W for White +1
This is probably just about as far as you could go.
A simple stamp and sentiment. The sentiment is a little clear stamp from Personal Impressions.
The image stamp is from Stampin' Up, I bought a couple of sets of retired stamps from an eBay seller in the US.
The package value was the equivalent of £18.43.
It was selected by our Customs people and I had to pay £3.83 VAT and... wait for it ... £8 handling charge. Apparently my package was worth 43p more than the accepted allowance and so the charge was incurred. On a different day, with the fluctuation of the exchange rate it may well have been within the parameters of acceptability, but not on this occasion. I did wonder about ringing them but decided to save myself the cost of the phone call, as I probably wouldn't have got anywhere anyway!
Hey Ho! I shall remember the limit the next time I make an overseas purchase!
