Trumpets begin to sound... and then... pause

Yes, it's true... I've hit a small glitch with setting up the shipping, so my store opening will be delayed a few hours. :( This is a steep learning curve I'm on, so I hope you'll bear with me. In the interest of fairness, since initial quantities are very limited, I'll set the new time for opening to be 12:00 pm Pacific rather than just open when I get the problem fixed. I'm pretty sure I can have it resolved by then!

In the meantime, I have something to entertain and inspire you! Many of my dear friends have very kindly created cards with some of the stamps being released today... you'll mostly see Little Frieda, but there's a smattering of Claire Brennan's wonderful images, too. I didn't have kits in time for the ladies to use with Claire's images, but you'll see how versatile the images are... workable with lots of patterned paper you already have on hand, and they will continue to delight even after you've used up everything in the kit!

Which reminds me... some of you might be wondering if Claire's images will be sold separately. The answer is not at this time. They will only be sold as part of the corresponding kit. But that doesn't mean that at some point, after all the corresponding kits have been exhausted, they won't pop up for sale individually!

You'll also catch sight of Little Frieda's Flowers, the stamp I haven't previewed yet on my blog. I meant to do that, but got buried in bagging up kits and stamps...another learning curve... that takes a bit longer than I thought it would, probably because the labor I employ (i.e., the sons of The Craft's Meow) are reluctant participants... a bit like herding cats! lol

Anyway, here are links to the blogs of the Friends of the Craft's Meow (in no particular order), to whom I'm eternally grateful!

Tip: if you want to navigate back and forth between my blog and these links so that you don't lose your place, use Control+Click. One of these days I'll figure out the HTML code to make it happen automatically. Another thing for my to-do list! lol

And, yes, I will reveal the winner of the 72-piece Copic Marker Set later today as well, so stay tuned!

Thanks for your patience... I'll see you back here in a bit!
