Happy Christmas Hoppity 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 Thursday July 25th (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;

OK so what did I do then?

Picture-001web

Well I used this super sweet image which is called

Window Seat

And ......

Picture-005web 

... I coloured it with these Copics -

Skin - E000, E00, E11, E13, R00, R02
Hair - E35, E59,
The rest - C00, C1, C2, C3,  C4, C7, E30, E31, E35, E39, E41, E42, E43, R02, R05, R17, R27, R59, YG00, YG03, YG95

Phew I THINK that's it!!!

I'm sorry but I found the papers in the bottom of my paper drawers and the front cover had come off but I have a feeling they are Bazzill papers.

Picture-004web

A yummy bit of Ribbon Girl-age in the form of a bow made from 25mm small black check ribbon, a Red Small Polka Dot Spotty Button, some Cream Jute Mesh Ribbon and some Medium Red Berries

 Picture-002web

 Picture-003web

So that;s my card done and now it's time to get back to the hop.

Don’t forget to stop by the Ideas to Inspire blog tomorrow evening when you can find out who the lucky winner is of that great prize

Enjoy the hop…    and good luck!

Huggiest of hugs to all and congratulations on our new  Royal Baby :)
