Walk the plank


Welcome to the Lili of the Valley Designers Mini Hop!!  By popular demand we have reverted to the original way of doing the hop - we are all going to use the same stamp again as we did with the first hop so you'll get various  different ideas on using the same stamp.  
And today we are showcasing "Walk the plank" from the latest release from Lili of the Valley.

This month we are sponsored by The Ribbon Girl and Lili of the Valley, each have supplied two prizes, and as there are only five DT members taking part this month all five blogs will have a prize up for grabs!!

WALK THE PLANK


I have also used:
Nitwit ~ Land Ho
Sizzix ~ Pirate set
DooHickey ~ Round talk bubbles
Sentiment from computer using
SU ~ Twine 
Tim Holtz ~ DIs
Hessian & Charm from stash 


All you have to do to join in the fun is leave a comment on the DT's blogs 
and we will draw a winner on Friday 19th May and announce the winners on our blogs, 
so do check back then to see if you are a winner.

The DT taking part in this mini hop are:


Thanks for looking
BIG HUGZ
