Many moons ago....I got some stamps from lord only knows where! At some stage this winter, when I was plotting & planning to while away the hours that I was forced to spend on my own and far away from all my crafting stuff, I had this daft idea that I could use all those small animal stamps to either make some inchies or ATCs.  

More moons passed, the inchies were stamped & coloured but that was it! What next? They needed something to tie them all together....

Then, this weekend, a girlfriend came round bearing gifts. The children that she works with had been marbling with oil & paints and she had rescued 7 sheets of lovely paper that had been heading for the bin! She figured she knew someone that would have a use for it!!!

I managed to get enough (almost) out of one sheet for this set of ATCs, added the appropriate sounds for the various creatures, did some random stamping with lids, paw prints,drips, bird tracks....the horseshoes are hand drawn! A fun project that I shall probably pass on to the grandchildren & then this morning I read that TIOT this fortnight is all about must be fate :-)
