Postage People

I had such a blast last year, taking part in Marion's Bird People ATC swap, and therefore was delighted to hear that she was once again hosting an ATC swap, this time with the theme POSTAGE PEOPLE REVISITED. The idea is to use postage stamps to create people with. For a while I thought I wouldn't be able to take part because I had no postage stamps in my little craftavan. But, last Sunday I came across a postage stamp stall at a brocante! How lucky was that? I managed to get some stamps with heads on, yay. It took me ages to find bodies to go with the stamps though, I think I may have added a few more grey hairs, lol.

Here are my POSTAGE PEOPLE -







I hope you all had a great weekend, filled with fun and laughter, lots of crafting and treasure hunting, and I also hope that the new week will bring you lots of pleasure.

Wow, Liz, these are fantastic! I picked up a huge haul of stamps for peanuts a couple of years ago at a vide grenier so I will definitely give this a go. You have been so clever with them!
