LOTV Blog Hop

Good morning everyone and thanks for stopping by!

Time for another Lili of the Valley design team blog hop and today we’re celebrating our first launch of 2014
There are 10 adorable new stamps in the set featuring the hugely popular James the Bear and some more of our newest cute characters; Jack, Patch and Puss

The stamps will be available to buy on the website from midday (UK time) on Monday 13th January
The shop in Leeds is open this Saturday 10 – 4 and you will also be able to buy them there if you are going along

*

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 for using these cute new images

As always we have some hidden prizes along the way, we don’t know where they are so do be sure to visit and comment on every blog
We will let you know on Monday morning which were the ‘lucky’ blogs and the winners will be drawn at random from all the comments that were left on those blogs


We have 2 full sets of the new stamps to give away, 2 lucky winners will each get all 10 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;

Becky (Me)
Dawny

I have used the super cute James With Daisy, I know I have said before, I love James.


This is rather CAS for me, but with James being a boy I didn't think this card called for any flowers or lace, I have used some chocolate brown button twine and also some natural jute mesh.


James has been coloured with distress reinkers, with a touch of glamour dust on the flowers. The sentiment is from the Sentiment Tags set, and the papers are from Woodland Wishes and Antebellum.


Next stop is Dawny and if you get lost you can start again at the beginning and pick the links up from there.

Finally, don’t forget to stop by the Ideas to Inspire blog on Monday morning when you can find out who the lucky winners were of the prizes before the stamps go on sale


Enjoy the hop everyone, good luck!

Hugs,

Becky xx
