Circle of Friends Hop


Welcome to the Circle of Friends Blog Hop If you have arrived from Jackie'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.
Here is the creation I made for my dear friend and dt sister.......
I wanted to send big hugs to my friend, a gal I've never met, but who always brightens my day:)  I just love this little digi cutie from Elisabeth Bell.  I added Whimsy ticket sentiments and the life defined background stamp as well.  The papers I received in a swap so I don't know what they are, but they had a vintage feel which reminded me of Annika.  Big Hugs to you my dear!!!
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 to privately give you her address.
This hop will end on February 5, noon Eastern time so you have enough time to create a card for friend!!
Thanks so much for hopping along with us today!!!  Your next stop on the hop is the one and only Chris Olsen!!!!!!!!!

Such a wonderful card - the image is totally sweet and I love the brown tones and general vintage feel of it. I'm sure Annika could feel the hug coming at her across the miles. Such a wonderful, comforting thing to do for her!
