You have done the image practice lima34 though I highly recommend you use a scanner rather than a phone or tablet for images. Much more stamp friendly.

Now follow rules 2A and 2B to claim your gift.

Hi John,


I replied to your message over the weekend. As for the problem of you not having received it, I think we should ask the site administrator. I am very grateful for your generosity and I have now forwarded the message. I hope you will receive it. Thank you very much.

Dear Uboro.R.O.

Thank you ever so much for sending me the wonderful lunar new year FDCs! They are so beautiful, and the envelope itself was also nicely stamped. :) You really made my day!

I am yet to send you something nice in return, apologies for the long delay. Due to a difficult personal situation, I need some time to get on my feet and into swapping and collecting again. But I certainly have not forgotten you. :)

Thank you very much. And I'm sorry, I thought that because the word "gift" was in red, these items had already been ordered by someone.

Hi ebormelo! You're correct in that Gift #113 is still available.

However, it looks like you're just beyond the 30 days limit on these things. Darn!
1) Be a new Stampboards member, with at least 10 posts at the time of claiming their Gift, and have been a member for at least 7 days, and not more than 30 days, when making the request - one of which posts must be in the "Roll Call" thread, that all members must introduce themselves on - https://tinyurl.com/RollCallSB
No doubt I'll be offering other freebies elsewhere on these boards – keep an eye out! What do you collect?
