Claire Don't Worry - Be Happy!

As you may or not know, Waltzingmouse recently issued a new release of stamps.  Due to unforeseen circumstances from the manufacturer shipments have been delayed for 3 weeks or so.  I know we are all disappointed that our orders have been cancelled, and that we won't be able to get our hands on these lovelies for a little while longer.   
 
Most of all I know Claire's heart must be broken - these are her babies after all.  And I know she would never want to disappoint us in any way.  A fellow blogger, and Waltzingmouse fan,  Nerina from A Creative Inkling, came up with a fantastic idea to honor Claire.   Nerina is asking for a show of solidarity - that fellow Waltzingmouse fans consider making something to honor Claire for her creativity, kindness, and honest to goodness integrity.   If you'd like to participate or see some of the projects from other friends of Waltzingmouse who feel the same way you can get all the details here.
I thought this sentiment was appropriate for the circumstances. I know Claire will shine through this, and that the stamps will be worth the wait. Cheers to you Claire!

Hugs!
Jeanne

I really like the two different doilies layered over the lace Jeanne...the pretty rosebud was a pretty touch to use with this tea-themed card. I love that sentiment. Claire will love this card.

What a DELIGHTFUL card! I love all of the beautiful details you've included - especially the two hanging tags (they remind me of tea bag tags :0)! Thank you for making a card for Claire - I have to agree, she will shine through this!

Now I've been all over and read all the blogs and I think I'm spun up on the situation; which totally stinks, BUT, like you said, she is a strong lady and she really continues to sing. This card is perfect for her. Nicely done Jeanne. :)
