Lili of the Valley - Blog Hop

Good morning everyone and what an exciting day it is for Lili of the Valley . After a very successful launch at the NEC last week the brand new stamps are all now available to buy online!! But wait .... how would you fancy winning 6 brand new stamps of your choice ...... well read on and find out how you can win.



To celebrate the new stamps going on sale LOTV Challenge Blog are hosting a blog hop!! You should have arrived on my blog from Jacqui (aka cats whiskers) . If you didn't then just pop back to the challenge blog for the start of the hop.

To enter all you need to do is work your way through each of the links leaving a comment telling us your favourite LOTV stamp until you get back to the LOTV Valley Challenge Blog.

You will then need to create a link to the blog hop on your blog.

On the way around the hop each DT member will give you a letter - make a note of these as they will make up a word, when re-arranged, which we will ask you for if your comment on the LOTV Challenge Blog is drawn by Random.Org as the winner of the 6 stamps.

We will e-mail the winner and if you respond with the correct word the stamps of your choice will be sent off to you.

Remember once you have done this you will be in the draw for not only ...............

A Lili of the Valley Stamp of your choice on each of the DT's blogs so you get lots of chances to win, but also be in the draw for the set of 6 stamps of your choice.

The Blog hop will be open until Wednesday 18th November


I have used one of the new images for my card ... Boys - Lazy Afternoon. All the stamps are incredible value at only £3.50each!

Struggling with male orientated cards is now a thing of the past for me, these stamps don´t you agree, just cry out to be used . I have followed the fabulous sketch Marcea designed special for this hop.

I have used copics and chalks, papers are Bloom n Grow, ribbon is from SU and the corner dies are Double Do.


So here is my letter for you all ......

H

Remember to write it down and collect all the letters from the other DT members.

You will now need to hop on over and visit Domi´s blog . Good luck everyone.
