A VERY Special Hoppity Hop :)

 

bloghop880

Morning sweet peeps  and thanks for stopping by today – apols that I am bit late (techie stuff and it always happens when I don't need it to, grrr)..

It’s a very special post for me – see below – and also it’s time for another Lili of The Valley blog hop and today we’re celebrating the launch of the our new sweet girlie stamps

There are  8 new images including the Bonfire and Halloween images which you’ve seen already so today we are showcasing the remaining 6 and they are adorable.

Well you’d expect nothing less from us would you :))

They will be available to buy on the website from Monday but if you are coming over to the shop for the Open Day on Saturday then you will be able to get them then.

And speaking of the Open Day, there are still a few places left on the workshops if you fancy spending a couple of crafty hours with moi.
You can see all the details right here and it would be fab if you could join us.

There’s cake, crafting and a fair bit of laughter 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 Friday evening 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 8 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 made a triangle card, just for a change as I thought it echoed the image, which is the oh so sweet Annabel Camping.

The papers I used are Country Meadow – sooo pretty.

I coloured Annabel with the following Copics -

Skin – E0000, E00, E13, R00, R05
Hair – E31, E35, E35, E50
The rest – E31, E35, E39, E50. RV00, RV10, RV34, RV69, Y11, Y21, Y28, YG01, YG03, YG95

 

The tags are  SET 24 - Sentiment Tags – perfect for these images I think.

And there’s a bit of prettiness from The Ribbon Girl - 16mm Pink/Fuschia Saddlestitch ribbon and some Cream Tiny Ric Rac

Now before we get on with the hop, I did say that this was a special post and indeed it is, and not just because of the hop.

But also  I just realised that this is my 1000th post.

Wooohooo, who ever would have thought!!

So keep an eye out on here and I will put together a little celebration pack which I will give away to one of my followers over the next week or so.

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

From here you need to visit the  sweetness that is our  gorgeous sweet Elise 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 Friday night 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
