January Swaps are in the post!

Hi All and thank you for playing along with The Stamp Man atcs swaps again. We had 20 players this time with some fabulous interpretations of Rhymes and Tales. This is the one I have chosen as a winner this month mainly because it transported me back to childhood and watching The Secret Garden on the BBC children's series. I can just see the sulky girl discovering the secret garden with all its magical moments.

well done Jean Straw - lovely layered stamping - one of my favourite techniques - and the addition of the key charm makes it just that bit more magical. A gorgeous piece of art.
As always our winner gets to choose a future theme and has a DT atc in their return swaps - this month from the talented Michelle.
So this months theme is steampunk and we have already received 2 lots of atcs! Hoping to see lots more too.
Happy crafting and this month I have added a thanks thread!
