LOTV Blog Hop ~ James with Umbrella

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 
You will also be able to buy them there if 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
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

Remember that you will need to visit them all and 
leave a comment on each one to have the best chance of winning;

 You should have arrived here from the lovely Elise

I have made a card using the sweet James with umbrella


Next stop is the lovely Gretha If you get lost you can start again HERE

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!

Oh and don't forget our monthly challenge
"Anything Goes"

Julye said...

another great card and another favourite image too why do these super LOTV designers make it so hard to choose and spend my limited pennies I really want them all but know I can't have them, think I need a rainy day card to cheer me up but would settle for a lot of luck to win the full set so I have everything crossed.Thanks for sharing.
