Circle of Friends Blog Hop

Welcome to the Circle of Friends Blog Hop! If you have arrived from Sandra's blog you are in the right place, if not you may want to start at Crystal's Blog so you don't miss anything along the way.

Our Circle of Friends hop is to show our dear friend Annika Ryan that her Whimsy Family is here for her during this difficult time. Everyone needs a circle of friends, and sometimes, during those hard moments, you need to be placed in the center of that circle and be given a big group hug.  Though we may be miles away, our hearts are with her along with our support.

Today we all have made her a creation to show her how much we care. Please hop along with us to Support our Wonderful Teammate and Friend Annika
She'll be receiving this card that I made for her. 
 I used my new Dance of Love digital image that I illustrated for Whimsy Stamps.  This is the original colour version I did for them that you can also buy as a pre-coloured digital image.  I used Copics.  Sorry, no colour list today. 
The die cuts are all Spellbinders dies that I kept in the die and sponged with Barn Door Distress Ink. 

 If you know Annika and would like to make a creation for her please go to the end of the hop (Denise's Blog)  and link a card, then email Crystal at and she will give you her mailing address.

This hop will end on February 5, noon Eastern time so you have enough time to create a card for our friend!!

 Your next stop on the hop is Stephanne. 

Thank you so much for visiting today!
