Circle of Friends Blog Hop


Welcome to the Circle of Friends Blog Hop!!

If you have arrived from Donna 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.

I chose one of my Whimsy stamps cards for my dear friend and dt sister.......

The image is called Garden Bun Bun Fairy, designed by Melissa Jenkins and the sentiment is from the matching set Garden Bun Bun Fairy by Raindrop Echo Designs. The papers are K#Co -"Sparkly Stweet", the flower is Prima, the lace and the ribbon are from stash.

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 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 Pattie!!

Have a great day!

You Define Me


Today I made a DT card for Whimsy Stamps. I used only one of the sentiment stamps from Love Letter Seals, which was quite unusual, with no colouring at all.

Like I said the stamp is from the Love Letter Seals set designed by Raindrop Echo Designs. The paper is K&Co - Clasic K McKenna, the lace and the ribbon are from stash; and I used a heart punch.

I just added some sparkle to some of the letters and images in the circle with my sakura gelly roll pen.

I'm entering:

The stamp is called "Dressing Up Maggie" and it's from the Sugar Nellie. The paper is K&Co - "Sparkly Sweet", the sentiment is Whiff of Joy. I used my Nestabilities, Classic Scalloped Ovals large dies. The laces, ribbon and the flowers are from stash.

Coloured as usual with watercolour pencils.

I'm entering the Sugar Bowl challenge which is a sketch and embossing -

To those who do celebrate it tomorrow, I would like to wish a very Merry Christmas! Mir Bozji, Hristos se rodi!! Srecan Bozic!

I'd Follow You Anywhere...


I hope you all had a great time for the New Year's Eve! I did have a good time celebrating the New Year and we continued the celebration last night, too, as one of the first cousins got married. I ended up going to bed very late and then I slept in this morning and now I have a headache...

Anyway, I managed to make a Whimsy Stamps card yesterday.

I used three, actually four Whimsy Stamps for this card. I really love these Bear and Penguin images, this one is called I'd Follow You Anywhere, designed by Crissy Armstrong. Then I also used the gorgeous Music Notes Background designed by Raindrop Echo Designs and two stamps from the Love Letter Seals also designed by Raindrop Echo Designs. The paper Whimsy,too - Very Merry, the brads are Woodware, the rest is from stash.

Coloured with watercolour pencils and I also added some glitter.

I'm entering:
Stamp Something - "Something with Glitter"
I Did It Creations - "Favourite Technique" (distressing with distress inks)
Sundays with Crissy monthly challenge - "Ribbons"

I've been cooking/baking a lot in the last few days, I made a delicious hazelnut cake. I also made roasted chicken, beef/vegtable soup, Russian salad and a Mushroom pie.

Thank you for stopping by! :)
