They are on there way......

Yes "Travelling" as I type - I have posted your atcs for the October Travel swap. I have seen the most fabulous atcs many of which have reminded me about stamps in my collection I have neglected LOL. There have been many modes of transport, cars, bicycles, boats, ships, planes and many places - London, New York, Paris, Italy, Eygpt - there have been maps, signs, passports and luggage labels - fantastic to see the theme has fired so much imagination.
Choosing a winner was hard but in the end I have chosen Julie Haelemeersch from Belgium. Here is Julies winning atc which will be in the shop very soon for customers to admire and take inspiration from.
I loved the use of colour and stamping to build up the layers in this atc - gorgeously finished too with those beautiful decorative corners. Here is a closer look.
A gorgeous atc Julie - I have added you a note telling you what to do next. In fact you all have a note in your swaps and a few of you have an extra bonus but all will become clear when your swaps arrive!
I have begun a thank you thread on the side bar - leaving thanks can really make someones day so is worth taking the time to do. I am really looking forward to your imaginative "Take a letter" swaps for this months theme - do scroll down to the last post to find out more.
Have fun creating your miniature works of art
