Lili of the Valley blog hop …

 

 

 

Morning all, thanks for stopping by!

 

Today we are holding a Lili of the Valley design team blog hop to celebrate the launch of the gorgeous new Vintage Boy stamps

There are 8 of the cutest images and they will be perfect for those hard to make cards for boys and men

 

The stamps will be available to buy on the website from midday on Monday 6th May (UK time) and you will also be able to get them at the Lili of the Valley shop in Leeds on Saturday (4th) if you are near enough to visit us. There are still a couple of places on the Recipe Box workshop if you fancy making a day of it!

 

 

The fabulous LOTV design team are all joining in, you just need to ‘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 along the way for using the new images

 

 

We don’t know where the prizes are so make sure you visit every blog. We will let you know tomorrow evening which were the ‘lucky’ blogs and 2 winners will be drawn at random from all the comments that were left

 

There will be 2 prize winners, each winning the full set of 8 new stamps

 

Here's a list of all the blogs taking part... and remember you will need to visit them all and leave a comment to have the best chance of winning;

 Boys Blog Hop

 

 

I’ve coloured him with Copics and then used Spellbinders labels 18 to make a frame around the image

The papers are Lili of the Valley Country Gent (fab!) and I used some Frantage powder for a bit of texture

The brads and lovely charms are Tim Holtz and all the other bits are from The Ribbon Girl

‘Hop’ on over to Dawny's blog from here and don’t forget to stop by the Ideas to Inspire blog tomorrow evening when you can find out if you were a lucky winner of one of the hidden prizes

 

 

Enjoy the hop… and good luck!
