Lili of the Valley new January release

It's time for another Lili of the Valley design team blog hop and today we’re celebrating our first launch of 2014 newbies!  There are 10 adorable new stamps in the set featuring James the Bear, Jack, Patch and Puss.


The stamps will be available to buy on the website from midday GMT on Monday 13 January and from the shop in Leeds this Saturday.

Don't forget to hop along as there are hidden prizes along the way!  The winners will be announced on Monday morning.   


2 lucky winners will each get all 10 new designs!


So here is my DT card using the very sweet James Peeping...

Oh, he is so darn cute!!!  I coloured him in with my Prismacolor pencils and used my Cuttlebug woodgrain embossing folder for the background and just a touch of patterned paper from my stash to give some interest.
You should have reached here fro the lovely Lou and you now need to hop along to marvellous Mindy.  If you've only just joined the hop, you can start from the Ideas to Inspire blog and get all the deets on how to win!
Enjoy the hop and I'll be back later with my Bellarific Friday babe post - ttfn!
