I have managed to complete my ATC's for The Craft Barns 4th Quotes and Lyrics Challenge today despite my Mojo taking a day off without telling me.........!! The words for this challenge were
 Marriage/and or Age. Here is what I managed to struggle to come up with.

The first two are song Lyrics for "Marriage" not very original but Mojo was very absent!!  Backgrounds are some papers which I had left over from another project which had been splattered with distress stains, I then used some small Tim Holtz stamps all over these in various light colours ...so light they are not showing up in photo...... :( 
Heart was punched from card which had had the wrinkle free technique all from  my bits and bobs box, over stamped with the same stamps as background.  Male and female stamp is a free one from Craft Stamper Magazine last year.

These two ATCs are age Quotes
Backgrounds as above this time they were stamped over with black archival and Tim Holtz ATC stamps.  Quotes were printed on a label machine.
All ATCs were cut with the Sizzix Alterations Bigz ATC die and corners.

Not a good afternoon crafting but at least I managed to complete the challenge and with just a few hours spare no time to try again later........hope Mojo comes back soon!!

'till next time


  1. Love all of these Maggie. I had the love and marriage song in mind when I first saw the challenge and now I am singing it again lol

    Looks like your mojo is back:)

    Love Chrissie xx

  2. Have to admit I struggled to find a quote that zapped a picture in my head of what I wanted to do but you've made some great ATCs. That song is now stuck in my head again!!.

  3. Mojo or not they're pretty good and on time so relax... The background technique is very effective plus it uses scraps... all good!

  4. Great ATCs, love the backgrounds on them all but especially the age quote ATCs.

    Sylv xx

  5. Your cards all made me smile! I like the quotes and using up leftover bits is also fun!

  6. I think your mojo was there really, these are all fabulous! I used the 'love and marriage' song too! xx

  7. You've made some lovely ATCs, whether your mojo was missing or not. You can truly be proud of yourself. They are all lovely.

  8. Wow, fabulous ATC's loving the colours and the quote and lyrics are perfect :-) xxx

  9. These are gorgeous ATCs Maggie! Great collage work and I love the vibrancy too. Have a great week. Chris xxx

  10. WOW you went overboard this time, loving your ATCs. I think perhaps you meant to put "you're" instead of "your" on the tree one though. Super ATC's BJ

  11. If this is what you can do without your mojo...........they are fabulous.


  12. They're delightful, Maggie - love the layers and the life in the first two - they don't seem Mojo-less to me at all! - and the quotes are great against the fab backgrounds on the second pair.
