Christmas Blog Hop

Good morning everyone and thanks for stopping by!

Today we are holding a Lili of the Valley design team blog hop to celebrate the launch of their gorgeous new Christmas stamps
This is the first set in their 2013 Christmas collection and is an adorable mix of 16 cute characters which we think you are going to LOVE!

The stamps will be available to buy on the website from midday on 25th July (UK time) along with some fabulous new art pads and patterned papers


***


The LOTV design team are all joining in and you may have noticed that there is another new name on the list...
we’re all thrilled to welcome our new teamie, it’s the amazing Kathy!


***


I’m sure you know what to do by now lol  ...just ‘hop’ from one blog to another following the links and leave a comment on each card, hopefully we can give you lots of ideas and inspiration along the way for using the new images

There is a fabulous prize up for grabs on this hop, we don’t know where it is hidden so do make sure you that you visit and comment on every blog
We will let you know tomorrow evening which was the ‘lucky’ blog and a winner will be drawn at random from all the comments that were left on that blog


The prize is a full set of the new Christmas stamps...
that’s 16 rubber stamps, one each of all the new designs


  

Here's a list of all the blogs taking part, and remember that you will need to visit them all and leave a comment on each one to have the best chance of winning;


Here’s my card,


I've used the gorgeous Festive Post, how adorable is this image? The sentiment is from Christmas Handwritten Phrases and the corner stamp is from Grunge Corners.


The papers are from Pion Design and have been distressed and then machine sewn with top stitch thread. The bazzill backing card has been distressed with walnut stain ink.


I've added glamour dust to the little girls coat and I've used Diamond Dust for the snow. 


I've used distress markers to colour the image in, with reinkers for the browns.


My arty shot,

Hugs,

Becky xx
