Good night Marilou! Sleep well!


My muse is seriously being stubborn today! So I figure a short change of scene might help. There's a friend hanging in this end of town together, so we're going to go out and grab some dinner. In the meantime, I leave you V:dog: hands! May the force be with you all!!!!!

See ya in a few!

Ha! I had already washed it off. He asked if that was my feet, then boobs (go figure) XD. He thought it was cute and was happy that I had so much fun with it.

D - he drinks a TON of Kool-Aid and is picky about the flavors. He just couldn't find it at the store for whatever reason. XD

V-:dog: he did the laundry and the shoveling this week, so I can't complain too much. :)

Watching a movie with him and Dot ATM, so I'm taking a little break. Catch you ladies in a bit!

Cute sphinx cats! There's this meme some of my friends have been sharing on facebook of a particularly wrinkly one-the caption is "What? You think you look better than me naked?"

velcrodog
02-01-2014, 07:17 PM
for all those dozing off to sleep...


Sleep, baby, sleep
Your father tends the sheep
Your mother shakes the dreamland tree
And from it fall sweet dreams for thee
Sleep, baby, sleep
Sleep, baby, sleep


Sleep, baby, sleep
Our cottage vale is deep
The little lamb is on the green
With snowy fleece so soft and clean
Sleep, baby, sleep
Sleep, baby, sleep

Did someone say Cabana boys? :err:

velcrodog
02-01-2014, 07:59 PM
Okay! That's what I am talking about.... now Day 3 officially starts in 2 minutes BUT, as the Imperial dog.... I am extending naked day for the rest of the athon.... Not that we are throwing out the groundhog day theme, but you can be naked or draw naked and especially cabana boys and all that for the duration!!!!!!!!

FlyingPhoenix
02-01-2014, 08:01 PM
Yep. Twin-kie and I have command over them. ;) As it was decided in the pre-hype for the Athon. :D

...maybe later. Might take a snooze as I didn't sleep much last night, and I'm a little beat.

velcrodog
02-01-2014, 08:04 PM
:biglaugh:

The official start of DAY 3 of the athon.
Only 24 hours to go.
Nakedness will continue, to good of a theme to throw out!
AND we haven't seen cabana boys yet!
(but shhhh! Don't tell Maria this! and she will never think to look back and see what I wrote!!!!)

Day 3 Program: Groundhog Day!
(unless of course you are in Alaska, then Happy Marmot Day!)
(Itís the day that keeps repeating itself! Mwahahahaha....now we have you...youíll never be free of this athon!)

So how Groundhog Day works, for those that aren't familiar, when the groundhog comes out of his hole, if he doesnít see his shadow we have early spring. If the does see his shadow (and is frightened back into his hole) we have 6 more weeks of winter!

Itís the Battle of the Groundhogs! Punxsutawney Phil vs Wiarton Willie! Which groundhog will predict correctly? Will they both predict the same outcome? We will keep you updated!
http://www.groundhog.org/
http://www.visitwiarton.ca/profile/w...-festival/959/

Donít forget to nab some Groundhog Snarkies as they only come out once a year!

jonquil.....great snarkies!

Dehh68.... the pick up lines cracked me up! Especially when recited by a statue. Come to think of it, he could have said "Honey, you make me hard"...Oh my, did I just say that??!

You want a title!


Mayaquilt your title shall be ....Mayaquilt, Queen of VelcroCats, and all that is Quilt or Fabric & Grand Master of the Dutch orders of knighthoods: the Order of Orange-Nassau, the Order of the Netherlands Lion, & the Military William Order

GREAT ART EVERYONE.
Now I have a question. I don't know if anyone can answer it or not.
My laptop it doesn't show subscribed on the menu bar on top. When I used the desk top it has everything across the top. also when I clip on a person name and want to send a message the drop down doesn't show either. Any idea anyone.

Fabulous cards have shown up since I ate supper!

dsign49 - wild guess - might be your browser with an hinky update that didn't patch in properly. Next time you update it might fix itself or if you have a recent restore point you can always do that but you will lose everything you have done since then. (You have completely shut down and restarted your computer and the problem persists? It needs to be a cold start - like let your computer completely shut down - not a restart. Some times just turning it off and then turning it on again does a world of good.) Fingers crossed it will fix itself.

Kim & Josie, Your ATC, stand-ups (:biglaugh:) are completed and in your files!

I haven't added any of the cards I have made lately to the gallery... I am going to try to do some of that now.... all my cards are posted on the thread, but i still have 6 ATCs and 2 tags that I haven't had time to add to the thread yet!!!

Oh V-:dog:do you think I'm not psychic? :biglaugh: I think extending arting naked day is a grand idea! It's official! Since Day3 continues forever, in a loop, arting will be naked until further notice! :biglaugh:

Great cards posted while I was gone! I have to go back and leave rep, but I've left so many the system isn't allowing me to leave more. I need to go find some more unsuspecting You RocK recipients elsewhere I first!

BekaH
02-01-2014, 11:04 PM
LOL :P I have NO clue how you're picking V, and as much as I"m posting I can't believe I haven't landed on a number... I think I've done pretty well this a-thon, arting and keeping up with the thread, this being my first! :D

Anyways, love Vicky's Groundhog Day card, and Mousie's, well.. Mousie cards!

Here is my third day challenge Maria and V. Hope you like my cutie, and he IS available for trade... I'm also working on my third card now, while the second is drying. So while I probably won't have AS much art to add today, I will have SOME.

(BTW, if no one has noticed, all three of my challenge cards have been hand drawn ;) )

Miss M
02-01-2014, 11:05 PM
You're sending me an arch AGAIN? Nope, you can't "arch" your way out of punishment! You've been a bad doggie while I was out! :biglaugh: (actually while I was in too) Getting tattooed and all! You're supposed to be setting a good example for this lot!


And you're right, it can't possibly be rigged! How I know, as Empress I can forsee the future and influence the outcome of your choices! mwahahahahaha!

And you are ordered to hand out more arches based on your secret (but not secret to me, I'm psychic remember!) number system! ;)

And a little while ago V:dog: was telling me all about how she dances naked in her backyard. And that she could see the space shuttle launch from her backyard. So she would dance naked in her backyard at the launch of every space shuttle! (heehee, she's doesn't know I stole this photo...shhhhh!)

LOVE your Groundhogs, Donnacr.
Can't wait for your Groundhog that moves.

Here the weather channel is tracking the top 11 (yes ELEVEN) groundhog predictors across the U.S. Each one has its own history, tracking record of accurate predictions, and best of all, their own photo ops.

I like #5 - Chattanooga Chuck (Chattanooga, TN), who even has his own weather map on the weather channel, although Sir Walter Wally is so adorable

Marilou, even though I waited until I got married (I was a good little girl!)...I had one of the dirtiest minds out of my groups of friends in college, and I was deemed the "Queen of Innuendo".

That, mixed with the "Naked" Theme being extended another day IN ADDITION to being Charged (coerced?) into working with Cabana boys....my mind is pretty in the gutter this morning.

Took this picture where we used to live - momma had babies - 2 to be exact. I've been working on this during the marathon and it's taken a bit of work - the original photo is not that great so I turned it into a sort of impressionist painting. Prints are available.

ok girls, this is it for me. I still have some cards in my gallery. Maybe a good idea to check if I forgot to remove one you wanted to trade for.
Will check in later this evening, but I will cuddle up in front of the tele with a good glass of french chardonnay.

see what happens when the SHIT hits the FAN... to start with I am now have 233 posts to read just to catch up...
this morning ??? bad scene... walking barefoot tho kitchen... WET feet in front of stove.. never a good thing... pulled the stove away from wall... lots more water... removed
bottom cupboard... lots and lots of water...
so the hunt was on ... finally found there is way too much ice build up on roof.. so it was backed up somehow and made its way into inside the kitchen wall and coming out at the floor..
Mel and I worked for several hours trying to undam the ice jam... finally we have cleared that part of roof and water is now done pouring into the wall...
big, really big repairs coming in the spring.. not sure how much real damage is done...
but it's not going to be cheap I am sure...

ok.. so I have vented my worries of the day/week/year... I am so pooped.. cold and wet..
but dang, I hope to do just a little bit more artin' now I have to go find what the challenge of today is... sure have missed all you fun gals...

SO Sorry to hear, Ducky! Good Grief! Let's hope spring comes sooner rather than later so that won't happen again! I was terrified of looking at the heat bill for the month, and I can't imagine what that might cost. :(

Much love! <3

Ducky, check with your household insurance, it may be covered. You can hope! My mom's insurance more than covered her repairs when she had a problem. The guy said that she got her policy sooooo long ago that it was a great policy and that they don't even sell that kind anymore..... it's worth it to check it out. You have been paying it for a long time, might as well use it!

So sorry you had such a hard morning!

Hugs Ducky! That was no fun! Yup that cheeky groundhog predicted more winter! However, I guess what you want is no more snow to add to the ice. Phil's only 39% accurate so here's to him getting it wrong this year! I'll keep my fingers crossed!

I am so sorry, Ducky. I had that happen once long ago and I so sympathize with you guys. I hope it's not nearly as serious as it looks at the moment....are you running de-humidifiers? If not, please do it asap....it really makes a big difference.

So sorry to hear about your house problems, Just Ducky. Hopefully all will work out and the repairs will go smoothly.

Oh, all right! Just cus you're my favourite Imperial :dog:, you can keep arting until you to to bed tonight! We'll unofficially extend it until y'all go to sleep tonight, if you so wish! Keep on arting, keep on trading! But after that, that's it! Then you need to complete your trades, you rascally Imperial :dog:you!


However, I'm going to close the Challenge contest. I don't want to change those rules, to be fair to the people who got theirs in, as we originally published it. I've drawn the name of THE WIENER! And I really did put all the names in a bowl and draw, see...

Question:

When we are finished with the a-thon, if we still have available cards Maria, you said we should move them to the available atc category, correct? Clear them out of the a-thon category? Just double checking.

And I so wanted that challenge prize, but congratulations Twin-kie! You deserve it! Great art!

Miss M
02-02-2014, 08:23 PM
Yes V-rose, you got it. When you're done with the athon, it's good practice to move the cards to the appropriate "Available for Trade" gallery and out of your athon gallery.

I finally finished the vampire postcard that Mariloupatch requested in exchange for one of her lovely poppy postcards:

Thank you all for letting me play! I've moved my cards from the athon gallery to available gallery. (I think I owe V-:dog: a few, not sure exactly how many).

I had fun, peeps, and was glad to be here! Thanks for the laughs! A blast, to say the least!

and on that note, I'll say goodnight with this: (since others have sung songs)

There was a young lady from Wheeling,
Who professed to lack sexual feeling.
When a cynic named Boris,
Simply touched her clitoris,
And she had to be scraped off the ceiling.

Night all, and pleasant dreams! lol
