Lili of the Valley Blog Hop

Good morning everyone and thanks for stopping by!

Today we are holding a Lili of the Valley design team blog hop to celebrate the launch of their gorgeous new Vintage Boy stamps.
There are 8 of the cutest images and they will be perfect for those hard to make cards for boys and .
  The stamps will be available to buy on the website from midday on Monday 6th May (UK time) and you will also be able to get them at the Lili of the Valley shop in Leeds on Saturday (4th) if you are near enough to visit.

The LOTV design team are all joining in, you just need to ‘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 along the way for using the new images.

We don’t know where the prizes are so make sure you visit every blog. We will let you know tomorrow evening which were the ‘lucky’ blogs and 2 winners will be drawn at random from all the comments that were left.

There will be 2 prize winners, each winning the full set of 8 new stamps
 
Here's a list of all the blogs taking part...    and remember you will need to visit them all and leave a comment to have the best chance of winning;
 
Dena (That's me)
Jen

 
 Here's my card for the hop using the super cute "Mans Best Friend" using the paper pads Bear Necessities and Country Gent.  I colored the image with distress inks.

 
Don’t forget to stop by the Ideas to Inspire blog tomorrow evening when you can find out where the hidden prizes were.

Enjoy the hop…     and good luck!

Hugs, Dena
