LOTV Birthday Hop

Good morning crafters, an early post from me today on this sunny Tuesday as we’re having a blog hop… ooooh!

It’s a while since I did this, the Lili of the Valley ones used to be hugely popular so as part of their 14th birthday celebrations we are having a birthday hop with some wonderful inspiration from the Design Team

If you’re on the hop you’ll have come here from Jen’s blog

If you just stopped by to visit me and want to join in the then follow the next link to Gaynor

You can see lots more cards on the facebook group today from some of our previous DT and visit the Lili of the Valley website here for Birthday offers


I used Rosie and cake for my cards today, one of the earlier images and still one of my favourites…

I made a rocker card for a change, it’s a while since I added ribbon and flowers to a card but I liked it, very girlie!

I printed a few of the Simply print sheets at once and I did this quick eclipse card too so thought I’d share at the same time…

Hope you like them, this is the Simply Print sheet but you can also get a digi stamp too if you haven’t got this cutie in your collection


Here’s a list below of the blogs on the hop so if you get lost you can start again

Be sure to leave a comment on each blog as there is a £10 voucher hidden along the way at one of the blogs and don’t forget to check back tomorrow night to see if I had the prize here
