LOTV New Release 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 second set of their 2013 Christmas collection and there are 20 stamps including some of your favourite characters and also a few more traditional designs

The stamps will be available to buy on the website from midday on Sunday August 25th (UK time)


***


I’m sure you know what to do by now  ...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 the hop, we don’t know where it is hidden so do make sure you that you visit and comment on every blog
You have a couple of days to join in, we will let you know on Saturday 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 20 rubber stamps, one each of all the newest 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;


Becky (me)
Dawny


Here’s my card made with James Snowman, I'm glad James is back, he is so adorable.


The papers are from Maja Designs 6x6 It's Christmas Time pad, the edges have been distressed with Walnut Stain.


I've used distress markers to colour the image in, with a touch of glamour dust for sparkle. 


I've used a tag from the Christmas Sentiment Stamps


Hope you are enjoying hopping around.

Hugs,

Becky xx
