This one should be easy for all of us to do, and it's a recycle of a long passed swap. :)

Element: Used postage stamps

You will be making 3 cards (one card each for 3 partners) using those lovely stamps that come on your swap-bot packages in the mail!

There really are some lovely stamps that come from all over the world, so start saving them now!

It must be evident that the stamps have been canceled (NO NEW STAMPS ALLOWED).

While it is not a requirement, I would really like us to challenge ourselves and try to use the stamps in different ways, rather than just sticking the stamp on the ATC.

For instance, can you alter the stamp to look like a person peering through a window, etc.? That's just one example, can you come up with more?

The swap image was found on the ArtyFax blog here

Any questions, please pm me directly.

Start saving those stamps!

To many partners in this one, I prefer 2 partners and sending 2 ATC's to each.

@mypoohbear60 so you'd rather make 4 cards than 3?

I like having more swap partners, and receiving one atc from different people, rather than getting two from one person.

Everyone is different, yes? :)
