Fairy Hoppity Hop

Morning sweet peeps  and thanks for stopping by today.
It’s time for another Lili of The Valley blog hop and today we’re celebrating the launch of the sweet
Birthday Fairies

There are 10 adorable new stamps in the set and they will be available to buy on the website from 10am on Saturday 10th May which is our open day.

As you may or may not know, the shop in Leeds is open for the Birthday celebrations,  and if you can get there you will be in for a real treat because apart from the new fairies being in residence, we have design team members from all over the world coming along, wooohooooo : )

There’s going to be more new products, demonstrations plus some very special offers  …. we are all soooo excited about it and it should be a really great day.

Don’t worry if you can’t get to the shop because there will be some online fun too - we don't want to leave anybody out : ).
We will let you have details nearer the time but Lucy will be on Facebook throughout the day bringing you chat, news and pictures from the shop so you can ‘virtually’ join in with us as well.

OK so for the hop,  you just need to go from one blog to another following the links, and  hopefully along the way you will pick up some ideas and inspiration for using these cute new images as well.

As always we have some hidden prizes along the way, we don’t know where they are so do be sure to visit and comment on every blog

We will let you know on the Ideas to Inspire blog on Saturday morning which were the ‘lucky’ blogs and the prize winners  winners will be drawn at random from all the comments that were left on those blogs.

And talking about prizes ….

We have 2 full sets of the new stamps to give away, 2 lucky winners will each get all 10 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;

So what did I do then?

I used this little sweetie called Midsummer’s Night  - look at her little face as she’s looking up at the moon, bless her.

Here she is ….

… in close up.

Skin - E000, E00, E11, E13, R00, R02
Hair - E30, E31, E33, E35, E39, E50
The rest -  E0000, E30, E43, E47. E49, E50, RV0000, RV00, RV01, RV10, RV34, RV69, Y0000, Y00, Y02, Y21, Y28,  YG0000, YG00, YG03, YG59

The papers are from the Country Gent 8x8 paper pad .

 

 

Cheery Lynn French Pastry Doily meets Martha Stewart Dec Fans Punch and the words are from the brilliant Sentiments to Fit Scroll set.

 

 

A mixture of bloomage from The Ribbon Girl plus ….

.. a couple of little stars which I made.
Time to fess up – I forgot to add glitter to them – doh!!!

 

So there’s my card – I hope you like it peeps.

From here you need to visit the  sweetness that is our Dena but don't forget that 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 on Saturday morning when you can find out who the lucky winners were of the prizes before the stamps go on sale

Enjoy the hop everyone, good luck, and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
