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
The full set of 10 new stamps
4 new perfectly pretty stamps
3 new flower stamps
3 new fairy stamps
So what did I do then?
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 :)
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 :)
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 !!
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
