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 Heidy'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 decided to ink up 'Sweet Little Donkey' from Meljen's Designs:

This cutie was colored using Copics. The sentiment is from Whimsy's 'Everyday Circle Postmarks' set. The DP is from Whimsy's Designer Paper's 'Feeling Fruity'. The photo corners are made using a Martha Stewart Punch. Another CAS-style card. I really like the clean and simple look at the moment :-) 




The inside is decorated as well. The stamp I used here is from the Simple Everyday Greetings.

So now it's time for you to hop over to Shelby's blog. 

Finally, here is a full hop list in hopping order: 


Thanks so much for stopping by today!

I hope you are feeling better soon, Bev! We miss you here at Whimsy!
Thinking of you!



Hugs,
