Here comes summer

hopefully on its way to you!
Sorry I am late posting I have been trying to hold off as I have had printer problems and wanted to add my usual note to the swap but with no solution on the horizon I think Id best just send them on without.

Here is the fab winner - Jean Straw whose gorgeous atc just reminds us of what summer should be about - blue skies, the summer sun and holidays.

Thanks for playing along folks as always a pleasure to see your lovely creations.
Scroll down for inspiration from this months swap of "precious metals"

Please leave thanks in the thanks page where a list of the atcs received is too.

Happy Crafting

August swap - precious metals

This was a perfect choice for the atc swap for 2 reasons this month - firstly it ties in with the main challenge blog theme so perfect for left over bits and bobs but also to link with the Olympic games this month and all the medals which will be won.
So where to find inspiration?
First place I looked was my red, white and blue box where I have put bits together to influence my British projects including  fab book I got for Christmas full of Britishness!
 rooting around I found lots of bits and bobs and along with some chocolate coin wrappers from my Neice and Nephews visit a few weeks ago an idea was born.

Isn't card candi fab???
The stamp man stock oodles of sets if you need to stock up here.
I thought it just finished off my atcs perfectly.

Here is some inspiration from Angela too.

Check out the atc swap rules in the right hand side bar and I look forward to seeing your lovely swaps
