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 Summer stamps.
There are 10 new designs including fairies, flowers and also some that are a little bit different!
  The stamps will be available to buy on the website from midday UK time on Monday 8th July and will be launched in their Leeds shop on Saturday 6th if you are near enough to visit.
  ***
The LOTV design team are all joining in and you may have noticed that there are some new names on the list
We’re all thrilled to welcome our new teamies   ...it’s the very fabulous Kim Piggot, Becky Hetherington and Debbie Dolphin!
  ***
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.

There are some great prizes up for grabs on this hop, we don’t know where they are hidden 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.
 
1st prize
The full set of 10 new stamps
 
2nd prize
4 new perfectly pretty stamps
 
3rd prize
3 new flower stamps
 
4th prize
3 new fairy 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 as we don’t know where the prizes are hidden;
*
I have two cards to show you today for the hop; two VERY different cards.  The first is using the new "Handbags" stamp.  

 This next card is for all those like me who like to try something just a little bit different!! I was inspired by the artist Mackenzie Childs.  She always used these amazing checkers on her work along with wonderful florals.  Since this image was so whimsical, I decided to try it out.  I really do like it even though it is so different for me.  The stamp is called "Summer Church"
Here is what the tag looks like using "Vintage Backs" and "Quotables - Celebrate".

 
Your next stop is the ever so fabulous crafter, ELISE.....and if you get lost along the way you can start again at the Ideas to Inspire blog
 
Don’t forget to also stop by the Ideas to Inspire blog tomorrow evening when you can find out who the lucky winners are of those great prizes
 
Enjoy the hop…    and good luck!

Hugs, Dena
