Lili of the Valley Christmas Stamps 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 Christmas stamps.
This is the first set in their 2013 Christmas collection and is an adorable mix of 16 cute characters which we think you are going to LOVE!
 
The stamps will be available to buy on the website from midday on Thursday, July 25th, (UK time) along with some fabulous new art pads and patterned papers.
  ***
  The LOTV design team are all joining in and you may have noticed that there is another new name on the list...
we’re all thrilled to welcome our new teamie, it’s the amazing Kathy!
  ***
  I’m sure you know what to do by now lol  ...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 along the way for using the new images.

There is a fabulous prize up for grabs on this hop, we don’t know where it is hidden so do make sure you that you visit and comment on every blog.
We will let you know tomorrow evening which was the ‘lucky’ blog and a winner will be drawn at random from all the comments that were left on that blog.

The prize is a full set of the new Christmas stamps...
that’s 16 rubber stamps, one each of all the new designs.
  
 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;
 


For my card today I used the adorable "Christmas Goodies" and  made a frame card.  I haven't made one of these for a couple of years and I saw Lillemor make one the other day and thought it was just gorgeous!!!!!!  I went to the tutorial that she used HERE and it was a little different than the one I got from Papertake Weekly ions ago!  It is a bit more finished off with this pattern.  I think these are beautiful and different!!!



All was colored with distress inks and the papers are Maja Designs! I used my Noor dies again with the snowflake border and the single snowflake!!! LOVE these dies!!!!  The sentiment is from the LOTV Christmas Handwritten Phrases.
 
Don’t forget to stop by the Ideas to Inspire blog tomorrow evening when you can find out who the lucky winner is of that great prize.

Enjoy the hop…    and good luck!

Hugs, Dena
