LOTV designers mini hop – Walk the Plank

 

 

Welcome to the Lili of the Valley Designers Mini Hop!!  By popular demand we have reverted to the original way of doing the hop - we are all going to use the same stamp again as we did with the first hop so you'll get various  different ideas on using the same stamp.


This month we are sponsored by The Ribbon Girl and Lili of the Valley, each have supplied two prizes, and as there are only five DT members taking part this month all five blogs will have a prize up for grabs!!

 

 




 

Today we are showcasing "walk the plank" from the latest release from Lili of the Valley and here’s the card that I’ve made to share with you today…

 

 

walk the plank tag in

 

 

I put a diagonal piece over the front which makes a little pocket to hold the matching tag

 

 

walk the plank tag

 

 

I’ve just used the little dog from the stamp for the tag, I love making these using my doohickey dies, they’re so cute!

 

  walk the plank tag out

 

 

I also used doohickey dies for the cloud and the star border, Magnolia patterned papers, Tim Holtz brads and the little charm is from our generous sponsors this month The Ribbon Girl

 

 

walk the plank no tag

 

 

Sorry about the shadows on the pictures, I didn’t realise how bright it was until I looked at the photos tonight! 

 

All you have to do to join in the fun is leave a comment on each of the DT's blogs. We will draw a winner on Friday 19th May and announce the winners on our blogs so make sure that you check back then to see if you won a prize!

 
The DT taking part in this mini hop are:

Fleur

Pops

Anne (that’s me!)

Dena

Bev

 

 

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day x
