ATC Swap!

Hi guys and I hope you have had a wonderful rest on the Easter break. We all had a fab Easter here in  our house, apart from the rain it hasn't stopped all day today (Monday) typical B.H. for England. Any way I wasn't going to share this swap with you until I also got Wendy's swap however, something completely bizarre has happened.

Wendy kindly agreed to do a swap with me because the swap club she helps run only swaps in USA & Canada. And I was so looking forward to joining in. She suggested we do a swap together on the months theme which was 'Springtime in Paris'.

And these were the ATCs I sent her along with a wee gift bag. Now the wonderful Customs and Exercise people decided to a) open and search my parcel and b) take two of the ATCs for them self!  How shocking?

I have no idea why they would do such a thing nothing living or against the rules as far as I am aware although I did put a few lavender flower specks in to give the parcel a nice smell but why would they then send some of the parcel and not all of it? As all the ATCs were wrapped in the same sealed packet? I am baffled. Any way Wendy I am so sorry about this I have no Idea why they would do such a thing. Any way here is a view of those I sent to you. 

Have any of you had your ATCs taken. I have to say this isn't the first time it's happened to me I lost a full set I sent in a swap in the UK the envelope never arrived at all. I think we have some postys who can't resist a bit of pocket art. Love Dawn xx

Sorry you lost your ATCs at the customs. I often have to go to the customs to collect my things, but have not lost anything yet. It just sometimes takes an awful long time till things arrive! Have a good week, hugs, Valerie

Oh my, I had read that your ATC's went missing then read Wendy post. Thank goodness she received all of them. I have heard of others losing things in the mail. Its such a shame.
Beautiful ATC's. I'm sure she is thrilled!
