May Swaps are ready to post!

Hi All - May's swaps are now ready to find their way to you - utterly gorgeous every single one of them. Now this months winner has been chosen not just for composition but for amazing use of colour. I have actually met this young artist in real life and have to say I think she is one of the most talented crafters I know. So a big round of applause for Belle Weimer!

Belle attended the Lovin' ink craft retreat in March and is also a regular visitor to The Stamp Man shop - always with an eye for a bargain she is extremely creative and is also only 9 years old! She also shares a craft room with her wonderfully talented Mum so has access to all kinds of media which she is very creative at using. Belle returns to the States later this summer so I am really glad she played along with us this time so some of you get to see and own this gorgeous work. So well done Belle. You get to choose a future theme and the atc will be proudly displayed in the shop for all to see!

As always the work you put in was wonderful - we had 26 people playing along this time which is fantastic. I do hope you like the pieces of art I have chosen for you and I have begun a thank you thread for you to leave your appreciation comments on.

Lisa will be back in a week or so to share more DT inspiration with you for our current swap which is trees so looking forward to seeing those very soon.

Take care and happy crafting!
