Stamp Club – January 2018

Last night at Hailsham Stamp Club we had our first ATC swap of the year. The theme for this month set by myself was WINTER. I am delighted with the beautiful cards I received. I think that they perfectly reflect the varied artistic styles of our members. Can you spot my card?  Next month we are… Continue reading Stamp Club – January 2018
