A circle of friends

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 Jacque Beddingfield’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.

I wanted to make Bev something bright and happy that will hopefully make her smile.

I decided to use the beautiful Beau and Bashful stamp by Sylvia Zet again.  I decided to just use Beau though, so I coloured him with my brightest copics, added some sparkle to his horn and cut him out.  I wanted a sentiment about making someone’s day brighter and I didn’t have one so I just printed this up myself and sponged a cloudy sky over the top of it.

I know it would make a great Get Well card for a little girl but I’m really hoping that a big girl like Bev will appreciate it too :)

I hope it did brighten your day a little Bev and I hope you start feeling much better really soon.
