Same applied to my crafting ... I hit the Table of Craftiness (ToC) with every intention of doing some more to that box and, instead, just look what happened ...
- ATC blank
- Snippet of white card cut to ATC size
- Stamposaurus brick stencil through which I sponged Distress Inks: fossilised amber, carved pumpkin and ripe persimmon using an egg shaped sponge
- Having removed the stencil and without re-inking the sponge I stippled colour on to the ATC background, to soften the starkness of the white card
- Using images from the Chocolate Baroque "Wisteria Lane" and Chapel Road "Vertical Greetings" and Versafine onyx black ink I added my design
- Crafters Companion Spray and Shine to set the water based inks
I'll be entering the above for the following challenges:-
- Crafty Sentiments - challenge 2nd February - ANYTHING GOES
- Through The Craft Room Door - challenge 2nd-8th February - ANYTHING GOES
- Cards und More - challenge No. 151 - ANYTHING GOES
- Creative Card Crew - challenge No. 105 - ANYTHING GOES
And then on to another ...

I'll entering this ATC for the following challenges:-
A man walks into a restaurant with a full-grown ostrich behind him. The waitress asks them for their orders. The man says, "A hamburger, fries and a coke," and turns to the ostrich, "What's
yours?" "I'll have the same," says the ostrich.
A short time later the waitress returns with the order. "That will Be $9.40 please" The man reaches into his pocket and pulls out the exact change for payment.
The next day, the man and the ostrich come again and the man says, "A hamburger, fries and a coke."
The ostrich says, "I'll have the same."
Again the man reaches into his pocket and pays with exact change.
This becomes routine until the two enter again. "The usual?" Asks the waitress. "No, this is Friday night, so I will have a steak, baked potato and a salad," says the man. "Same," says the
ostrich. Shortly the waitress brings the order and says, "That will be $32.62." Once again the man pulls the exact change out of his pocket and places it on the table.
The waitress cannot hold back her curiosity any longer. "Excuse me, Sir. How do you manage to always come up with the exact change in your pocket every time?"
"Well," says the man, "several years ago I was cleaning the attic and Found an old lamp. When I rubbed it, a Genie appeared and offered me two wishes. My first wish was that if I ever had to pay for anything, I would just put my hand in my pocket and the right amount of money would always be there."
"That's brilliant!" says the waitress. "Most people would ask for a Million Dollars or something, but you'll always be as rich as you want for as long as you live!"
"That's right..Whether it's a gallon of milk or a Rolls Royce, the exact money is always there," says the man.
The waitress asks, "What's with the ostrich?"
The man sighs, pauses and answers, "My second wish was for a tall chick with a big ass and long legs who agrees with everything I say.."
