Circle of Friends Blog Hop

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 Tammy Louise's 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 creation, I have a card using one of the Whimsy Prints precolored and die cut images from the set Love and Friendship. I have not had much time for crafting lately and my coloring skills have suffered, so it was great to be able to use one of these beautifully precolored images. All the Elisabeth Bell Whimsy Prints are colored by the super talented Simonne Clay! I also used some Designer Grunge 6x6 papers and the Elegant Butterflies Dies, Double Scallop Doily Die, Country Heart Die, and Vines Die Set, all available from Whimsy Stamps.



In case you missed any part of the hop today, here is a full hop list in hopping order:

I am actually the last stop on the hop, so you have reached the end. We all hope to have brought some smiles to our dear friend Bev. We are all thinking of you sweetie and hoping you'll be back soon. Sending huge hugs!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Lovely card Denise, sure to make Bev smile! Thank you so much for doing this hop for Bev. She's so been on my heart and mind and her blog won't accept anymore comments now. We must have filled her comments box with well wishes! So it's really special that you and the Whimsy DT have taken time to send love and well wishes to Bev. If you're speaking with her, let her know there are many more of us crafty crew who wish love and a speedy recovery. Hugs, Wends x
