LOTV Blog Hop …

      5newgirlsnov2013  
 
 
Morning all, thanks for stopping by!
Lili of the Valley are launching 5 cute new girlie stamps over the weekend so we’re having a fun DT blog hop to celebrate!
The stamps will be available to buy on the website on Monday 4th November and also at the open day in Leeds on Saturday if you are able to come along
*
 
We thought we’d have a change for this hop, you all enjoy seeing how an image can be used in different ways so this time we are showing cards all made using the same stamp
We’ve chosen Getting Ready  ...and she is just adorable!
*
Just ‘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
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 tomorrow evening which was the ‘lucky’ blogs and the winners will be drawn at random from all the comments that were left on those blogs
 
We have 3 sets of the new stamps to give away, three lucky winners will each get all 5 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;
 
Anne – you’re here
 
Here’s my card for the hop...
 
 
November Lili - Add Sparkle
 
 
I used papers from Simple Joys, I love the white pages from this collection – they remind me of a Laura Ashley wallpaper I had many years ago in my bedroom! They can be used for Christmas or general so it’s a very versatile pad
 
I paper pieced the table cloth, I find colouring with deep reds very difficult and they always seem to bleed. The plain red in the pad has a clever embossed effect so it looks a bit like fabric. I stamped the little presents again and cut them out, I stuck these on with foam pads so they are dimensional
You can’t see very clearly on the picture but I put some glossy accents on the mirror to make it look like glass
 
 
Here’s everything else I used;
 
Square doily from Krafty Hands
Cheery Lynn heart dies
Vintage Sentiments – Just to say
 
and from The Ribbon Girl
Stickles
Heart pin wheel
Mini glossy accents
Spot organza ribbon
Rose organza ribbon
Flatback pearls
 
 
 
Hope you like my version today!
Don’t forget to leave a comment to be in with a chance of winning   …and from here you should be heading onto the fabulous Dena's blog
 
 
One final thing, don’t forget to stop by the Ideas to Inspire blog tomorrow evening when you can find out who the lucky winners were of the prizes
 
Enjoy the hop…    and good luck!
