Sad news just in that Dawn lost her long fight with cancer recently.  Deepest sympathy goes out to all her friends and family.Continue

Non-denominational 2nd class and 1st class stamps are always valid, Martha, whatever price you paid for them. 2nd class costs 66p now. 1st class, 85p. But if you bought them when they were cheaper and they have not been used, you can use them.

Second class stamps are surely OK? I bought lots of them years ago

Yes, a bit of a shock.  Luckliy I found out last December so bought a big stack of 2nd class  stamps along with my Xmas stamps.  The PO is sneaky like that!  I might be using carrier pigeon from now on!

Does everybody know that PO prices have changed since January 1st? I did not, the PO could have found a way to make it public. I nearly sent my next batch with less postage than the necessary.

Thanks Jennifer, This is great. I will be taking part once I get the time to commit to it, it does look great.

Hi Martha, many thanks for this and the advice. I will have a think and send something over.

This is DDellafiora's address Amanda. You submit 40 pages of toilet paper with the same artwork on each. I found that rubberstamping is the easiest thing to do. I have no idea how Jennifer got such a beautiful and complicated picture to work so well.
