February swaps are ready to post

Sorry I have been late getting round to doing the swap - Ian did drop them off before last weekend however as it has been the Lovin' Ink craft retreat I was a little tied up.
(Retreat pics can be seen here)
However when I opened them today I was wowed with your inventiveness for the theme.
This one really caught my eye made by Pam Harrison so I chose this to be the winner for February.

How fabulous to see Victoria and Albert a historical love story we all know about.
Gorgeous Pam - hope you enjoy your extra atcs from Michelle and the altered slide mailer art from me.
We had atcs from 14 swappers this month with total of 45 atcs so thanks for playing along with us.
Just to remind you in these cost saving times you need 1 large letter stamp on the sending and receiving envelope - I noticed at least 2 had 2 large letter stamps so its costing you more than it needs to send and receive. Any questions just ask at the Post Office.
All the swap info can be found in the side bar and the thank you thread with a list of those received is on the pages bit on the right too.
So hope you are having fun with the Hopes and Dreams atcs - a few arrived already.
The themes for the rest of 2012 are now in the left sidebar.
Happy Crafting

Hopes and Dreams

Hi Everyone

Janet is really busy with retreat work at the moment, so it's me Brenda posting the new ATC challenge for this month which is -

With Spring in the air and the promise of warmer weather to come for us here in the northern hemisphere - what hopes and dreams do you have for this year?

My dream is to go to Paris. I have never been and have wanted to for a long time.
So my ATC is flavoured with that theme.

Brenda used
Tim Holtz stamps
Tim Holtz Paper Stash Lost and Found and Vintage Shabby

Many thanks Brenda!
Here are my 3 swaps for March which the winner will receive in their envelope for the March swap

Have fun x Janet


Prompted by Brenda's dream of visiting Paris, my dream is to visit Italy, I think it would be a disaster for the diet though, as I love Italian food!

I used an Artemio Stamp Set -Artemio Clear Stamp Set - Italy - 10001235

The February swaps will be sorted soon and on their way back to you.

Have fun and enjoy the theme.
