Sniff, and I got up special and everything (no timeout errors- no other orders, was going through checkout, just didn't evidently do so fast enough). Well that's me done. I'm going back to bed.

:( Huge hugs Kel! It was insane.

Yes, Grace, thanks from me too! Without your tip I don't think I would have gotten any.

Oh waily, waily, waily! One second there were 200, the next second I had 2 in my shopping cart, and by the time I clicked on the PayPal button they were all gone. [sob] :(

Has no-one else noticed that the 'Penny Moist' sheets have also disappeared?

Wow. Firstly, a massive thank you to all of you for the support you've shown us. We're very sorry to anyone left disappointed. We do our very best to please as many people as possible. We still have the anniversary of the release of Going Postal to look forward to in September (?) and plenty more stampy goodness to look forward to in our tenth year!
For those of you who bagged a batch, we really hope you will enjoy your purchases. Thanks again all. Happy birthday to us all :)

We will process the orders as fast as we can, it may take us a day or two longer than usual, so please bare with us.

A special thank you to all who risked their precious checkout moments by writing kind comments on their orders, and a super special thank you for the birthday cards we received!

Yup same here. Limited editions are stressful, especially when ordering on a phone at work. Luckily I got my order in but I definitely see the benefit of a season pass now

Wow! I bought one before the 2nd batch was released, just so I wouldn't have to think of it while trying to get the LBEs. I didn't realize until I read this, then went back and looked, that they were limited to only 200. :shock: Really glad I didn't wait. I could have lived with it if I didn't get the LBEs, but I had a serious Want for that sheet. I went all drooly when I saw it in the email. :oops: One of those times when I'm so glad there's a whole internet between myself and the rest of you. :lol:

Hugs Jean! :( Really sorry!
