Circle of Friends blog hop for Annika...

Welcome to the Circle of Friends Blog Hop If you have arrived from Ann'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.......

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 crystalkbk30@gmail.com 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 Linda's blog.


Card info: Annika is one of the most talented colourers in blogland. I could never hold a candle to it so I went with an image which only required minimal colouring and Jelly bean is so adorable he always cheers me up. I coloured with prismacolours. I am entering these challenges....Pals Paper Arts - bows, Paper Play -– layer it up, Paper Pretties - sewing, Simon Says Stamp - animal antics, Paper Take Weekly - SKETCH, Top Tip Tuesday - fabulous flowers, Fuzzy Wuzzy - animal, anything goes.
