April swaps posted

Hi All and sorry for the late posting but I think we all know the technical difficulties over the last few days with blogger.

We had 29 people playing along with the bird theme atc swap and some wonderful atcs too. Thanks so much for your Raks and wonderful notes - it feels like I have lots of penpals!

For the winning atc I have gone for something that stood out the most so here it is by Andrea Heath.

Andreas atcs were all a little different but included real bird feather which I thought was a wonderful touch. So well done Andrea - instructions are in your swap envelope.

All the swaps were posted today so should begin to arrive maybe even as early as tomorrow. I was late doing the swap as we needed to wait for some international swaps to arrive - I think the chance to swap with folks overseas is definately worth waiting for and hope you agree.

Don't forget to add your thanks to the thread on the sidebar its always nice to know where your art has found a home.

The friendship swaps are rolling in so do keep them coming for what is bound to be another wonderful themed swap.

Happy crafting everyone.

May swap - Friendship

Hello and welcome to another month of the Stamp Man atc swap. So sorry we are a day late we have all been really busy with the bank holiday festivities that time ran away from us!

Hope you all enjoyed the gorgeous weather and spectacular Royal Wedding - didn't they both look so radiant and happy?

Before I move on to the DT inspiration don't forget The Stamp Man has an open day on Saturday 21st May - This is going to be a brilliant day with make and takes and bargains galore in the sale room. I can certainly promise you a huge welcome and crafty goodies you will love so if you can make it then we would love to see you there.

So onto Mays atc swap. This month the theme is friendship. Here is a little inspiration from the design team - more to come later in the month.
