Time For A Hoppity Hop & Welcome Back An Old Friend :)

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 Summer stamps

There are 10 new designs including fairies, flowers and also some that are a little bit different!

The stamps will be available to buy on the website from midday UK time on Monday 8th July and will be launched in their Leeds shop on Saturday 6th if you are near enough to visit.

The LOTV design team are all joining in and you may have noticed that there are some new names on the list

We’re all thrilled to welcome our new teamies   ...it’s the very fabulous Kim, Becky and Debbie. A veritable trio of talent they are, as well as being total and utter sweeties :)

You just need to ‘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 are some great prizes up for grabs on this hop, we don’t know where they are hidden so do make sure you that you visit and comment on every blog

We will let you know tomorrow evening which were the ‘lucky’ blogs and the winners will be drawn at random from all the comments that were left on those blogs

1st prize

The full set of 10 new stamps

2nd prize

4 new perfectly pretty stamps

3rd prize

3 new flower stamps

4th prize

3 new fairy stamps


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 as we don’t know where the prizes are hidden;

So what did I do then?

 Picture-001web

I went for a touch of blue and brown for this little sweetie - she is called Skipping

The papers I used today are all from  the 8x8 Petal Fresh Paper Pad - they look so clean :)

Picture-006web 

I coloured her with these Copics -

Skin - E000, E00, E11, E21, R00, R02
Hair - E31, E35, E39, E50
The rest - B00, B93, B95, B97, E30, E42, E43, E50

And I dabbed a shed load of glitter around her cos I kind of like things to look a bit sparkly :)

 

Picture-004web

I did say in the the title that I was welcoming back an old friend.

And here it is -  the good old Martha Stewart Doily Punch, yayyyy. There was a time when I put this on everything that didn't move, but then I broke it. So I got another and after many months of complete overload, it had a diva strop meltdown on me and jammed :(

I kept meaning to replace it but never got around to it.
Then when I was sorting through my aunt's craft stuff after she died, I found hers.

So it was with a bit of a lump in my throat that I used it again and I still love it :)

So that's the card and now on with the hop !!

Your next stop is Debbie and if you get lost along the way you can start again at the Ideas to Inspire blog

Don’t forget to also stop by the Ideas to Inspire blog tomorrow evening when you can find out who the lucky winners are of those great prizes

Enjoy the hop…    and good luck!

And huggiest of hugs to all xx

PS will the lady that left me a comment yesterday about the Go Kreate die please ping me a quick email. I accidentally deleted your comment chick, I am so sorry, but if you email me I'll help you with your query :)
