Whimsy Stamps Circle of Friends Blog Hop

Welcome to the Circle of Friends Blog Hop! If you have arrived here from Linda'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.

I have two Whimsy creations especially for dear Annika....

The first is last week's Sketch Saturday DT card using Love in a Bucket and Friendship Ticket Sentiments rubber stamps.  I had already made this card before I heard Annika's sad news, but when I heard what had happened, I really wanted to send it to her.  "Sending hugs" to you, dear girl! 

And the second is a card I made especially for Annika.  I've already posted it on my blog earlier today, as I followed today's new Sketch Saturday sketch.  I used Whimsy Stamps Kenny K Collection- All That rubber stamp.  Although I have never 'met' Annika, I imagine her to be cool, fresh and funky, and definitely "all that". And I hope this will bring a smile to her face!

If you know Annika and would like to make a creation for her please go to the end of the hop at Denise's blog and link a card, then email Crystal at crystalkbk30 at gmail dot com to privately give you her address.

This hop will end on 5th February at 12pm (EST) so you have enough time to create a card!!

Thanks so much for hopping along with us today! Your next stop on the hop is Patricia's blog.
