Hello lovely ladies
Time once again for a new challenge at ATCAS and our host for the next fortnight is the gorgeous and talented Shana. Now what did that lovely lady choose for us this time round……..
Great code word don’t you agree and I was so inspired I actually did some stamping !!!!!, that’s not to say when I use my Cameo I’m not inspired lol , but its been ages since I did any I nearly forgot how to do it. I made two cards and couldn’t decide which one I liked best so you lucky people (not) get to see both attempts.
This is a Memory Box stamp called words to birds collage, it’s a bit on the weeny side so if your like me and you suffer from bloggers blindness you could possibly mistake those birds for ants !
I used a variety of Adirondack inks which I applied with memory foam and just squidged them all over the place until I was happy with my squidging . When I was all squiggled out I stamped my image on top. What are you laughing at !!! Have you never seen a green tinted sky before !!!!! well come to Thessaloniki it’s practically a nightly occurrence. The cameo did help to make the feather and I did a touch of embossing and used my Spellbinders card maker rectangles to make the frame
Masterpiece Number 2
Similar squigding as on the first card just addition of some sequins and a Cameo made feather and an extra frame, I think I like the first one best.
So over to you , we would love for you to join us at ATCAS, it’s always a pleasure to see your fabulous interpretations of our code words and as usual the DT have outdone themselves. We are also delighted to welcome a new guest designer. Please put your hands together for the wonderfully talented Cathy from Cathy’s card spot
We are also most generously sponsored once again by Stamp Art Designs who are offering five digis for the winner
Now before I go I must have my little whinge otherwise it wouldn’t be a ” proper ” blog post from me but one of the reasons I have been mojo-less and a bad blogger is that I have damaged my foot in two places ( so much for my power walks ! ) I’ve been told by the bone doctor this can take up to a year to heal and he’s put me on bed rest for two months , pretty painful and I can’t sit or lie in one place for too long. The only up side of it is it’s the world cup and Wimbledon so I get to see all of the matches, don’t know what I’ll do when they finish might have to start watching day time TV !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HELP !!!!!!!
I see CASolgy have a fantastic code word this week
Its been ages since I played along with these talented ladies and do hope my floaty feather and little birdies fit the bill
Thanks for the tip Vicki it seems that my card is eligible for the “ Just Us Girls Challenge ” who’s theme week is Bird . This is my first time playing along and have seen some fabulous cards in the gallery and by the DT.
Well that’s all from me folks, wishing you all a wonderful weekend
oh Marie, how awful, I hadn’t realised this had happened. I feel for you. I would go crazy sat around however watching the Tennis would help. Thinking of you hon x And I adore the green sky and I especially love that first feather x
Loving all your squidging Hun!!! It’s so effective and I love the colourway you’ve chosen. Those ants…..sorry, birds (!) remind me of the flocks of starlings we have going over our house when they go to roost for the night on the Somerset Levels – magical sight. Have a great weekend.
Beautifully ‘squidged’ (love that word!) background! So glad you joined us at CASology this week!
Awesome Bird & Sky cards – I too prefer the 1st card. Your card also qualifies for Just Us Girls challenge this week; http://justusgirlschallenge.blogspot.com/2014/07/just-us-girls-challenge-248.html
Love the cards Marie and especially the feathers
Oh Marie – I am so sorry to hear about your foot problem – hope it improves very quickly. Your cards are unique (as always), and hey – why shouldn’t the sky be green – we have blue, white, grey and orange, so yes – I’m OK with green! Fabulous feathers and two gorgeous cards.
Take care and look after your feet (they’re precious)- hugs, Sylvia xxx
Pretty cards! Love the little birds and the feather is cool too! Thanks so much for playing along with Just Us Girls this week!
Marie, this is so thoughtful and lovely!!! Your creations always make me pull some lovely meaning for me into them!!! Thanks for sharing!! So glad that you were inspired to play in the FUN FLOAT Cue with us at CASology this week!!!!
These are both gorgeous but I guess the feather in the first card goes better with the stamped sentiment. And those bird look like birds not any at all 😉 lol
Forgotten how to stamp ay? I think a little fib there, how could you have forgotten when you come up with cards like these? BOTH fab of course.
Laid up? a good excuse to see all the tennis and football me thinks!
Hope your foot is better soon, SOOOOOOOOOO very painful, keep taking the tablets 😀 DO you know sometimes it’s OK to be fat and not have power walks – I know LOL.
Hi Marie. Two fabulous cards. Love your squidgling! 🙂 Love the black framing on both — really shows off your beautiful skies!
Sorry to hear about your foot injury … yikes, two months bed rest is a LONG TIME Take care and hope you are pain-free soon! Loll xx
These are both fabulous, Marie … your squidging is awesome, as is the green sky … the first in particular is so striking! So sorry to hear about your foot … take care of yourself … and enjoy the football (dodgy refereeing decisions and all!) Anita 🙂
Another fabulous design Marie, LOVE the colours you have used!
And I hope your foot heals real quick (at least you have an excuse not to do housework either lol)!
These are gorgeous! Your “squidged” backgrounds are amazing and love the stamping on them. Thanks for joining us at JUGS and we hope to see you again!
Very clever card Marie, such gorgeous colours.
I am so behind in my normal visiting that I’ve missed everyone’s DT “sky” posts. When I saw yours, I popped in to see your spectacular takes on the word!! I am glad to see that you named them “masterpieces” because they ARE, they truly, truly are!!
I KNEW something bad had happened! I’m so so so sorry, Marie! That sucks. It will pass, but in the meantime, it sucks so big! Would you mind if I sent you a card? Please email me your address, if you don’t mind! I’m so sorry I told you to snap out of it a few weeks ago! Please forgive me! Gentle hugs and tons of positive healing energy coming your way!!

Oh my, how elegant is this and that black feather with spots of color embossed on it – so gorgeous!!
A green sky here means that hail is coming. Run for cover!! I am SO impressed with your stamping. All those girls who have told me that you can’t stamp for…. may the rumours rest in peace… Beautiful cards, woman. The colours you achieved are nothing less than amazing! xx
Well, I’m really sorry to hear about your injury! Rest up and take care. I know it is going to be frustrating for you, but you really need to rest.
I am in love with your cards and the feathers are the perfect way to bring all the colors together. Take care!
Wow what a masterpiece. I like the birds, I never like ants.
