LOTV Baby Blog Hop

Hi There 
 Happy Friday to you all :D

Time for another Lili of the Valley design team blog hop to celebrate the launch of their 10 adorable new Baby stamps

The stamps will be available to buy on the website from midday Monday but will be available in the shop at their Christmas party in Leeds on Saturday if you are able to go along.
Sadly Im not going to make it this time.


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 for using these cute new images

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 morning which were the ‘lucky’ blogs and the winners will be drawn at random from all the comments that were left on those blogs

We have 2 full sets of the new stamps to give away, 2 lucky winners will each get all 10 new designs and there will be a 3rd prize of a clear set of our baby companion stamps 

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;

Here’s my card 

Next stop is the gorgeous Dena and if you get lost you can start again at the beginning and pick the links up from there

Finally, don’t forget to stop by the Ideas to Inspire blog tomorrow morning when you can find out who the lucky winners were of the prizes before they go on sale

Enjoy the hop everyone, good luck!

Byee for now

An Autumnul Day

Brrrr What a cold damp day we've had in the UK today. Or maybe its just me feeling the cold after the 27*C we had on our hols last week.

LOTV in Magnolia Ink??....Yes

Magnolia Magazine - Winter Wonderland (issue 5 - 2013)
Morning :D
Have you all got your new copy of the Christmas Magnolia Ink? :D
I returned home yesterday from my hols and it was waiting for me.
The girls have once again made some stunning creations.
You will also see some changes in there too. There's not just Magnolia but a few other stamp companys in there which made a lovely change.
 I was asked to make LOTV cards. Here's a sneaky peek.
I have to say it felt a little weird posting them off to Sweden and not Leeds.
Also Ive made a little Frantage Tutorial
Sorry for the absence lately, I really needed a break, but I'm all freshened up and itching to get started again.
Back soon
