Lili of the Valley Blog Hop

Good morning everyone and thanks for stopping by!

Time for another Lili of the Valley design team blog hop and today we’re celebrating our first launch of 2014.
There are 10 adorable new stamps in the set featuring the hugely popular James the Bear and some more of our newest cute characters; Jack, Patch and Puss.
  The stamps will be available to buy on the website from midday (UK time) on Monday 13th January.
The shop in Leeds is open this Saturday 10 – 4 and you will also be able to buy them there is you are going along.
 
   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 for using these cute new images.

As always we have some hidden prizes along the way, we don’t know where they are so do be sure to visit and comment on every blog.
We will let you know on Monday morning 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 2 full sets of the new stamps to give away, 2 lucky winners will each get all 10 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;

I have used the adorable James - Laptop for the hop today! Gotta love this bear!!
I colord him with Inktense pencils!
Next stop is my sweet and talented teammate Elise 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 on Monday morning when you can find out who the lucky winners were of the prizes before the stamps go on sale.
 
Enjoy the hop everyone, good luck!
Hugs, Dena

Oh what a wonderful job you've made of James... he looks fabulous!

I was on my way to buy the new release this morning, but unfortunately ended up in collision with a pedal cyclist.. bit of fault on both sides... but he was OK, I'm glad to say. But because I was so shaken up, I didn't get to the shop... so now I have to order on Monday.. Hmmmmf!!
