A Hop You Really Won’t Want To Miss :)


Picture-007web      
Good morning sweet peeps and I hope that you are all OK and that you had a nice weekend – why do they go by so quickly???
Today is not only the start of the week but it’s the start of a very special week over at Lili of The Valley because it was 9 years ago  that Lisa and Laila started the company.
So to kick off the birthday celebrations we are having a competition and a fun design team blog hop!
Make sure you visit all the blogs on the list because as usual there will be hidden prizes along the way and the winners will be picked at random from the comments that are left on the cards
But we want you to get involved as well cos we have a …
BIRTHDAY CARD COMPETITION
… and it’s really easy to take part – we’d just like you to make us a card for our birthday – easy peasy :)
The design team have all made a birthday card for the hop so if you are stuck for ideas, check them out and they will hopefully inspire you.
The competition closes at 6pm on Saturday the 2nd of March
The winning card will be drawn at random ...and because it’s our 9th birthday the prize is 9 stamps of your choice worth over £40.00!
We will also pick our top 3 from the blog and the Facebook entries and these cards will be featured on the Ideas to Inspire blog
That’s not all  .… the designers of our top 3 cards will be asked to join us for a much sought after guest DT spot so there are 3 really good reasons to enter.
The rules are simple;
1. Make us a birthday card using a Lili of The Valley image and enter it using the linky on the Ideas to Inspire blog,
upload it to our Facebook page or email a picture of your card it over to admin@liliofthevalley.co.uk  ...it doesn’t matter how you enter, all the cards will go into the prize draw.
2. Mention the competition on your own blog and put this image on your sidebar
New Image
That’s it ...  and we are so looking forward to seeing all of your lovely cards!
So what did I do then?
Picture1web
This is my card and there’s a bit of shameless casing going on here from our Lou with the number 9 on the candle  - what a FAB idea
The image I used is Cake Glorious Cake and I did the Copics thing with them with these colours -
Skin – E000, E00, E11, E13
Hair – E31, E35, E50
The rest – C00, C2, RV0000, RV000, RV02, RV23, YG0000, YG01, YG03
And the papers are from the Perfect Pair paper pack – they are soooo pretty these papers.

A bit of birthday bloomage :)

The sentiment is from Set 18 – Greetings Postmarks

I thought the black and white bow went with her stripy tights.
It’s made from 25mm Black No 10 Small Check ribbon from
The Ribbon Girl  :)

So that’s my card done  so now on with the hop.
If you haven't been there already, nip on over to the Ideas to Inspire blog and start there then work your way through the list. There are prizes hidden along the way but we don't know where they are so to be in with a shot you need to visit us all and leave us all a comment as you go.
Here’s the blog list with the links -
Dawny (moi!!)
Enjoy the hop and good luck and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
