    For a chance to win all of this month's new stamp sets, please head on over to our facebook page and leave a comment on today's post.

    We are always astonished at how supportive and kind you all are and we are genuinely grateful for the time you invest in interacting with us on our social media platforms.  Jenny and I are a couple of socially awkward individuals which is why we struggle to reciprocate adequately but we cannot emphasise enough how much we appreciate you.
