    My target date for mailing returns is Saturday (Monday at the latest). It turned into a busy week.

    I also finally got around to resizing this photo of the cards I made so I can post it here.

    What goregous stamps nightowl. I am SO jealous. Fab cards needless to say. These days I only buy 'Beaux Timbres' that's beautiful stamps, so that the recipients can keep them to use on cards. Our normal ones here are very boring. I also send US Global stamps in envelopes going back to the States as people there probably don't get many of them. I get dozens

    This week, in Aldi they had stamp albums for 7.95 euros each, so I went and brought two. Now, instead of little plastic pockets sorted by subject and colour, my stamps are in the albums. Mind you it took me 3 days and a very sore back/neck, but now at least they are easy to see and find. Bring on more Postage Stamp swaps I say.

    Thank you ann_stebbing
    Do you collect stamps to keep, or just to use for art? I do both. That is thoughtful of you to send back used global stamps. You are right we wouldn't get many used ones here. I wish I had bought more of the US global succulents stamps when they were on sale. The went fast. Now it's just the moon stamps that are available where I live. When I know that someone is into stamps, I try to put pretty ones on the envelope to mail, depending on what I have.

    I don't collect stamps seriously but I do love looking at them and keep them for art. The French have some fabulous ones. I particularly like ones with Chateaux on for ATCs. I use then on the card and then paint the same scene as well.

    I received my returns yesterday. I'm delighted with them. Thanks due to Oldslady and nightowl_too. I received one of my own cards but that's not a problem as I can swap it with ann_stebbing. Thank you for hosting a great swap, nightowl_too.

    Again, I'm sorry about that mixup dithespy. I'm glad you worked out a trade with ann.

    And with that it looks like this swap is done. The art was fantastic! You all did a great job on your cards! I hope you all enjoyed making you cards and receiving your returns. Hopefully you will join me in future swaps
