Snow much fun!

It's a Lili of the Valley design team blog hop to showcase the next launch of more cute Christmas stamps - another great excuse to start making those Christmas cards now!  The stamps will be available to buy on the website from midday on Sunday August 25th (UK time).  I have two design team makes, the first using Sledging Buddies and Christmas Handwritten phrases...




And here is my second make using Snow Buddies and Christmas Hand Written Phrases...



Super cute, huh?!!  I love love love these polar bears!  Don't forget to ‘hop’ from one blog to another following the links and leave a comment on each card for a chance to win prizes...

The prize is a full set of the new Christmas stamps...
that’s 20 rubber stamps, one each of all the newest designs!
 
If you're already on the hop you should have come here from the lovely Lou and you now need to hop off to sweet Moni. If you'd like to join the hop, go here for the start and all the deets of the hop Ideas to Inspire blog. 
 
Don’t forget to stop by the Ideas to Inspire blog on Saturday evening when you can find out who the lucky winner is of that great prize!
