Quintiles - April

Well, my last lot of Quintiles went missing, ggrrrr Royal Mail.

What was really annoying though, was that I had my April ones in the same envelope and two lots of large stamps. It was too late to submit another lot for March (and I missed out on receiving a set back), but I have done a second lot of April.

The theme for April was "April Fool". We have to use Chocolate Baroque stamps so it was a bit of a challenge to say the least.

I was looking through an old Gardening Catalogue, from 1934, and  thought the names of some of the plants were really interesting and wondered if there was a plant named April Fool - and there was! It was a snowdrop and Chocolate Baroque recently bought out a lovely set of spring stamps so I was OK!
So I have redone my tile and in my haste posted it without taking a picture, so this is the original one which is similar!

Looking forward to receiving my swap (fingers crossed)

This is lovely Sandra, what a great idea. The snowdrop stamps are lovely and the background script is interesting and informative.
What a shame that your original tiles got lost in the post, it must have been very disappointing.

This is such a super idea & I love the way you have aged the main panel. Such a pity that your submissions went missing - we always take our post to the main post office now.
