Circle of Friends blog hop for Bev!


Hi everyone and welcome to our
Circle of Friends blog hop
especially for our dear DT member and friend
Bev Rochester

Unfortunately, Bev has had to take a little break from crafting over the past few months due to ill health. We are missing her here at Whimsy and want to let her know that we are thinking about her and wishing her a speedy recovery.

Even though the Whimsy family is scattered all around the world, we have come together as a circle of friends to show Bev our love and support by each making her a card. 

Although this hop is for Bev, we do hope you will hop along with us to support our wonderful teammate and friend. If you arrived here from the Whimsy Stamps blog, then you are in the right place! If you’ve happened upon this post by chance and would like to hop with us, hop on over to the Whimsy Stamps blog to begin the hop.

For my card, I decided to ink up one of our newest release stamps, September Rose, illustrated by Elisabeth Bell.  The sentiment on the tag is a combination of 2 different sentiments from the Handmade Letter Seals stamp set and reads "just to lift your spirits because you're special" which was just what I wanted to say:


Supplies
