Gilly: *phew* I dodged the horse radish bullet....feeling a LOT better today :wave1: I think I'm going to live *yippeeeeeee* :sun: Oct 9, 2019 8:21:03 GMT *
mistero: Yaaaaaay you are alive ! Oct 9, 2019 18:49:38 GMT
mistero: Also : I've got an idea for a new thread but I don't know where to post it. The idea is to tell (one by one) about the stamps we use and what does it represent. For example, I am now using stamps representing French architectural and culinary patrimonial. Oct 9, 2019 18:51:32 GMT
