View Full Version : Valentine's All Types of Art-a-thon

Pages : [1] 2

February 14 to 17 (Monday is Presidents Day)

All-Types-Art-a-thon is here again! This time the theme is Valentine’s .

design49, Just Ducky and mouseit will be hosting.

Start time (in your time zone) 12:01 am on Friday morning, February 14, 2014
and end time (in your time zone) 11:59 pm on Monday (Presidents Day in the United Stated) evening, February 17, 2013.

This weekend we will :
1) Create Valentine themed art of any type to show and tell: ATC’s, chunky pages, 4x4’s, 4x6’s, inchies, twinchies, bookmarks, charms, jewelry, art dolls, skinny pages, journal pages, tags, rollos, gothic arches, post cards, altered tins – or whatever type of art your heart calls you to create.
And we'll be collaging, sewing, painting, drawing, zentangles, digital altering, photographs, metal work, beading, sculpting, using postage stamps, creating Found Poetry, tea bag folding, transparencies... you name it!
2) Show what lovely creations you've made
3) Trade art - if you wish.
4) Chat (if you can only stop in to admire the art and chat sometimes, that’s absolutely okay!)
5) Feel free to ask questions in the thread


Friday: Valentines Traditional add glitter and glitz
Saturday: Valentines Non Traditional (using green, blue or purple anything but pink or red)
Sunday: ????
Monday: Postage stamp on a card.
(Themes are ENTIRELY optional.

ALSO NOTE that your work does NOT have to be for trade. If you’re working on swaps or a quilt or your journal, show us whatever you’re working on today.

What IS a-thon?
It’s a marathon create-your-favorite-art, done over the same day and time in each time zone. It’s kind of like we were all together for the weekend to play with our art supplies and this thread is our play room.

HOW IT WORKS: At 12:01 am on Friday, February 14th (your time zone - which is really Midnight on Thursday if you think about it!) start creating art, then upload your lovely creations to the A-Thon Gallery and post to the thread. Continue throughout the event time. Trading and chatting ensues.

HOW TO ASK FOR A TRADE: When you find a piece of art or goody bag you must have, please SEND A PERSONAL MESSAGE (pm) to that person asking for a trade. Please DO NOT post requests for trades to the thread. It can get way too confusing.

Note: If you do make a trade, please be sure to send to your trade partner within two weeks. If you’re running late, communicate!

WANT TO COMPLIMENT AN ARTIST: And you will… remember you can click the You Rock button and leave it there.

From your atcsforall.com gallery:
It’s easiest to have two windows open. I can create another "tab" and get to my gallery in one and be in my post reply box in the other.
Internet Explorer
1 Go to the main page of your gallery & right click on the picture you wish to post - this brings up a menu has “properties” at the bottom.
2) Right click on “properties”, and it will show you Address (URL). Highlight the address/url and copy (Ctrl C).
Then follow steps 3 - 5

Note: Your picture will come up as large. Most folks use small or medium in the thread.

Mozella Firefox
1) Go to the main page of your gallery & right click on the picture you wish to post - this brings up a menu that includes “Copy Image Location” (which is about 2/3 down the list for me)
2) Click on the “Copy Image Location”
Then follow steps 3 - 5

3) Go to your post in the thread and click on the "insert image" button (looks like a postcard)
4) Paste the address (right click, click paste or Ctrl V) into the window that pops up and hit OK - that puts the code into your post for your picture to show up; (you paste the address from the properties box over the http thingy that shows when you open the "insert image" box)
5) Remember that images from the gallery can be small, medium or large. Find the word small, medium or large (or letters s m l) in the address and change it to size you want. Most folks use small or medium in the thread.
[IMG]http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/400/small/1_Maygar_Posta-traded.jpg [/IMG

(leaving the last bracket off the above so you can see how the address will look)

From your computer:
1. Click POST REPLY at the bottom of the messages screen. Above the message box, click the paperclip next to the smiley face. Then upload as usual. This will upload your picture as a thumbnail.
2. If you go into the Quick Reply box at the bottom of the messages screen, click GO ADVANCED and you will get the paperclip above the message box.

I like V-dog's ideas on how to keep track of your trades.. She spread sheet was a very neat idea.

I will be playing.

Thanks so much for extending it through Monday!
I am looking forward to this.

02-10-2014, 01:22 PM
Beware of V-dog don't know if she will give use some new titles.

Just remember eat lots of chocolates and drink your favorite wine while you are creating art or cards. Now my favorite candy is cinnamon hearts. Love the taste don't know if they go good with wine, but I will find out.

I've got a seminar on Saturday and I have a swap to work on, however, I'll check it out around those things!

02-10-2014, 01:37 PM
Great come and work on your swap with us.

02-10-2014, 01:50 PM
I'll be there.

02-10-2014, 01:52 PM
I will pop in from time to time to admire the art. Not sure if I will get any cards made as it is soooo hot here at present and difficult to sit inside for any length of time. Will have to try for early mornings LOL.

02-10-2014, 02:22 PM
I'll be sporadic, but hope to play a little! :)

Hoping to get tome hearts done for my swap (and to trade, of course!)

I am SO in!!!!! (with a new title please - I can't beat, or see around, MariaP's "please" so mine is just a little sugar-coated)
hmmm licking fingers Maria's "please" is VERY tasty

dsign49 - in your opening blurb, in how it works, you say that we start at 12.01am THURSDAY. Should it be FRIDAY or do we get an extra day both ends?

02-11-2014, 12:04 AM
Just wanted to share with you what my hubby put in my place at the table this morning. He often does it to let me know he loves me... LOL
I guess he does! Romance is NOT dead girls!!!

02-11-2014, 12:09 AM
Awwwww...that is SO sweet!!!!!! He needs to hold some "Romance" classes and teach a LOT of other men how to do stuff like that!

btw....I left the book "1001 Romantic Ideas" on the table with a note to my sweetie - the note basically said that this book was to be his "bible number 2"!!!!!

Just Ducky
02-11-2014, 12:42 AM

Lovely flower. He must love alot. Flowers are always welcome in my house.

Dsign, yeah I love flowers in the house too, Love the spring and daffodils inside in lots of vases.

02-11-2014, 08:53 AM
(boy is that Mousie demanding AND impatient!!!!! Typical rodent!!! I am use to greedy, demanding rodents, the one around here jacked up prices for a one day admission to $95. No wonder hubby has to grow roses, I bet that rodent demands them EVERYDAY! Poor guy HAS to grow them as he couldn't afford to buy a dozen everday!)

(oh, boy! I am going to catch hell-O for that snide comment! Can't wait!!! ...and couldn't resist!!! LOL)

02-11-2014, 08:58 AM
Mouseit you are now Queen IGIWIRN!!!!

02-11-2014, 09:00 AM
*smacks* the velcrodoggie...and rattles her leash....hey behave.... he got the money to buy me roses, but he CHOOSES to grown them with his own hands and all to let me know how much he loves me...any old dog can go out and BUY roses....... *STO*


02-11-2014, 09:01 AM
Okay, whoever can tell me what IGIWIRN means - I will send an ATC with a picture of Queen IGIWIRN on it!!!

02-11-2014, 09:01 AM
Queen IGIWIRN has to go sleep now......

02-11-2014, 09:03 AM
AND she kicks the poor dog too!

(*whine* whimper* and crawls into a corner, shaking)

02-11-2014, 09:04 AM
and she changed to her title that quick.... beating dogs makes her happy and sleepy!

02-11-2014, 10:21 AM
I want a title too, please? :wubclub:

It appears that my mom is coming home from the hospital today, and dad is getting over his flu (it's been a long few days...), so hopefully I can get caught up on everything here soon. I tell ya, when it rains, it pours!

02-11-2014, 10:31 AM
Sorry to hear, Flying Phoenix. Lovely roses mouseit!

I'm away for most of the weekend but I hope to be able to check in.

Miss M
02-11-2014, 10:32 AM
What??? Mousie beats dogs??? :err: V:dog: bite back! :biglaugh:

02-11-2014, 11:04 AM
Well V-dog you kind of had that coming. You have to be nice to our other side of the world host. If her hubby can grow rosed that beautiful I would't want sore bought one either, because half time time they don't even open up.

02-11-2014, 11:10 AM
IGIWIRN.....the recess of the alders

Sound important. Queen IGIWIRN

Miss M
02-11-2014, 11:49 AM
Actually, I think Mouseit started it with her dog collar and leash comments :) (and y'all rather like it when she runs free, so why would you want to restrain her?? *head-shaking*)....can't blame a V:dog: for giving as good as she gets!!! :biglaugh:

02-11-2014, 01:35 PM
I will try to join all you loving artists.

02-11-2014, 04:29 PM
Miss M I can find a gag for you if you encourage her to bite the mouse... besides.. heehee she wouldn't she would eat me whole!!! I noticed the thread to the groundhog day is closed....good, now we can all carry on in here...LOL

Looks like its going to be a great weekend... Roll on Friday!!!

02-11-2014, 04:30 PM
FlyingPheonix, glad things are starting to look up kiddo. Nothing worse than having sick rellies you care about to look after. Lets hope things settle better for you.

Miss M
02-11-2014, 05:00 PM
dog collar, leashes, gags....who knew you were so kinky Mouse? :eek: Have you been reading the 50 Shades of Grey again? Personally, not my cup of tea, but a lot women seem to like it! LOL

Miss M
02-11-2014, 08:59 PM
Dehh68, V:dog: can be prevailed upon for kindness! She left a corner untaped on the one I got today! (Hopefully that wasn't just an oversight!)

02-11-2014, 09:18 PM
Okay... now... in order to open my envies... there is a simple way to do it. You take the envie and tap the short end on the counter to shake all the contents to the other end.... Remember in the old days how the would tap a pack of cigarettes to pack them tight? Same thing. Then you take a pair of scissors and trip off a 1/32nd of an inch off the end. And it is open!!! Simple and the way I open every envie I get... this way you can also just put a new label on my envie and reuse it and tape the side up! See! Simple!

Now, Gags, Leashes, Collars, Beatings. "*smacks* the velcrodoggie...and rattles her leash" I may be a velcrodog on this site, but if some people (we won't say who mousie!) are going to talk that way, smacking me and rattling my leash.... and then "Maria I can find a gag for you". Woo Hoo, Girl! You had best be careful! You don't want to release my inner lesbian masochist or Maria's, do you? I cannot believe what I am reading on this thread! :embarrassed: Oh, did I go there!!! LOL! :biglaugh::biglaugh::biglaugh::biglaugh:

(in my best Mae West voice) Mousie, come up and see me sometime.....

Miss M
02-11-2014, 09:35 PM
OH MY! :embarrassed: Should we give the two of you some privacy here??

02-11-2014, 09:41 PM
LOL!!! this is tooo crazy!!! (God! I hope everyone else is laughing as hard as I am....)

02-11-2014, 10:52 PM
OMG Look what I have started... more smutt...LOL and this a romance thread.. LOL then again smutt is romance to some people.. heehee

Miss M, I got another leash for you and NOOOOoooo I have never and have no intention of reading 50 shades of grey...No thank you! They would have to pay me a lot of money to read that trash.. Opps did I say that out loud??? OHOH Each to their own....

As to Lesbians and you two.. *smirks* I wonder if youtube does volunteer filmings.. *giggles*

GLAD everyone got their unopened envies from the Velcromutt, at least customs didn't get any of your cards Dehh68 and Miss M... and now you know from her own mouth how to open one of her letters....YOU ROCK MUTT!!

Mutt rhymes with Mouse so I have decided that you will be Mutt to me now....LOL

02-11-2014, 10:52 PM
Who's speaking like Mae West.... didn't she have big boobs???

02-11-2014, 10:54 PM
Miss M, Mouse and Mutt .. the three amigos.... huh huh huh .... heehee heehee heehee

Happy Now?

02-11-2014, 11:10 PM
Maria, Mouse and Mutt.... alphabetical order...and in order of youth!

(and Mae West had big boobs... like me!)

02-11-2014, 11:22 PM

I would love to play but my husband is visiting here so I can't. I have seen him only once since I moved on January 4th.

Miss M
02-12-2014, 09:15 AM
Maria, I got another leash for you

Sorry, Mouse, I'm simply not into bondage, and because you can't grow a beard, you just ain't my type! :biglaugh: You'll have to find someone else.

Oh, and I figured out your title...it's very...apt for this thread. And it really is spelt Queen Igiwirn! V:dog: is a clever one! (But I won't tell you now cus I don't wanna spoil your fun in guessing!)

sniisk, under the circumstances I'd hope you rather spend time with your husband! Being Valentine's Day and all! Enjoy your weekend! Come check out the thread next week, so you can see all the art!

02-12-2014, 11:16 AM
Looking forward to playing! I hope to work on some backgrounds today and tomorrow.

Sniisk - I hope your "new" job is going well. Have a nice weekend!

02-12-2014, 11:34 AM
Maria is correct.... She isn't going to tell, so everyone can keep guessing.

I am getting all the titles ready and will bestow them tomorrow. This one is a bit harder for me as I am trying to have them all about Valentines Day. Not as easy as geographically looking for royalty.

The only, and I mean, ONLY, reason that Mouseit has her title already is because she is so darn impatient!!!!!

ie:"Velcrodoggie, where's my title...I want it now...LOL"

If you want to guess at her title, please do so... but in a pm to me, not on the thread and I will post who has guessed it, just like Maria, but I won't post what it actually means until later in the athon. Now, I have also given a clue in this post as to what her title is pertaining to.


02-12-2014, 12:08 PM
Oh! I have everyones (who has asked-so far) titles ready! AND I still have some to spare so if you want one... there are more in the wings....

I might be talked into posting them early!

Just Ducky
02-12-2014, 12:49 PM

and YES----- V:dog:..... post them new Titles.... and post them NOW... :wubclub::confused:the clock is running and getting close for our far-a-way players....

02-12-2014, 01:35 PM

Miss M
02-12-2014, 02:44 PM
OMG!! Um....I'm going to choose to take my title literally! :embarrassed: (and not the slang!...I keep telling ya, I just don't swing that way V:dog:...not that there's anything wrong with it) So I'll say my cat will be thrilled at the supply of boxes to hide in!!!

02-12-2014, 03:51 PM
LOVE my new title!!!! - I taught French a few years ago at my previous school - ended up being able to go to New Caledonia on the Year 10 excursion.

Am figuring out if I can make a botanical heart shaped flower work - also making some backgrounds ready - I think I have some 'romantic' snarky comments that will work - we are doing some building stuff this weekend so will pop in when I can

02-12-2014, 05:07 PM
OMG! Maria!!!! I didn't even think of that!!!!!! OMG! ROTFLMAO!!! You were just asking for a title and said...."I suppose I be needing a title too...pretty please with chocolate syrup, cherries, cinnamon candy hearts, sprinkles, chocolate chips, peanuts, oreo cookies, skor bar, raspberry sauce, gummie worms, caramel, marshmallows, strawberries, coconut and edible gold on top?" and I figured that it would be boxes of candy....

Miss M
02-12-2014, 05:30 PM
V-:dog: I was thinking of an ice cream sundae. *shaking head laughing*

02-12-2014, 07:10 PM
May I please have a title, v-dog?

02-12-2014, 07:15 PM
Yes, you may....

Mcgillisj your are now the Contessa of Cherubs

02-12-2014, 07:17 PM
And Divine Miss M.... all I could think of is the boxes and boxes of candy you would need to put all that on top of a "pretty Please"!!!

02-12-2014, 08:37 PM
:err: is there another meaning to Lady of Lace?

02-12-2014, 09:12 PM
My only available day to play is Sunday. Will be working for the next few days. Tonight is the A*Live trading here in Singapore and I've created a few cards on the theme LOVE.
Is it okay if I upload the cards now?

02-12-2014, 10:21 PM
If there's still a leash and gag on offer, I'm volunteering! :biglaugh:
(See how desperate I am? I really do need that awesome necklace, v:dog:! ;) )

Also, I need a title, please! (if you have a kinky one, I'll wear it with pride! :biglaugh: And remember what they say about those barking dogs, guys. ;) )

02-12-2014, 10:43 PM
Sorry, Mouse, I'm simply not into bondage, and because you can't grow a beard, you just ain't my type! :biglaugh: You'll have to find someone else.

Gesh I didn't mean me... what would MrC do?? LOL

Rita... love ALL your cards you have done for you live group today... but you know that Doggie has a soft spot in my heart....

NOw V:dog:.... poor Ducky, now HE is really feeling down... you gave HIM a girls name ??

02-13-2014, 01:00 AM
I checked my clock and dang it is getting close for you "other" side of the world gals...
thinking it is almost midnight here for me so it's ???? 4 pm. Thrusday in Aussie land ??

I spent this evening gathering stuff and working some background ideas... man it sure don't take much to mess up a room...

for all our friends in the south and east... I know you are really getting hit with this lastest winter storm... please stay home... keep safe...

02-13-2014, 02:38 AM
it is 5.37pm on Thursday here in Sydney - a few hours to go

02-13-2014, 02:54 AM
It is 2.50pm on Thursday for me at the moment which means that Brisbane is 4.50pm and Melbourne is 5.50pm (Queensland thinks that they get enough sunshine and so don't adopt daylight saving time).

Only 9 hours before I can start - better finish those last couple of cards owed for the last Athon :embarrassed:

02-13-2014, 05:09 AM
Ducky can be the King of Hearts!!! It is hard sometimes to differentiate from Ducky and Nancy.....Nancy is the Queen of Hearts...

Yep! Didn't mean to hurt Ducky's feelings... subconsciously, maybe I just wanted someone to cross-dress with this time!!!!!

Lady of Lace has no special meaning, just thought of you with all the amazing things you do with paper and thought of how lace is amazing things done with thread and material....

02-13-2014, 06:45 AM
I have 23 snarky comments totally suitable for Valentine's Day ready to go - need to make some backgrounds now

02-13-2014, 09:02 AM
Well here it is...its 12.00am and I can start in ONE MINUTE...not going to of course I am going to get some sleep!!!, Then work for the day dropping in every so often to see whats happening....'

Rita your cards for that show are lovely, hope you have fun with them.


Miss M
02-13-2014, 09:06 AM
oh, rub it in why don't you that some of us still have 16 hours to go! :biglaugh:

02-13-2014, 09:56 AM
I'll be getting some backgrounds made today.. I'm going traditional. I won't be going anywhere for days, SNOW, SNOW, SNOW. Hopefully, we won't loose electricity and I'll be able to play.

02-13-2014, 11:18 AM
Sorry I have been busy and did't get to the thread yesterday. Mouse and v-dog have been keeping everyone busy just reading the thread to see if dog has eaten mouse yet.

Love my title.

02-13-2014, 12:22 PM
Sorry I have been away but I had to survey/sample my kingdom (what do you call the area that is controlled by a Countess - a countdom?) yummy chocolate

now with a full tummy I will leave you with the 1 card I completed before I also go to bed - to get us in the mood

02-13-2014, 12:52 PM
Thanks Donna that should get everyone in the mood.

02-13-2014, 01:28 PM
I'd love to have a Valentiney title, too! I probably won't have time to make cards, but will check in to see the fun and fabulous art that's most certainly going on.

02-13-2014, 03:58 PM

Oh Ducky, you really quack me up.
I didn't get any Snarkies last Athon, no, not a single one:cry:

You are going to have to blame someone else for beating you to those pretties.:biglaugh:

Vicki Z
02-13-2014, 07:25 PM
Scanning can help, but it sometimes also gives scans that suck
In which case I lay the cards on a dark navy blue mat, which seems to help.
All you ca do is experiment

Miss M
02-13-2014, 09:08 PM
Dehh68, as Vicki said, if you take pics you have to play with your camera. Natural light is best...I know it limits you to daylight photography. You can do the flash things but it's like portraiture and you really need to diffuse it.
I went the scanner route. I bought a high dpi scanner (Canon CanoScan 9000F Colour Scanner) and it's not bad. The only thing it really doesn't pick up is the iridescent or glitter paints/markers I use.

Just Ducky
02-13-2014, 10:30 PM
everyone taking a nap ??? where all you gals.... just me and ducks... and I sitting here BORING... watching the clock.. and I think it is stuck... I feel like I am watching grass grow and my grass is under about 4 feet of snow...

Vicki, you didn't get no snarky cards last time ??? me neither... boy, hope Jonquil doesn't think we don't love her nomore.... I had just one thing after nother go wrong for me with the Backward marathon and hoping things smooth out this time...

Jonquil.... waving hi.... :jiggy: sure sorry we didn't connect last time... but I am planning on making up time this weekend...

Miss M. sure was happy to see you post Ducky and his love... mail is sure running slow from Canada, at least for me... that or Ducky and his love are on Honeymoon....

Dehh... I use a scanner for posting cards... that way I also keep a copy of all my cards in a folder... I am using a HP... but think most any good scanner will do a mostly good job.

02-13-2014, 10:55 PM
2 more hours! I'm sure the clock is stuck or something.

02-13-2014, 11:04 PM
Mousie... I KNOw your sweet hubby is spraying you with pretty ROSES today... what ya got for him..... ohhhhhh...
YEP AND HERE THEY ARE!! heehee Just thought I would share so you could all enjoy them. I got him a lovely card that says it all...LOL

I'm into count down... having to wait till midnight... but I got glue stick warmed up and ready to pounce...

Ducky and Nancy, Hope you are keeping more than your glue stick warm...LOL
Still at work, need to be outta here early cos its Friday and we get an early minute!! whoohoooo

Ok Taking over BUT I am NOT a happy camper, my hard drive on my office computer has S#@* itself, so I am without it and all my pictures etc on it.... I had hoped it was just the screen not recognizing the computer, no such luck so It off to the Technician...and it couldn't have picked a worst time to break down, so all my cards are going to be photographs as no scanning can be done.....Thank goodness for phones, ipads and laptops!!!!

Now i am going out for tea and I will return.

Jewels - Just delightful cards......

Dehh - Love yours as well!! Great job,......

02-14-2014, 04:20 AM
Happy Valentine's Day and a fabulous Athon to you all! I plan to finish a not-for-trade project later this morning, and will post it here for you to see when it's ready.

02-14-2014, 06:01 AM
Have had a very productive afternoon - managed to finish 26 cards!!!! Here are the first few snarkies - some are more 'romantic' themed than others

02-14-2014, 08:29 AM
Holy WOW everyone! Look at all those AMAZING cards!

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to catch a break, and I'm still running from the weekend. I'm HOPING that I can get everything accomplished tomorrow (including sending trades from the last ATHON - Sorry everyone! >.<) and then Sunday be able to do a few cards for this one.

Mom's home from the hospital (thank goodness!) but dad's still under the weather and hasn't bounced back yet. The silver lining in the week was that the Huzbuz and I FINALLY got to an appointment (that wasn't cancelled) and heard the baby for the first time. ^^

I'll be lurking at the very least.

02-14-2014, 08:30 AM
Oh, and Happy V-Day everyone!

02-14-2014, 09:16 AM
Ohh How wonderful Flying P It always makes me weep the sound of a baby's heart beat....

02-14-2014, 09:17 AM
Obviously you did LOL!!!!!

YES! Heehee and like normal I can't decide which ones I like the best......LOL

02-14-2014, 09:26 AM
Hubby took me out to tea tonight which is why I haven't put any art up yet...LOL thats about to change... Here's Number one....

1. Be Mine - Available

But before I do that.... I was attached by a vicious dog that lives next door to me, after tea we walked to a friends house around the corner for a few drinks...and on the way home this vicious dog that lives next door tried to eat me....I mean it it did....actually it was just excited to see me out of the car and was jumping cheerfully on me to greet me and scratched my wrist, so had to come inside and cleanse it and all....BLOOD EVERYWHERE....

Now here is number one, with out the blood.. heehee

02-14-2014, 09:33 AM
Ok Its now 12.32 am here and I think I am falling alseep....

TAG'S Dsign and Ducky and hands over the baton, ok I am off to get a few hours sleep!

02-14-2014, 09:33 AM
Fantastic ATCs everyone! I just re-read thru the entire thread. I saw too that I missed giving prayer at night her title.... sorry I missed it but you will be...

Prayer at Night Temptress of Love & Frolicking

I love the cards that are made so far... I have a lot to do this athon, so I won't be going for my usual 100 cards.... I will be lucky if I hit 25 or 30. I have a lot of outstanding swaps, PIF's & MMH that I will be doing this weekend too! But that is still arting, just not tradeable.

Don't worry about not having all your cards out Lady of Labor, I still have a few that I am still strying to duplicate and or just package up. It's been a trying week for me. Glad you got to see the little one!

Love the snarkies and the mousies! Just too cute- you have been busy!

Love the hearts, and the Divine Miss M is right, natural sunlight is the best way to go. That is the entire reason I moved to Florida, just so I could get more natural sunlight to take pictures for this site. Honest! I did it for you! And thanks for my first trade of the athon!

I hope your computer problems are resolved quickly Mousie. I wish I could help, but you know me.... I don't know nothin' bout birthin' no computers, Miss Scarlet! (but, if you are in ICU, CCU, Shock Trauma, Burn ICU, Neuro ICU, Neonatal ICU- I could be of great assistance!- I think we've had this convo before! XD)

Here are a few that have dried overnight...

6. Orange & Lime Green Heart (about 3.5 x 3 inches) 139337TRADED

7. You send me flying.... ATC 139338

8. My first Hand for a PIF Front Side 139339 TRADED

The back of my first hand 139340 TRADED

9. Twinchie - my first one - Roses in her Hair 139341 TRADED

Now off to get ready to see the doctor....deep sigh:sad:

02-14-2014, 10:35 AM

02-14-2014, 10:38 AM
Absolutely gorgeous cards posted so far! I love reading through the thread over my morning coffee!

Ducky, love Dee-Dee Duck! Aww, the Ducks looks so happy! I"m glad he's distracted while his feathers grow back, and you know it's true love if she wants him anyways! ;)

V:dog: you're such a ham! or is it you like to eat ham?? :unsure:

Love the roses and the mini-Phoenix heartbeats!!

Dear Miss M - the artist formerly known as MariaP.
You mention Ducky, and Vdog, and Phoenix, but not me. :0(
You don't like my cards?????:cry:

I shall henceforth bow, and grovel, and lower my eyes, and
call you "Mistress M"
until you acknowledge my meager offerings

Miss M
02-14-2014, 10:49 AM
Vicki Z, all the cards were gorgeous! I loved looking at all of them. I didn't single out any one card maker in particular, cus then I'd have to use my brain to choose, and I'm not evem done my coffee yet! :err: So yes Vicki, lovely hearty kitties! Hmmm, are you sure that one isn't the cat kicked the owner out of the chair and the cats smug about it? Mine dones that...and my arting chair too of all things! :biglaugh:

I gotta get back to work, I'll catch ya's all later!

02-14-2014, 10:58 AM
We have very romantic plans for this evening. We are going to watch ice hockey (or he is :biglaugh:) and I will be making some ATCs. This is how we would spend the evening normally so why not also now. First, a dinner in a good restaurant but after that we'll meet here.

02-14-2014, 11:26 AM
Happy Valentines Day everyone! Hope to be able to play later this weekend. Can't miss out on all of the awesome art!

Velcrodog, may I trouble you for a title?

02-14-2014, 11:38 AM
#9: I love U - up-cycling an old un-traded card with an Origami Bear w heart.

02-14-2014, 11:53 AM
Fantastic cards shown by one and all (I stopped on my way here to ask for a few trades ;))

I fell into my old trap and couldn't resist some of the string patterns that I found, so here are my first 5 cards. All are available and will be in my Gallery tomorrow but I need to go to bed now before I fall off my chair.

Card 2 plays with positive/negative images and very fine glitter, while cards 4 and 5 use exactly the same threads just the background changes.

02-14-2014, 01:09 PM
Terrific, wonderful, fantastic, funny, creative, awesome, etc..... Need I say more....


I finished 2


02-14-2014, 01:30 PM

VickiZ you have been busy too.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

So nice to enjoy all of the art to start the marathon!

We are dug out from the storms and ready for the next one tomorrow. Really ready for Spring! Was reminded by our handyman that our generator needed to be dug out so traipsed over in all the accumulated snow and did that and I think I pulled something in the process. :arghh: I have some art started - hopefully I can get something posted before too long.

Sniisk - I had to laugh - that sounds about right though we are both watching the Olympics now while they are on.

Just Ducky
02-14-2014, 04:58 PM
what a way to spend Valentine's Day... sitting on the ice covered ROOF with my hubby.. got a hammer in one hand and ice pick in the other... cold... but yep, we got a new leak coming from someplace... I would cry but sure wouldn't help... so just chip away more ice jams and move on...

moving on.... you guys are doing such pretties ... Vicki, love them men cards.. reminds me of a plumber I once knew... tee-hee

Sanna... just enjoy your hubby even if he is watching hockey... you can do art after he has to leave...
Donna... always love your stitching cards... such detail...
Miss M. when you doing show and tell gal ??? or have I missed something....:confused:
esasta... come on gal, gather up your stuff and come play....
Sharlene.... hope you aren't buried in snow.. and sure liking your "Heart" offerings...
V:dog:... I sure hope my name is on the cutie ducky card.. better be or I come down there to haunt you..
Mayaquilt... oh, naked Valentine's .. me in my younger days ?? (only in my dreams)
and KES... I am with you gal... enough of this Winter shit... bring on Spring..
ok... gotta turn my back on this computer and get some cards done so I can knock on more trader doors..

I have to go and clean up my mess on the kitchen table before supper.

Be back later to try and make some trades.

02-14-2014, 05:35 PM
Ducky - that's just not right on Valentine's day - you've already been through the roof leak thing once!

I see more wonderful cards and still I have nothing to show - I shall try harder.

02-14-2014, 06:07 PM
I haven't made anything for trade, either, though I'm seeing lots of cards I'd love to have in this thread. I was happy to finish a Valentine's themed door hanging decoration earlier, though! Let's see if I can get an image attached here.

02-14-2014, 06:28 PM
MORNING ALL! Yep I am up and now I have to go sand do a shopping trip with hubby (I got talked into it)

Beautiful cards Vicki and dsign, and everyone else, they are amasing.

Donna love your string hearts.....

Back soon,...

02-14-2014, 07:27 PM
I'll have to catch up on the thread after my date with the Huzbee (Movie and Dinner)!

But...I'll share my silly little postcard I drew out at work today:


I love AT-AT's. Just sayin'. <3

02-14-2014, 07:42 PM
Hehe. That's marvelously adorable, Phoenix!

Miss M
02-14-2014, 08:02 PM
Hey Ducky! I just got home from work a little while ago (and even though I'd love to do art their, my employer wouldn't love it so much!), my dinners in the oven, and I'll see after that what I can get with arting tonight! Sorry to hear your roof is leaking...again!

02-14-2014, 08:32 PM

sorry to post and run but I am really tired tonight... think I over did my time on stupid icy roof today....

nite gals... and remember if you want ... tomorrow (Saturday) challenge is

VALENTINES OF A DIFFERENT COLOR.... (like, no red or pink)

02-15-2014, 01:26 AM
Hi everyone! I spent today giving the trailer a good cleaning, moving the sofa and everything. And surprising my sweet hubby with a nice dinner for my gifts to him today. He gave me spending money a week or so back to cover Valentines, my birthday and our anniversary; I spent all of it a Michaels. Then he took me out to eat at one of celebration restaurants so I'm happy.

I have sent a few trade requests, and I need to do some cards for a trade with Nancy. So tomorrow I will get busy.

02-15-2014, 01:40 AM
So much fun Jewels, Dsign49 and Ducky!

Hi Linda!

We were sitting on our sofa tonight watching the Olympics minding our own business when we heard this gigantic crack over our heads. (I had visions of Ducky's story of water running down our walls.) A trip to the attic did nothing to unearth the origin of the sound and since I am not as sure footed as Ducky a trip to the top of our roof is not in the cards. We just had a new roof and new gutters installed this falls so we are mystified as to what could have caused the sound but it sure woke everyone up. I'm guessing it probably has something to do with all the ice that is out there - I just hope it's not real bad. :err:

Anyway 3 final POSTCARDS from me - happy to trade for any kind of art.




Night all - see you tomorrow!

02-15-2014, 01:51 AM

wow, more lovely stuff to look over as I have my morning coffee! Figures V:dog: would be into rubbers! :biglaugh:

I was working on one of my RAKs last night, so I only managed to get 1 athon card done.

But today is another day. I do have my seminar today, so I will be checking in later.

Cheerios! (yes I spelt it that way on purpose...it's breakfast time here!)

G'night Mousie! Ducky I hope you had a good sleep after your roof-ice-capade-adventures. Chipping ice on your roof is NOT and olympic sport BTW!

02-15-2014, 09:51 AM
Great cards, everyone! I woke up really early and managed to make a few this morning. The squirrels are for today's challenge (non traditional coloured valentines):





02-15-2014, 11:49 AM
pant, drool, pant, pant
you find the best guys........

And the best is..... I'm willing to share :biglaugh:

02-15-2014, 12:46 PM
Wow! Another morning that I look at everything and want it all! Great Job Everyone!!! And Mayaquilt, thanks for the eye candy! Always love that you are willing to share!!! XD

Not a lot of time to art today.... but I am trying! Just got some things out in the mail.... I need more packing tape!!!!!:arghh:

DUCKY!!! I love the Cooper card! and have you looked in my "available" gallery? not my athon gallery as I made these before the athon....

02-15-2014, 01:13 PM
Ok...just caught up on the thread. WOW! I really need to get my firey tailfeathers in gear!

So Sorry to hear about the Ice, Nancy. Ugh. Here's hoping spring comes early here!

It's...been a morning. Thankfully the Huzbee has been wonderful and supportive through it all. <3

Working on packing up trades, then we're heading out to do some shopping...I need pants. XD

If I'm lucky, I may get in a few more PAT cards (I'm SO far behind...) and possibly some others as well. :)

02-15-2014, 01:32 PM
Fabulous art while I slept and slept in!

It's snowing again! :arghh:

Ducky I have some Kona cards in the works! ;)

Must drink coffee first.

02-15-2014, 01:42 PM
Hi everyone. I finally got up with the thread and finished 3 more.

Yes, it's snowing again. 2 to 4" this time. What a mess.

Thank goodness for the marathon. I am definitely getting cabin fever. I was lucky to get away for a while. Back to reality.


02-15-2014, 02:18 PM
KESagers...you are getting what we got yesterday. Sorry....blame Al Roker. lol

Gotta blame somebody!!!!!!

02-15-2014, 02:19 PM
Lovely cards Sharlene!

02-15-2014, 02:55 PM
I'll blame anyone who has to do with weather. I'm sick of it along with many others. I don't want to watch the news because they talk about snow and anything related to it so much. Anyone go to a flower show?

02-15-2014, 03:44 PM
What a great idea - a flower show!

02-15-2014, 03:49 PM
Just dropping in to say HI and I hope everyone had a fabulous Valentines Day! My hubby had to work yday so we didn't celebrate yday, so we are celebrating today instead. He did bring me a box of candy yday and got the kiddo a couple of things, then today he brought home even more stuff. Brought me a red rose and our daughter a pink rose, got us more candy too! Also got me a coffee mug :) It was so sweet! My parents are keeping our daughter tonight so we can have date night :)

Sorry I couldn't join you all this A-thon, I've been busy working on personal trades and other events, swaps, etc. But I stopped by for some eye candy and am absolutely loving all these beautiful, sweet, funny, creative cards I've seen! Of course I didn't read all of the posts but I can see for the most part that everyone is still their nutty selves ;) I handed out several You Rock's also :)

Anyways, that's me dropping in! <3

02-15-2014, 03:59 PM
Hi Vampires Rose!

02-15-2014, 04:46 PM
A set of ATCs for the marathon. My original photo background digitally altered. Each background has a different digital effect. Embellished with stickles and die cuts. To be traded individually - not as a set.


02-15-2014, 05:24 PM
Everyone is just doing a gread job with the fantasic art you make so we can make some trades or just drool over it.

02-15-2014, 05:26 PM
I made some cards this afternoon.
139464 # 13 139465 # 14 139466 # 15 139467 # 16 139468 # 17

02-15-2014, 05:34 PM
Awesome art, ladies! :wubclub: I love all the traditional, red and pink and cutesy Valentine's themed cards, but also the non-traditional and snarky and steampunky ones - amazing!

I'll try to play tonight! :)

Also, an info for those who listened to my babbling about that Spanish exam: I nailed it! It's a 1.0 = A+ (or so). :D I'm ecstatic! :D

02-15-2014, 05:52 PM
Nice Valentine ATCs Dsign49!

Apples scones just came out of the oven and I have a hot cup of Cinnamon tea - life is good! (Now if it would just stop snowing!)

Another set of ATCs. My original photo background digitally altered. Embellished with stamping and die cuts. To be traded individually - not as a set.

Truly wonderful art everyone! I have several things started but this is the only one finished right now - as requested - a Kona card:


02-16-2014, 01:44 AM
It's very very quiet on the thread.

The snow has stopped - thank goodness. I think between the melt and rain only about an inch stayed on the ground.

Time for bed - see y'all tomorrow!

02-16-2014, 02:18 AM
spent the afternoon with lovely friends at a birthday get together - Japanese themed - so I decorated the presents with handmade cherry blossoms - looked very pretty - going to make some more art now

02-16-2014, 02:40 AM
My Muse was not co-operating yesterday - she took me in 3 different directions, but with never enough to put them in the thread :mad:
She has finally allowed me to finish 2 of the groups (working on the 3rd and nearly there)

These were new for me as I find it hard to include words on my cards (not as quick witted as so many of you :nah:)

02-16-2014, 02:42 AM
I then tried some cat cards - with words :shocked:

Good Morning ya'll! Wow, really nice cards overnight! I've given out lot's of rep this am!

I can't post you my RAK, as it's supposed to be a surprise and the private trade is blind...but I did manage to get a couple of athon cards made!

I feel a Beatles song coming on when I look at the "Sun heart" Divine Miss M!!!

Hope everyone is doing well. I was busy yesterday playing with my new gel plate, I am disguising all my snowflake envelopes so the postal system can't tell they have snowflakes on them AND I started to make some very very interesting envies... so if you trade with me this athon, look out! who knows what kind of envies you might get. But then again - I haven't made enough cards to trade.... and I have to get ready for a class I am teaching on Monday. Which is also, as my dh (not dear) pointed out, our SECOND Wedding Anniversary. Oh, joy.

02-16-2014, 09:43 AM
Again, I'm insanely jealous of everyone's work, and I must get SOMETHING done for this Athon. Too much awesome to pass up!


Yesterday ended up being rough all around, but our company cancelled and another person that was going to drop in was later than expected. We had time at the very end to watch a movie that I picked up at a second-hand store, but I promptly fell asleep through the whole movie. >.< Gr.

This morning is probably going to be swap cards (as many as I can put together) and possibly my canvases for this week's challenge. I may do the canvases at home and bring my supplies with me to do the cards at the farm. I'll have to see how that goes.

velcrodog LOL I had to chuckle when the thought that snowflakes on the envelopes could annoy the mailmen delivering in the South with all their snow. I need to remember to decorate my envies for this ATART.

FlyingPhoenix GROUP HUG back at ya. What canvas challenge?

Dehh68 Good Morning to you. Sorry about the snow and your knee injury (been there on both) but arting sound good. :D.

mayaquilt You do lovely work. Love the colors and composition on your chunkies.

Just Ducky hope you get in here to see my new cards since I owe you like a 100 trades....LOL
I have slept only 4 hours so going to get a bit more sleep.. See ya later.:wubclub:

Okay, I am back to "abby" normal... to quote mel brooks

I am offering up 3 Valentines ATCs from yesterday
20. 139532 21. YODA IS TRADED139533 22. 139534

and 1 tag, 139535 23.

all non traditional colour Valentines.

And I was inspired by the new stamp I received on a gelli stamped envie that inspired my envies... I turned sweet gypsy's envie into 5 ATC blanks and here is the one with the stamp on it...139536 24. I vividly remember her running for President in 1972, in the middle of the women's rights movement, I was 15. It is amazing what women have accomplished since then. And we still have a long way to go.

02-16-2014, 03:54 PM
Great cards everyone! If I have time, I will try to play today and tomorrow.

02-16-2014, 04:06 PM
Just sharing, this one I made last night, called Valentine Memorabilia. Made from candy wrapper (background), gold glitter nail polish, fortune from Japanese dinner, leaves from chocolate rose, and the flower was already in my craft stash. Thought this turned out pretty. Made two, one for myself with a different fortune on it.
