We're on Instagram...

*CLOSED - WINNERS HAVE BEEN TAGGED ON INSTAGRAM*

...at last!!  Well I resisted for as long as I could but have succumbed to the phenomenon that is Instagram and to celebrate we are giving away 12 sets of 'Wish You were Here'...


This stamp set is exclusive to this giveaway and will not be available for sale!!  For a chance to win, just follow us on Instagram and leave a comment on our first ever post (which is coincidentally the above picture lol).

I can't promise there will be much to see, I am typically bad at social networking (hence the tumbleweeds on the blog, twitter and Facebook lol) but I promise I will try harder...hmm, heard that one before right? ;) tee hee

Hope you're having a wonderful week and thank you for stopping by :) xo
