Hopping With Annabel


annabelbloghoplowres 
Hi there sweet peeps, happy Friday and a very good morning to you :)
Thank you for stopping by and it is a very happy Friday indeedy because it's time for another fantabulous  Lili of The Valley design team blog hop.
Today we are hoping to inspire you with plenty of ideas for when you are able to get your crafty mitts on the latest stamp release and you'll be chuffed as chuff to know that you  wont have too long to wait because they will be available to buy on the website from midday (UK time) on Monday 24th March.
Wooohoooo :)
The latest release features 7 gorgeous stamps and introduces our adorable new character Annabel, and she is a proper little cutie. And soooooooo sweet with it :)
So you know what to do possums.
You just have to hop from one blog to another, following the links and leaving a comment on each post.
And as you go you will hopefully pick up one or two ideas along the way :)
As always we have some hidden prizes.
We don’t know where they are so do be sure to visit and leave a comment on every blog.

The hidden prizes are  2 full sets of the new release so 2 lucky winners will each win the complete set of 7 Annabel stamps.
We will let you know on Monday morning which were the ‘lucky’ blogs and the winners will be drawn at random from all the comments that were left on those blogs
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 did ....
  Picture-002w 
... this :)
The image I used is called Annabel Texting  - I wonder what she's saying (ooh I am sooo nosy)!!
I gave her the Copics treatment, like you do, and ....
 Picture-008w
...  these are the colours I used -
Skin - E000, E00, E11, E13, R00, R02
Hair - E30, E31, E33, E35, E39, E50
The rest -  B45, B93, B95, B97, C9, YG0000, YG00, YG03, YG59
The papers are from a  Shabby Shack 8x8 paper pad - they're so clean and fresh and perfect for this time of the year
 Oops, I should have brushed the glitter out of her hair before taking her pic - what a dozy beggar!!!
Picture-006w
A little arrangement featuring a button, some twine, lotsa leaves
and a  sentiment from
SET 18 - Greetings Postmarks

 Picture-003w
So I hope you like my card  :)
So now back to the hop.
The next stop is the sweetness that is our Dena  and don't worry if you get lost along the way - you can start again at the beginning and pick the links up from there
Don’t forget to stop by the Ideas to Inspire blog on Monday morning when you can find out who the lucky winners were of the 2 sets of stamps
Enjoy the hop everyone, good luck and huggiest of hugs to all xxx!
