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 Christmas stamps.
This is the second set of their 2013 Christmas collection and there are 20 stamps including some of your favourite characters and also a few more traditional designs.
 
The stamps will be available to buy on the website from midday on Sunday August 25th (UK time)
***
  I’m sure you know what to do by now  ...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 the hop, we don’t know where it is hidden so do make sure you that you visit and comment on every blog.
You have a couple of days to join in, we will let you know on Saturday 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 20 rubber stamps, one each of all the newest 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;

Dena (Me)
Elise

Here’s my card featuring "Swirly Fir Tree".

 I colored with distress inks and used Bo Bunny papers.  The flowers are, as usual Wild Orchid Crafts haha!  I used the Christmas Circular Sentiments and the Grunge Christmas Postmarks.
 
You're next stop is one of my bestest, most talented buddies ELISE, and if you get lost you can always go back to the beginning and pick it up from there.
 
Don’t forget to stop by the Ideas to Inspire blog on Saturday evening when you can find out who the lucky winner is of that great prize.

Enjoy the hop…    and good luck!

Big hugs from Texas! 

Dena
