Hogswatch LBE . . .

Postby Grace Speaker » Mon Nov 23, 2015 05:24 pm

Dear Hogfather,

I have been a very good* girl this year** and would really, really like some lovely LBEs for Hogswatch with lots of lovely, pretty, sticky bits of paper in them :D
If you could arrange for some of those sticky bits of paper to be triangular shaped, or be sports, novelties, or Bernard's Bees or doodlings I would be very grateful.

Also, can you give any hint of when a Hogswatch LBE or two might become available ? :wink: :bounce:

Thank you in advance,

Grace Speaker

We've got a list. We've checked it twice... we know what you did last summer.

There WILL be a limited edition Hogswatch LBE released. We'll give you as much notice as possible (at least a few days). It'll contain all sorts of goodies. I can't tell you too much at this stage, but they will be an on-line exclusive for those of you wondering.

There will be triangles,
there will be prizes,
there will be original paintings to win,
there will be sports and, yes...
There will be three new stamps!

Sounds Wonderful!
Please don't put them online until we get home from visiting you at the weekend? It would be terrible for them to all sell out whilst some of us were offline! :?

Eeep- I went to buy some of the old LBE because it's been a while and I wanted something to tide me over and they are gone! Now I really need Hogswatch release... :D

That might not be all bad - on the plus side, it means you have more funds to buy extra limited edition Hogswatch LBE's and increase your chances of sports, triangles and PRIZES!! :wink: :thumbl:

The stamps look fabulous! I can't wait to see them in their glory!
And I can feel an LBE frenzy coming on...
Looks like it's going to be an expensive week... :D
