Circle of Friendship Blog Hop



Welcome to the Circle of Friends Blog Hop! Thank you so much for joining us today!

If you have arrived from Anneke'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. If you have been hopping all along with us, you have reached the end of our hop today. We thank you so much for being here with us to support a wonderful friend and crafter!

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.

Here is the creation I have created especially for Annika using the stamp Love in a Bucket. This sweet image always makes me smile and so I hope it will bring a smile to Annika's face too!

I've used Curio papers from BG and lots of distressing and vintage elements. This is my first card without coloring an image, not sure if I will do it again, but it does create a very different effect. I've embellished with ribbon, flowers, brads, pearls, and a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps.

If you know Annika and would like to make a creation for her please link your card in the linky feature below, then email Crystal at crystalkbk30@gmail.com, privately and she will give you Annika's mailing info.

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

Thanks so much for hopping along with us today!!! Sending you GIANT hugs Annika!
