An Oh So Sweet Blog Hoppity Hop :)

 

Good morning everyone and thanks for stopping by!

Time for another

 Lili of The Valley

design team blog hop to celebrate the launch of our 10 new utterly adorable new Baby stamps

The stamps will be available to buy on the website from midday Monday 2nd December  and also at our  Christmas party in Leeds on Saturday if you are able to go along - and it would be fab if you could drop by and say howdy :)

You know how to play along sweet peeps - 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, and we don’t know where they are so do be sure to visit and comment on every blog.

We will let you know tomorrow 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 and there will be a 3rd prize of a clear set of our baby companion 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;

So what did I do then?

Well I bet some of you thought this would be a bit of a pink fest over here, and it so nearly was, but ...

 Picture-001w

... I thought I'd go for a boy's card just for  change!!

Please excuse the grainy pics me darlins - the light here is just awful at the mo.
Dontcha just hate this time of year for that!!

Picture-009w

This sweetie lil sausage is called

Bang The Drum

and I coloured him with the following Cop0ics -

Skin - E000, E00, E11, E13, R00, R02
The rest - B000, Boo,  B02,  B15, B93, E31, E33, E35, E39,  E50

I also outlined the image with Glamour Dust  - you cant really see it on here thanks to my amazing photographic skills (hahaaa) but IRL it doesn't half make the image stand out :)

Picture-010w

The papers are from ...

image 

.. the Winter Wishes paper pad.
The pad was on my desk and I thought they were perfect for a boy or male card as well as winter cards.

 

Picture-011w

I got the ribbon from the LOTV shop and the punch is a really old Martha Stewart Embossed Zig Zag punch.
You can still get it from Simon Says Stamp and the link is
right here

 

Picture-002w

If you are wondering, the base card is 6" x 7.5"

I am so into different sized base cards at the mo and they are really easy to make yourself. - you just need to cut a piece of card to the size you want the base card to be, then cut another card but add an extra bit to the length ( so this was cut at 6" x 8").  Then score it at the correct length (here it was 7.5"), fold it and glue the two pieces together.

OK now back to the hop and the next stop is the gorgeous and ever so talented Miss Debbie but as always, 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 tomorrow morning when you can find out who the lucky winners were of the prizes before they go on sale

Enjoy the hop everyone and good luck.

Right, I better get back and finish off the prep for the workshop tomorrow - I cannot wait cos I LOVE meeting up with other crafty bods and there are 5 really lovely projects which we will be making :)

Enjoy your day and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
