For Claire

There's a wee mouse in Ireland who is struggling a bit with some trials at the moment. Claire Brennan is the purveyor of all good things at Waltzingmouse Stamps and it seems her manufacturer has let her down this weekend on the shipment of goods for her August release.
These things happen. That's life. But Claire is devoted to her customers and feels badly about letting them down. And in turn, we feel badly for her.
Nerina said it best on her blog, which asks us to post a card for sweet Claire to boost her spirits and let her know we understand.


Here's my card. I think it is appropriate for the occasion, and for Claire, who has remained lovely in the face of adversity. And let's not forget, people, it's just stamps!! They will be released soon, and in the meantime, we can pull out some oldies, but goodies, like these stamps from Afternoon Tea and Ovals - Classic Frames. Why not make a card for Claire and link to Nerina's blog today?

What a beautiful card, and your sentiments are so true. Kind of you to do this for Claire. I'd better get cracking myself.

HA! I loved your comment on my blog today!!

Thanks so much for such a huge compliment... I do love to stamp a background here and there, and it's so funny because I always gravitate towards stamping them, yet I can't stop myself from buying loads of DP too!!
