ATCAS Challenge #42 Sky

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……..

ATCAS - code word sky

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

Week 102 - FloatIts 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.

Crafty Cardmakers and More #108 Black and White

Hello lovely ladies

I told you all I would be dinging your in-boxes a lot this week and true to my word here I am.

Today is really special for me as I have rejoined the team at Crafty Cardmakers after a longggggggggg absence. Last year I had to resign from the team due to some health issues with family and friends but the lovely Lin the owner asked me to rejoin the team and I accepted. Now there are lots of changes firstly the name , we are now know as Crafty Cardmakers and More and our format has been slightly altered  and we’ve had a bit of a facelift ( could do with one of those myself ) We will even be having a mixed media challenge for all of you ladies who like to get down and dirty ! so do pop over to CCM and More to find out all of the details.

This fortnights theme has been chosen by the lovely Kim and it just so happens to be one of joy favorites ,  Black and White yay !


I used the memory Box large Circle Burst , for the circle of course and the gorgeous owl , I’m afraid I haven’t got a clue who this little guy belongs too as I threw out the packaging a long time ago !  The flower embellishment in the corner is made from black UTEE that I created from one of the molds I made. Yep I know I made a card without using my Cameo ( still used die cuts though lol )

I do hope you can join us at Crafty Cardmakers and More why not pop over and see what the rest of the  talented DT have been up to and find out about our new format.

I do hope you can join us at Crafty Cardmakers and More ,why not pop over and see what the rest of the  talented DT have been up to and find out about our new format.
