:lol: :lol: :lol: Stamp Fairy and the Minions! LOVE IT! nearly choked on my tea laughing at the thought of that!!!!!

. . . although there's probably some copyright issues about the Minions, so maybe it should be the Stamp Fairy and the Apprentices perhaps? All the Apprentices could be in big bushy false beards, wearing oversized dungarees and smoking pipes . . . any cussin' and swearin' is optional :lol: :wink:

I'd love to see Reb dressed up like this! It could be done a whole sheet too, sort of like the Blue Bernard....and rainbow coloured with various faces

My LBEs arrived with these on the cover. Not only 'old' stamps but a frank that doesn't seem to be in the catalogue - wasn't this used on the Fanny postcard?

This means another dive into the Stamp Box next time I visit the shop.

Oooooo, am very jealous! I hope I get that frank on my envelope too as that frank was used before I became a collector and, having looked through the franks on Steve's catalogue, I've missed some corkers!

***for the stamps, not the beard!


Well I've never seen Bernard in a tu-tu but we can always hope. :D
It might look something like this:

Advice please! What does the Stamp Fairy do to you if he thinks you've been naughty??? and how do you get back in his good books?

Yippeeee the postman came bearing gifts! The Stamp Fairy isn't cross with me after all !! :D

In my LBEs I got the sport of the Penny Copper and 2 sports of the TMR Watch House :D :D :D I also got a sport of the Thieves' Guild and colour variations of the 25p Sgt John Keel (has areas that are slightly lighter and yellowy-green, rather than a uniform dark green) and the Dr Whiteface (the background on the left hand side is much whiter than the right which is the usual cream).

Despite the shop stating very clearly that there is no sport stamp on the Sgt John Keel sheet, I still found myself checking just in case (couldn't help myself, sorry! :roll: ), when I realised that my sheet only has horizontal perforations and no vertical ones, so even though there is no sport stamp, I have a sport sheet . . . . and not a bugger-up at all !!! :lol: :wink:

What did everyone else get?

No worries, m'dear, I have 0.2% extra stamp sheet that no one else has - although, crivens! that means I owe you 1.6p . . . . er . . . I might have to saw a bit off a 2p coin . . . :lol:
