ATC Swappers - April Fool

How's this for ultra-organised - I've already made my swaps for the April swap over on the ATC Swappers Blog! I know it's not like me to be that organised. This month's theme is


so we're expecting a lot of funny and humorous images.

My ATCs are a design I've used before and liked it so much that I made some more but this time I made 5 so that I can keep one myself. I used a Cuddly Buddly Teddy Jester as my main image. There's some printing on linen card with some chalking - well it wouldn't be mine otherwise would it!!!

If you want to participate in the swap then visit the blog for all the info - it's really easy to join in and the ATCs that are swapped are great.

I also wanted to thank Betty over at Betty's Crafting Burbles for giving me the 'Spreader of Love' award. This is given to someone who's blog you enjoy and she wrote such lovely things about me - "As I'm doing this I'm listening to some cheerful music emanating -phew- from Paul's Crafty Blogocks blog and I've decided he certainly deserves this award for cheering up everyone, for introducing me to so many great blogs, for teaching me how to use publisher properly, for being a hardworking teacher (what a class to be in!), for loving climbing what an endless list."

She also left me a lovely poem which I really enjoyed reading and have printed out a copy of it. She knows how much I enjoy climbing and the poem encapsulates the feelings you get when on a route I thought I'd post you a pic of me doing my hardest ever route as the lecturer waited half way up to take a pic of me - my face shows extreme fear and you only have to look at the holds for my hands and feet to see why). Please take the time to visit her blog and read the poem, you don't need to be a climber to appreciate it lol. THANKS.

Now I need to pass it on and spread it further. I'm going to give it to HAZEL as she has been a dedicated follower of my ATC Swap, creates wonderful work and is often the first to comment on my new posts.
