The Perfect Tree .... LOTV Blog Hop

Morning, Sorry I've not been around since back from Holland and Egypt but I have had good reason... decorating my new studio and starting to move in! I'm nearly done so will have a few pics the end of this week!

Anyhow, today we have a fabulous Lili of the Valley design team blog hop to celebrate the launch of their gorgeous new Christmas products. This 2014 collection is an adorable mix of 22 cute character stamps; new vintage boys & girls, snowmen, penguins and angels

[bloghop880%255B3%255D.jpg]

The stamps will be available to buy on the website from midnight on Friday August 1st (UK time) along with new Christmas paper pads and some useful clear stamp sets!

You know the score, you need to ‘hop’ from one blog to another following the links and leave a comment on each card, there is loads of inspiration and fabulous cards along the way in many different styles!
As always there are fabulous 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

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 fabulous Perfect Tree Image... I just love these vintage boys!



The next stop is Kathy 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 tomorrow evening when you can find out who the lucky winners were of the prizes before the new products go on sale
