"Time Flies" If anyone wants to tell me how to post multiple images in one post, I promise to quit doing a post per picture. I keep losing my post screen when I go back the second time.

I open the site up in 2 different windows. The 1st one with the post i am writing & adding pics to & the 2nd one of my personal gallery so i can copy addy from my pics that i am adding, then go back to the 1st window & paste it in the window with the post and then i just flick from one to the other.
Does that make any sense? x

Yes, thank you it does. I hope to get this all down before the end of CAT. Then the trick is just remembering it the next time around :D

My company never showed up. Dang it! Not a problem though. I've been busy nonetheless. Not just with CAT cards though. Someone had to do the dishes too. I hope you all are in the mood for some fishes. I have three of them coming up as soon as they get done drying.
Just to refresh whats still available from me for this CAT:

Happy Green Kitty traded
Hullo, Jake traded
Ladybug

I'll be here for awhile stll. I doubt any more cards will be forthcoming after I upload the fishes tonight. My muse is tired. Or maybe that's me that's tired... at any rate... I'll be back in about 20 minutes or so.
If anyone wants something please give me a holler.

I am going to bed shortly. If anyone wants something, give me a holler. I'll check PMs in the morning. Thanks for the trades thus far. You all made this CAT a good time!

I am at work now, so can at least check in now and then to see the goodies! I brought some images with me to cut out, so hopefully in the morning I can make a few cards before I head off to bed...

Off to check PMs--and maybe send a few trade offers! PM me if there is anything of mine you are interested in trading!

I know I said I was going to bed about two hours ago but that didn't happen.
My fish is still drying. I added some stuff to it. You'll see it in the morning cause I really am going to bed soon. The dog is barking at the back door to be let in so I gotta make this snappy! Don't want him to wake up the neighbors, it's after one.
Nighty night.

Tam I may not get to it for a few days, but I will find that skull in my Printshop program and try to make you another spider and skull card. I printed 4 spiders and only Used one, and two skull both already used. But I have no idea how the next background will come out.

Or would you prefer I just send you the images and you can put them on a background you made?

Ohh and I should mention, my feelings about spiders are closer to Chardonnays than to Tamrantulas, but if I know for sure a spider or a snale is not dangerous I can handle them. just a whole lot happier when they stay away from me and my space.

All that said, The spider and skull card I made was one of my favorites I made this CAT.

Well, fellow CAT-A-THON-ERS...

I burned my Self pretty bad at the beach yesterday and I think making more cards is out of the question today. I can barely walk because I forgot to put lotion on the back of my legs...even having the laptop on my lap hurts, how pathetic is that?

It's like I sabotaged myself from going to the gym for cardio today. I had great plans of soaking in the whirlpool at the gym, too. NOT going to happen. That would be Hell.

Anywho, you guys have fun!

I only made 4 cards compared to 20 something last CAT in FEB.

I'll do better next time, I promise!!

Sorry to hear you got such a bad sunburn, Bethany Lee. I'm really pale and know what it's like to get such a bad burn that it's painful to move. I was really looking forward to seeing more cards from you.

Speaking of cards, Lil Clown is the only thing from the CAT that I have available for trade after going through my PMs this morning. I am going to update everything in my gallery and the thread now, but it may take a few. I will post more cards before five today.

This card has a crinkle textured background. The reason for altered Lisa is two fold ... First I put a book on it to flatten out the card and found out the hard way that it wasn't completely dry! Lisa's face was ruined, but thinking about the fact that Lisa is my favorite of the bunch, I really dislike Bart and Homer's attitudes, I decided to make her different ... Hope you like it.

the background on this was one sent to me as an extra gift in the last collage-a-thon. I think it worked well with these two little fellows.

hello All!
You guys have been busy while I was asleep. I'd still be asleep but I got a major charleyhorse in my right leg and HAD to hop out of bed to make that pain go away! Figured I'm up, might as well stay up! Besides that, it was already noon and time to get up anyway. Lots of pretties to look at with my first cup of coffee too!
I have another fish and some men to show you this morning. I don't know how collagy these men really are...Guess you all can decide that. The fish is for the texture challenge today. I will try to make some more cards today.... no more men or fish though... not sure if I will get anything done or not.
If you can't live without one of these fellas or that fish, just shoot me off a PM. Thanks!

Spotted Owl (Pending); Raven's Egg (TRADED); Wood Thrush (TRADED); Cormorant(TRADED); Meadowlark(TRADED)

Well, I just traded the last of my cards and I have a couple that I owe to people by agreement. It's past 5 here and I had a good time, but I have also run out of steam. Next time I hope I will be better prepared and get more done. Of course, my BF was gone to a translator's convention which also freed up most of my weekend so maybe not lol. Thanks to everyone who traded with me.

Ok--looks like almost everyone is done--and I am just getting started! LOL.

I am home from my OT, and have had some sleep....so, my creative juices are about to start flowing!

Hopefully, I will get a few done before I have to go back to work tonight!

Not as much accomplished for CAT as I wanted, but I have finished the chunky pages for two other swaps. All in all a good weekend. I've been cleaning since I got up this morning since my living room was filled with collage clips and the rest of the house was not looking very good. Turns out we're going to have some last minute visitors who are kidnapping us and taking me for a belated birthday dinner. My "white glove" sister-in-law always makes me feel so wretched about my house, so I'm trying to nip that in the bud!

I've got a few more cards that I will try to post later tonight, after dinner and my sil and friend make their way back home. Here's the three I have done now and scanned. The scanner makes my dog freak out, so I'm holding off to do more after we get back and he's out on his evening walk.

Well here are my final cards,
the green one is a touchy one and has about everything thrown on it..it will be a brave person who wants to trade for that one..LOL
The 2nd one is so that Cattycat doesnt get to do all the cat cards, it came out really pale but there is a blue watercolour background with painted leaves.

I see so many more great cards I'd love to have, but it's almost 7 PM here and I have to work tomorrow plus I have an event in the evening. Is it acceptable to PM people to see if they will let you create something for them after the CAT ends? I likely would not finish them before midweek though.

HHC

Yes, it is acceptable to make arrangements with other traders, if they are agreeable. Go for it. :D

I think that is totally up to you and the person you trade with. I find most people a are very flexable as long as they are kept updated on what you are doing.

That said, since we went out and did errands today, I most likely NOT get back to the post office till Wednesday or Thursday. I do not get mail at my home and it is 6 miles each way to the post office so I usually only go once or twice a week. I will keep you all updated.

http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/259/medium/1_March_09_C-A-T_024.jpg Bunny Cards Description I made these and will make more to send to each person I traded with during the March collage-a-thon. If we are not trading and you would like on just let me know. If you do not want one or just not an Easter on pm me. I do not want to conflict with anyones beliefs or desires.

Tam, I got the botles from artsy farty queen on flickr, and I think most of the small images came from her also. I printed them all seperate and then collaged them, worked better for me and my program then trying to do it all on the computer and just print the bottles with the images in them.

Linda, I am sure there'll be more bottle cards, I totally love this. Plus I am thinking about doing a swap like this.


Michelle, keep an eye out, there'll be more and you can always join my swap

kysunflower
03-15-2009, 08:59 PM
Tam, yeah you did a bottle!

Tamrantula
03-15-2009, 09:01 PM
LOL--That was the fairy one I mentioned last night that I was going to do when I got home from work! I have that rubber stamp--just a tiny bit taller than the card, but if I center it JUST RIGHT, I only lose a bit of the top, and you can't tell! The background colors both on the card and in the jar are melted crayons.

I had thought of finishing out the day making a few more of those...so, maybe I will!

Tamrantula
03-15-2009, 09:44 PM

and what a learning expericen... I pooped... traded many of my cards... thank you...
looking forward to the next... but I deceided I need 2 week notice... thought I was ready come Friday... but all them plans went out the window by Saturday... great bunch of friends here... again thanks to all

03-15-2009, 11:38 PM
Ducky, I'm glad you enjoyed your first CAT... I frequently spend a bit of time prepping backgrounds and clipping images, and then I do something else entirely. LOL.

This has been fun, y'all. Thanks so much for playing. :D

GoldenWolf
03-15-2009, 11:51 PM
I second what Ducky said. I will definitely do more prep work in advance next time and probably address envelopes etc as I make the trades. Plus try not to run out of cards again lol. Thanks to everyone who participated and especially those who traded with me. If I missed trading with you this time, I probably just missed your cards while I was doing something stupid like, um, sleeping and bathing and stuff. So maybe we can trade next time. Now I really must go to bed so I am not a zombie at work tomorrow.

This has been an excellent CAT weekend for me! Thanks to all of you who traded with me. And for those I missed trading with, perhaps next time.
I didn't plan ahead for the CAT, I just went with what the muse threw at me. Some of it traded, some of it didn't. I made 19 for the CAT and traded all but 5. All that's left of the CAT cards are those goofy men. lol Story of my life...all that's left are the goofy ones! Nonetheless, it was an excellent CAT weekend!
Thanks so much for hosting, HHC.

Linda4atc
03-16-2009, 12:55 AM
Well I don't want to quit! LOL But My sweetie will probably call it a night soon so I want to be ready. I hope all of you keep an eye on my gallery this week (maybe not tomorrow since I promised a very neglected man I'll spend the day with him) because I just spent an hour finding and printing up images from my print shop to use. It doesn't matter that I have a box full already!! And my muse is in overdrive.

Had a wonderful time! I tend to spend a lot of time after one these just cutting out images, I then I drop them in one of the plastic atc sleeves and bag them up with othe images not yet trimmed so I always have a lot already cut out. And I try to make up some groups of backgrounds ahead of time since they often take a lot of drying time. I think that is one reason I make so many. But this weekend I only made 23. I didn't get any made after lunch today. But I have all my stuff ready to do more later.

Right now I think I owe Joni and Kysunflower cards and I think adifferentstory owes me one(better check her gallery) anyone else I might be missing here?

Tamrantula
03-16-2009, 01:39 AM
I think I have to go find that print shop program! Those images are very tempting! I worked overtime this weekend--so, I should go treat myself...right? LOL.

I didn't trade too many this time--but had fun anyway! I would love to do more trades in the future, so all my left-overs will be in my gallery.

Looking forward to more CATs, SATs, and whatever else tempts me!

Anyone who I haven't already "bugged"--you are welcome to come and join my "8-legged beauties" swap--all about spiders!

Tamrantula
03-16-2009, 01:43 AM
Hey--I had an idea for an "a-thon" that I wonder if has ever been done--

a Supplies-a-thon--nope, can't call it that...cause it would be a SAT...hmmm.. maybe a Goodie-a-thon--then, it could be a GAT! LOL

What I am thinking is something where--for a weekend...people post pics of images, papers, fibers, napkins, backgrounds, interesting little bits and bobs and other goodies....that they would like to trade. Maybe the week before a CAT?

What do you think? Would anyone be interested in something like that? Who would we talk to about that? I would be willing to host, if it is something we would be allowed to do--and if there was interest?

Any thoughts?

And as for your Spider Swap, I have more fun making spider cards for others. Not sure I want to collect them myself ... Guess I could make you some then send them with a NO Returns please so you'll have more to trade out and add to your collection ....
