Circle of Friendship Blog Hop for Annika

Welcome to the Circle of Friendship Blog Hop

If you've come here from Chris' blog, then you're on the right track.  If not please start at Crystal's blog to make sure you haven't missed anyone's gorgeous creations for Annika.

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 teammate and friend Annika.  I'm sure a lot of you know her and a lot of you know her as a colorful, wonderful artist AND person.
Here is the creation I made for my dear friend and DT sister using Whimsy's Jelly Bean.
Stamps: Whimsy Stamps Jelly Bean
Medium: Ranger Distress Reinkers
Paper: Cosmo Cricket Togetherness
Accessories/Tools: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, seam binding, Viva Decor Pearl Pens, doily
If you know Annika or even if you don't know her and can sympathize with what she's going through, 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 ask her for Annika's address.
This hop will end on February 5, noon Eastern time so you have enough time to create a card for our friend!
Thanks so much for hopping along with us today!  Your next stop on the hop is Lori's beautiful blog.
