Whimsy Stamps - Circle of Friends - 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 Deb Routledge, 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.

Okay for my creation, I decided to ink up 'Suzi with Bunny' by Wee Stamps and used Whimsy papers again this time 'In the Country'.  She's been coloured with copics and a few little gems added to the flowers.  I've been a bit handy with the old walnut stain distress ink again on all the papers and the flowers have even had a touch of distress crackle paint!  So let me show you my card:

When I began crafting and blogging a couple of years ago I happened across Bev's blog and I have been a bit of a blog stalker ever since.  Everyday after the school run I would sit down with my cup of coffee and her blog was my first port of call - I had to have my fix of crafty inspiration!!!  The sentiment I decided to use on my card and is on the Doohickey heart tag tucked behind the image (which I stupidly didn't take a picture of) reads "you brighten my day", so what I wanted to say is this is for you Bev to 'brighten your day' as your gorgeous creations have mine so many times and to send hugs and best wishes your way for a speedy recovery as I'm missing my daily dose of inspiration!!!!
 
Okay enough from me its now time for you to hop over to ... Heidy Blom.
 
Finally, here is a full hop list in hopping order:

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
 
Take care,
Ann-Marie
