You need chocolate with that meal. Actually you need chocolate with every meal. It's a scientific fact. (I'm thinking about making a pot of soup, actually, and perhaps getting some French bread...and then definitely chocolate.)

10-13-2012, 01:39 PM
So who is planning to wait to send art after all of the upcoming athons? I'm trying to decide if I'm organized enough to do that or if I should just mail on Monday?

10-13-2012, 01:39 PM
Please not in the middle of the ocean Ducky, when they cry "men over board" I will not follow..... Had rabbit stew this evening and one of the bottles...hubby choose a red Burgundy wine. Had just one glass...rest is for the evening watching tele.
I have still a lot of sticker cards available....anyone????

10-13-2012, 01:49 PM
I went very Victorian today...





10-13-2012, 02:48 PM
Hey you artsy ladies! It looks like I did not have time to play again after the first days. Can't complain though, because I'm busy with something equally fun - a whole weekend's quilting workshop. Anyways, I was thinking I'd wait with mailing till after the other athons, if that's fine by all of you I've traded with. Please let me know if you wish to mail right away! And thanks for the trades & have fun on this last sticky day, you who still have time.

10-13-2012, 02:54 PM
I'd like to wait until the marathons are over unless a request to mail when sticker time is finished or any of the other marathons. I have gotten a request and I will be sending that one off Mon.

10-13-2012, 03:10 PM
Who knew cupcake liners could be so cool! Enjoying all the art that has been posted today. Sharlene - I am doing the same thing - waiting to mail.

10-13-2012, 04:01 PM
me too, I will wait to mail out because I am intending to play in all upcoming A-thons
Please PM me when you prefer your cards asap!

10-13-2012, 04:01 PM
CynthiaS - I love your Victorian Cards especially the ones with the Japanese Chin. I have two of these lovely little dogs - both black and white - both the most delightful of animals you could wish for.

10-13-2012, 04:03 PM
Thanks, Cathy. I've had those stickers waiting for a purpose for a while now.

10-13-2012, 04:12 PM

For me it is 55 minutes before closing time, and I had a great time made 29 cards

Your Tigers are playing better than my Yankees. (My cat, however, is a Tigers fan, too.)

Had to fight off a weather-related migraine, but I did finally get a few more cards done today:

http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/11746/small/1_2012_StAT_--_Could_We_Please_Have_A_Party.jpg http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/11746/small/1_2012_StAT_--_Bonsai.jpg http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/11746/small/1_2012_StAT_--_Autumn_Portrait.jpg http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/11746/small/1_2012_StAT_--__Explore_2.jpg

I had forgotten just how much fun this is --will have to see if I can make time for the other Athons coming up!

Just Ducky
10-14-2012, 12:08 AM
well HELLO Mouse, and so glad to have you at the party... did ya bring chocolate ???

NOW this baseball game tonight is makin' me mad...:mad: what is happening to my Tigers.... 11 ending... tied 4 /4

10-14-2012, 12:30 AM
This has been a great marathon! It's after midnight here but the party is still going for the rest of the US. I'll be checking in tomorrow to catch any last minute uploads and trades.

Mouse - I hope you are feeling better now.

10-14-2012, 12:36 AM
Baseball - i think that is huge in the States - like Rugby is in New Zealand. Our whole country shuts down when there is a rugby test. LOL

I had every intention of making lots of cards during this athon but never got around to it. I did however make a garden today and it looks really good so that has made me happy. KES I will be able to take photos and use them on my cards once everything grows a bit - I love the way you use your photos as backgrounds. I did make one chunky if anyone wants to swap.

I have however been checking in from time to time and admiring the postings. Just Ducky ad MouseThatRoars - good to see you are both playing on - great cards posted. And Ceejay - 48 cards - Wow girl you are smokin' :D

Catch you all again soon.

Just Ducky

Okay, I know it's at the end of the a-thon, but I DID get something in. Only 10-ish here. ;)

10-14-2012, 02:07 AM
This a-thon was so fun for me too...
As halloween is not very popular here... and that so far I couldn't find any playing cards of the right size to make ATCs, I am afraid not to be able to participate to the next a-thons... but I keep my eyes opened !!

10-14-2012, 02:54 AM
Ladies, most obliged :notworthy: I had super days with all of you. Hope to see all next week-end! Thanks KES for organizing the party!

10-14-2012, 06:47 AM
I am WAY behind in reading this thread as my husband has been using my computer to do his tax on (why he can't download the forms on his own computer is beyond me!?!?!)
I have stolen 5 mins to upload my last few cards - made hours ago
http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/3190/small/2_scan0030.jpg#21 http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/3190/small/2_scan0031.jpg#22 http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/3190/small/1_scan0032.jpg#23 http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/3190/small/1_scan0033.jpg#24 http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/3190/small/1_scan0034.jpg#25

I will be back to ask for final trades tomorrow (IF the husband is off my computer by then)

10-14-2012, 06:53 AM
Thanks to you all for having this fun athon. See you all next week in the autumn/halloween athon. I will keep the traded cards till the coming athons are finished - the apc one is the last one I think.

Wil Opio Oguta
10-14-2012, 09:35 AM
This is unbelievable. I could not make many cards for this athon, as I could not find my stickers. Well, this afternoon while I was looking for something else I found them!! Of course after the athon:embarrassed:. I never thought I would ask myself the question: can a person have too much stash?????

10-14-2012, 11:07 AM
A great big THANK YOU to all who have played and to Just Ducky, Donnacr, Cathy1 and CynthiaSillitoe for hosting during this marathon. Couldn't have done it without you! I had a lot of fun and enjoyed all of the art. :) :) :)

Wil - you'll be all set for next time.

Donnacr and HHC you posted lovely art to finish this off for us!

A lot of you posted a lot of cards - I'm wondering if Ceejay had the most? This marathon rocked and rolled with so much sticker glory!

I hope everyone has a great week and I'll see y'all in a few days at the Chunky-a-thon! Here is the link:


10-14-2012, 11:52 AM
Thank you all for hosting this great Sticker-a-thon. Had lots of fun and lots of trades.

10-14-2012, 01:10 PM
Just a reminder that when we combine multiple marathons in one envie an iTrader should be given for each marathon once the trades arrive. It will probable take a little whille since we have to wait between each iTrader point but that way everyone gets the right points. If anyone has any questions please ask.

Just Ducky
10-14-2012, 01:14 PM
this was fun... the weather was icky..wet and cold, but there was sunshine on my crafty table with all the great cards ya all was showing...
I know there are a few gals I didn't get to trade with...:sad: but I not done shopping..

I got lost on which envelopes are being mailed now or later... so please, if you get my cards in the next few days, don't fret, I understand you will be mailing after our other marathons... ( I will not be playing in the APC one )

10-14-2012, 05:16 PM
A big thanks to the hosts of the sticker-a-thon!! Everyone made great cards! I'll "see" you all for the Halloween a thon. Can't wait! :)

10-14-2012, 06:30 PM
I had lots of fun and more fun coming. I hope we have lots of players for out next marathon. I'm getting organized and that will take some doing, as always. I've resorted to putting lots of odds and ends in my daughters old toy box. I'm glad I haven't thrown it out. Someday I'll put all those odds and ends away. I probably have something in there that I have been looking for.

Thanks to KESagers, Just Ducky, Donnacr, Cathy1 and CynthiaSillitoe for hosting

10-14-2012, 08:29 PM

Of course after the athon:embarrassed:. I never thought I would ask myself the question: can a person have too much stash?????

LOL!:biglaugh::biglaugh:I found an envie full of stickers while clearing away the mess, plus a few loose ones while prepping for the SDCathon! :cry::cry: Has them tied up in a box now! Just hope I remember which box come time to play!!:wideeyed::confused:

10-14-2012, 10:01 PM

10-15-2012, 11:21 AM
Hey ... let me add my Thanks ... this was super fun for me ... 48 cards in what ... 4 days ??

Just Ducky
10-17-2012, 12:01 AM
well now... that was a fun power ball marathon... so great meeting some new gals and new trades... and happy hello's to all ya ol' gal players...

Just Ducky
10-17-2012, 12:08 AM
Suze, wondered what happened to you mid way through... no flaky days allowed during A-Thons my friend... but glad to know you's OK...

Blanche... I have written your name down on the (let Blanche know a A-Thon is coming)

now, I moving on over to check out Cathy1 Chunky thread... my personal goal is to get 10 done over the weekend.... man I am SOOooooo slow making these pretties...

10-17-2012, 03:07 PM
Cards just came in from Just Ducky and they are lovely! Lucky me!

10-17-2012, 05:57 PM
Y'all are too sweet! That's really the part I missed most was hanging out with you gals!!! :wubclub:

Unfortunatley I am going out of town Sunday, packing Sat, but can play some.... Does the A-Thon last through Monday? And I am going to see my Mom, so if I can pursuade her make cards with me on Monday, can she trade too?

10-17-2012, 07:00 PM
Yes Blanche, the athon runs into Monday and probably past monday LOL

10-17-2012, 07:09 PM
Cool, I am packing my art kit! I hope to involve Mom with making cards. I think it will be good for her (my Dad died in Aug). If 1) she makes cards and 2) wants to trade, I hope she can!

10-17-2012, 08:07 PM
I'm not an expert, but I think since people can offer their kids' art, you can post your mom's, right?
I hope arting will help to cheer your mom (and you) a bit. :wubclub:

Just Ducky
10-17-2012, 09:18 PM

10-19-2012, 01:16 PM
I was going to wait till the Halloween a-thon to mail mine but I'm just too busy and I'm not going to have time for it. I PM'ed everyone I traded with and got all my cards out in the mail today. Except Just Ducky's, her's was mailed earlier in the week so if you get it today don't think it teleported there lol. ^-^

11-06-2012, 09:05 PM

11-08-2012, 06:30 PM
Mine all went out yesterday
