster!
But.....I'm still here!

08-14-2010, 09:23 AM
I was up at 5:30 this morning, very early for me but I couldn't wait to check on my SAT trades :jiggy: Beautiful cards over night Ladies! I'm eager to get started this morning but I think I'd better prepare some envelopes first!

08-14-2010, 09:29 AM
Looks like I missed a lot of great creative energy yesterday. Wonderful cards everyone! I'm caught up on the thread and looking forward to playing the rest of the weekend.:D

I almost forgot to tell the weirdest news of the day. Our postage costs decreased! It's cheaper to mail now :). I didn't know this is even possible nowadays...

08-14-2010, 10:19 AM
I'm moving to Finland! Ours is about to go up - again! And we may lose a day of delivery on top of it.

08-14-2010, 10:21 AM
Kristin, we are having still almost double costs compared to your costs. And only 4-5 day delivery per week. But I'm not used to get my mail so often and it's OK.

08-14-2010, 10:43 AM
Reduced mail costs, that's awesome Sanna! Hi Kristen, so glad to see you here!

Okay I got most my envelopes started. I'm off to make some breakfast and play a little tennis then hopefully back here to create, create, create.

08-14-2010, 11:07 AM
Good morning! I got to sleep in to almost 8:00 today... usually I'm off to work about now.

Fabulous art, peoples! I need to get busy!

Sanna, nice that there is a decrease in postage for you!

08-14-2010, 11:12 AM
Sniisk - then you definitely deserve a reduction!:D

Robby Girl - it's great to hear that your wrist is well enough to play a little tennis - what good news!

Morning HHC!

I'm off to scan a couple cards.

08-14-2010, 11:15 AM

08-14-2010, 12:20 PM
Just a quick note to everyone. Please, do not remove your posts from this thread (or from any a-thon thread). You can from the post remove everything you have written but leave the empty message. Most of us are trying to mark all traded cards as traded but it's very hard to find the posts if the numbers are chancing all the time. Thank you :).

08-14-2010, 12:30 PM
Ducky, I do have most of my art stuff organized but my granddaughter says it's messy, lol.

Taking a break from my first stamped/collaged card. I've been working on swap cards, so I haven't done too much for the SAT yet.

08-14-2010, 05:30 PM
Hi all, I'm back from errands. Mailed a swap, a bit of grocery shopping and bought a cake and some ice cream for my husbands birthday today. Who knew you couldn't buy white cake with chocolate frosting without special ordering? (not me apparently!) You can tell I buy cake about once every year or too...

Anyhoo... I have laundry halfway done, and am going to play with my stamps now!

P.S. You are all creating fabulous cards. I need to get busy!

I'm back to square 1. I totally screwed up the card I was working on. Not a critic issue--I screwed it up bad.

That's what happens when I try to create while holding a fussy, teething baby.

Aww catscradle, I feel for you. Maybe after baby's bedtime you can work on more cards.

08-14-2010, 07:37 PM
About chunkies - I'm working on one for Ducky and if my muse cooperates I'll finish it tomorrow but I also have some ideas left over from our summer chunky-a-thon that I'd like to get done before summer is over so hopefully I can get some chunkies made up tomorrow.

Morning/evening/night everyone. It took an hour to read PMs and most of this thread. I need to continue reading.

08-15-2010, 02:40 AM
Sorry Sanna, Was that me? I didn't realise. I removed it because i think my cards are a load of rubbish & i wasn't happy with them at all.
I will remember this in future & apologise to everyone for messing it up.

Sorry Pauline, I didn't mean to let anyone feel quilty. This was something we talked during an a-thon about a year ago, I think. And because we have so many new players coming all the time, I thought it's better say it here than just be quiet :).

And your cards are my favourites all the time!

08-15-2010, 02:45 AM
Hi Linda! I have been sitting here near by my computer all the morning. I haven't had a cup of anything either. I think I should have a breakfast... But this thread is too addicting.

08-15-2010, 02:56 AM
I took a late night nap and now I'm awake making art! Coffee sounds good :jiggy:

08-15-2010, 03:03 AM

08-15-2010, 03:38 AM
It's still too hot here. Or not hot but the moisture is about 90% Nice. I think my papers are wet...

And thanks for the tea :).

08-15-2010, 04:56 AM
I'm melting here again. I really liked the rainy yesterday.

And I still try to get the ink dry. More cards coming soon.

08-15-2010, 05:14 AM

08-15-2010, 01:42 PM
Morning all! Great cards. Helen, love those Halloween cards!! Ducky, love your western cards! Lots of pretty stuff.

I was hoping for some time to play today but I need a nap. The grandchildren spent the night last night and for my granddaughter who just turned 1, it was only her second time away from home overnight. She woke up at midnight for a diaper change and would not let me put her back down. So I brought her to bed with us, held her all night. I tried about evern half hour to put her down and she would cry. So I ended up holding her all night. She & my hubby got little sleep and I got none. My brain is fried. Hopefully after a nap I can do some stamping.

I still have this one for trade. Am going to make a different version of it as well I think. 51164 Traded

08-15-2010, 01:43 PM
Thanks Sanna! It only took my 4 hours to make - haha - I just couldn't get any inspiration for the longest time.

08-15-2010, 02:05 PM
I think all my SAT cards are now here in this thread. I don't finish the rest of them. I will stop playing soon and start to concentrate on very busy week at work.

Does someone still want to trade something with me? I have 12 available SAT cards + many earlier cards in my gallery.

My nearly-2 yr old is teething, my husband and I cleaned out the garage, and I just haven't been able to sit at the art desk since Friday night. I still have almost 6 hours to go, though, so maybe I'll squeeze one or 2 more out!

This one is still available.
