Lili of the Valley Christmas Animals Blog Hop

UPDATE: The winners have been announced on the Inspire blog, check HERE to see if you've won. 

Good morning LOTV fans, thanks for stopping by! Today we’re holding a Lili of the Valley sneak peek blog hop to celebrate the launch of some new Christmas Animals and Sentiment stamps! Here's how it's going to work... many of the DT members are going to be participating so all you have to do is 'hop' from blog to blog (links provided below) and leave a comment on each post for a chance to win some great prizes. 

Prize 1- One set of the brand new Christmas sentiment clear stamp sheets, 1 each of the new designs, worth £50.00 (approximately US$78.55).

Prize 2- The full set of the new Christmas animal rubber stamps, worth £45.00 (approximately US$70.70).

The prizes will be 'hidden' in 2 of the blogs, so you have to make sure and leave comments on all of them for the best chance of winning. The lucky blogs will be revealed tonight and two winners will be drawn at random from the comments left on those blogs. 

Now onto my card...

I chose to use 'All Cozy and Warm' for my card today. Remember these stamps will be available for purchase on August 22nd. I've colored these adorable animals with Copics and colored pencils.



The papers I used on this card are from the new 'Classic Christmas' paper pad recently made available in the store. They are wonderful! I especially love the tartan plaids included in this pad, I used the red for this card. I even added some texture to it using a linen impression plate, it almost looks like real fabric! The wood grain paper is not from the paper pad, it's a scrap I had laying on my craft table that just added the perfect 'lodge' Christmas look to the whole card. A pretty bow with some jingle bells and a tag from a new set of Christmas sentiment tags also being released on the 22nd and the card is done! I actually added some of the new papers to the inside of the card too, along with a verse from 'A5 Verses', but I forgot to take a picture of it. 

Anyway, hope you like it, now 'hop' along to the rest of our blogs and don't forget to leave comments on all of them for a chance to win! Thanks for visiting!
