A Christmas Hoppity Hop :)

Good morning peeps.
Thanks for stopping by and if you've arrived here from  our
Becky’s blog, then you are in the right place because today we are holding a Lili of the Valley design team blog hop to celebrate the launch of our gorgeous new Christmas products

This 2014 collection is the most adorable mix of 22 cute character stamps – there’s new vintage boys & girls, snowmen, penguins and angels. In short, there’s something for everybody in this little lot : )

You will be able to buy everything  on the website from midnight on Friday August 1st (UK time) along with our new Christmas paper pads and some useful clear stamp sets (Christmas sentiments, carols and mini images and also some everyday recipes which are brilliant)

The LOTV design team are all joining in and you know how it works me darlins. You just need to ‘hop’ from one blog to another following the links and leaving a comment on each card.  Along the way you will hopefully pick up lots of ideas and inspiration for different ways to use the new images

As always there are fabulous prizes up for grabs on this hop. We don’t know where they are hidden of course,  so do make sure you that you visit and comment on every blog.

We will let you know tomorrow evening 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 a full set of the new Christmas image stamps to give away;

1st prize is the 12 angels, penguins and snowmen

2nd prize is the 10 vintage children

2 awesome giveaways : )

So what did I do then?

Well here is my card – I kept it very simple -  and the image I used is called

Seeds & Greetings (I LOVE that!!)

It is so easy to colour and I coloured it with the following Copics -

BG0000, C00, C0, C1, C2, C4, C5, C7, C10, E30, E31, E35, E39, E50, R05, R14, R17, R46, R59, YG00, YG03, YG95, YR04, YR16, YR68

The paper is from one of the new pads – this is Twas The Night.

Here’s another newbie – this is one of the new sentiments.
I'm not sure what this set is called yet but keep your eyes peeled for it because there is every Chrimbly sentiment you will ever need on here and in different fonts and styles as well.

 

Here’s a list of everybody who is taking part in the hop -

So the next stop is the sweetness that is our 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 evening when you can find out who the lucky winners were of the prizes before the new products go on sale

Enjoy the hop everyone, good luck and huggiest of hugs to all xxx

This is adorable! What's fun is you can decide if the snowman is "alive" and wishes to feed the birds, or if it was constructed as a bird feeder...
