I’m back… (again!) with a sneaky peek hop

 

 

 

Hello lovely crafty friends… Happy New Year!

I took on the mammoth task of clearing out the attic over the Christmas Holidays and what a job it turned out to be! I’m just about finished and can’t wait to get back to some crafting. I am ashamed of the amount of crafty stash I have, so many things unopened that were bought with good intentions and then forgotten about when something else grabbed my attention. I’ve had a massive clear out and got lots of new storage so I know exactly what I have and where it lives. I’m going to get back on my Design Teams and start blogging again as soon as I’m done and I can’t wait!

Watch out too for loads of fab new crafty inspiration coming soon from Lili of the Valley. The website is nearly ready and I know many of you have missed the blog and the challenges. Our new Cross Stitch charts have been really popular so we have new designs coming soon, we listened to customer feedback so this time they will be sold as kits rather than just the chart

We’re having a hop today to sneaky peek the latest launch, there are 4 new rubber stamp images and some super cute mini images that are on an A5 clear sheet. There is also a set of new sentiments to go with our adorable fairies. We’re giving you chance to win the full set of new stamps, make sure you comment at each stop and a winner will be drawn on Friday from all the comments left on one lucky blog

 

You can get the new products on the website on Saturday (31st)

This was a card from last year that I couldn’t bear to throw away so I messed around with it, took some things off and added a few bits – I think the colours are nice with this cute Spring image, it’s called Little Lamb, and I used one of our popular circular sentiments

 

January Hop - Little Lamb

 

 

I added some lovely flowers, hessian and tulle from the Ribbon Girl

The trellis at the back is a Spellbinders die and the papers are Prima

Hope you like it, next stop is Becky and she has a gorgeous card to share with you today

The winner will be announced on Friday evening so check back on the blogs and also on our Facebook page to see if you were lucky!

 

Have a lovely day all, see you soon

  12. Lovely card. I have the trellis die and haven't used it for ages, must dig it out. I think we are all guilty of buying more crafty goodies than we actually use. I am now running out of storage too! But I will still be purchasing one or two new stamps. I NEED them!
    Good to see you back. Can't wait to see the new website.
