Week 52

Well we finally made it!! It’s week 52 and we’re late LOL! The theme this week is celebrate. You can interpret this as you like, as Sat was Christmas you might wish to do Christmas, or as this is the last week of the year maybe a New Year ATC would be your choice.

Can’t wait to see what you do!

Week 51 - Christmas Theme or Red & Green with gold or Silver

Well we really are creatures of habit. My routine was messed up last week, consequently I completely forgot about Friday! My humble apologies.
This week is a Christmas Theme, or if Christmas is not your thing, do an ATC in Red and Green with Gold or Silver.
My ATC is inspired by one on Flickr by tammybeck. The background is a Darkroom Door Stamp, the wreath is punched flowers, bird is stamped with a Prima Stamp. The gold used is a Gold pen.

Two Lovely Asians

Here are two lovely ATCs for this week's Asian theme. The first is from Marg and features an Asian lady relaxing on a chair, the background is a nice script black on white, the base is red/gold and couple of flowers finish the card.
The second one is Linda's. Her background is dark red with gold writing, a black panel with gold writing. The writing on both looks to me as if they are embossed. Then Linda has placed a gorgeous little Asian fan across her card.
Well done ladies!

Week 50 - Asian Theme

Once again, many apologies..... I do have an excuse for being late this week, it's not just laziness!
Just as well we are up to week 50, the way my promptness record has been lately! Only 2 weeks to go.
This week is an Asian theme, interpret that as you will.
My simple card is black cardstock background, some gold Asian themed 3D stickers, and a handmade flower (.... I am into making my own flowers at the moment LOL)

Zetti Girl

Week 49 A Zetti ATC

Here is Marg’s beautiful Zetti Girl. I just lot her. The wings are just lovely. Great Job Marg!

Week 49 - Try your hand at a Zetti ATC.

Sorry to be late once again! Could have posted earlier today, but we have had thunderstorms, so computer has been off.
This is my interpretation of a Zetti card. I drew all the components except the face, which was cut from a stamped image. Oh! and the flower was punched. Each piece was individually cut and glued. Bit of fun I thought!

Marg's week 48

Here is Marg's pretty card for week 48 - purple silver and green.
Marg has done each week as they come.... I think she deserves applause!

Week 48 - Colour Challenge - Silver, Purple and Green

This week is a colour challenge, using the colours Silver, Purple and Green. As usual you can use a small amount of another colour as I have with the little bit of yellow,
I have a silver scrap booking paper for the background, the waterlily and leaf have been coloured with sparkly gel pens (not that you can see the sparkle in the scan LOL). The little chipboard frogs have been done with green Opals.

A Cute Lad!

I have been meaning to post this for the last few days. It is Marg's Week 47.... a boy ATC. Isn't he a cutie? And he makes a matching pair for the girl ATC of a few weeks ago. Well done Marg!

Week 47 - This week's ATC is a Boy one

And here is my very simple (but I think cute!) little boy.
The image I found on the net which I printed and cut out, and the background is simply strips of different widths of cardstock, stuck on a piece of black cardstock .... trying to resemble a Mexican blanket. I wrote the word "Hola!" (Hello) in the top corner... and that was it.

Something fishy here!

Here is Marg's pretty fish. I love her background and the edges, and the way the fish is behind the seaweed.

Week 46 - It's all about Sea Life

This week's theme is Sea life. Interpret it as you will... can be fish, mermaids, sea horses, shells... or anything else you can think of to fit the theme!
My ATC has 2 little chipboard fish, which have been covered with Opals. One has a little flower gem inserted in the Opals. Some stuff called "Moss" for the seaweed, 2 punched and painted punchies, and some punched Lace at the to were added to the card and the finishing touch was the 2 thought bubbles.

Marg's weeks 44 and 45

I'm playing catch up! Here are 2 lovely cards from Marg.
Her week 44 was using the colours black and yellow, and is a very interesting design
Week 45 was Flowers and Marg has made a pretty posy for hers.

Week 45 - Flowers

This week the theme is a simple one.... Flowers. I have done 2 as I wanted to try the alcohol inks sunflowers which I had seen on http://stampersquest.com/2010/10/31/alcohol-ink-sunflowers/
The other card is a combination of stamping and some inked chipboard flower shapes. The centres of the flowers are a combination of bling and some things called Dew Drops. Enjoy!
