Lili of the Valley..dt blog hop!!

 Hi..hope you are doing ok?
really lovely to be here today,
 we are holding a Lili of the Valley
  design team blog hop to celebrate the launch
 of their gorgeous new Vintage Boy stamps.

There are 8 of the cutest images and they will be
 perfect for those hard to make cards for boys and men.

The stamps will be available to buy on the website
 from midday on Monday 6th May (UK time) and you will also
 be able to get them at the Lili of the Valley shop in Leeds
 on Saturday (4th) if you are near enough to visit.

The fabulous LOTV design team are all joining in,
 you just need to ‘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...

for my card i have used the sweet image...
""A Lick of Paint"" 
i have tried to make him look as if he 
is painting the green above the picture rail,
also added a strip along the bottom for skirting board,
 made a little car picture Memory box die-
  which i did get for George :) and used the lovely
clear tags,words and sentiments set.


We don’t know where the prizes are
 so make sure you visit every blog.
 We will let you know tomorrow evening
  which were the ‘ lucky ’ blogs
 and 2 winners will be drawn at random
 from all the comments that were left.

  There will be 2 prize winners, 
each winning the full set of 8 new stamps

 Here's a list of all the blogs taking part...  
  and remember you will need to visit them all
 and leave a comment to have the best chance of winning;
Moni
Pops 

Don’t forget to stop by the Ideas to Inspire blog tomorrow evening
 when you can find out where the hidden prizes were.
Enjoy the hop…  and good luck!
 thanks so much for joining in with us all
and for your lovely comments...
have a nice day, hugs all. Lou.xxxxx

Hi Lou, I wish this painter meant just me "just for you", because I'm painting some walls and help would be good.

Lovely, lovely image and you have kept is all together with decoration. Pink(ish) or is it beige backing paper and sewing is excellent. I love those little screws there!

Love
Annemaritta
