Some news, skipping and summer church …





Morning all, how are you today?



A couple of newsy bits for you before today's card;

*
 
Firstly here’s last weeks Theme Thursday winner…



Capture
 
It’s number 47 and that was you Lotte 
Well done, email erica@liliofthevalley with your address   …you’ve won the Posy Trio stamp

*


Don’t forget that it’s the first Saturday of the month this weekend so our shop will be open 10-4
If you’re travelling a long way why not make a day of it and do one of our fab workshops with Dawny P?
Full details are on the website here, there are still places available

*

Next I have a date for your diaries! We’re planning our Autumn open day and it will be on September 7th. Keep an eye on here and the website for details shortly but as always there will be lots going on and it’s a great day out

*

Finally, make sure you stop by tomorrow when we’ll have our design team blog hop. There will be lots of inspiration for using the new stamps, there will be prizes along the way   …and, I’ll have some exciting news for you!



***



Today’s card is by our clever Elise and she’s used 2 of the new stamps…





The 2 stamps are Skipping and then in the background is Summer Church – how imaginative!





She’s made a little matching tag that tucks in with 2 of our Pretty Vintage stamps; Statements - Fabulous and Pretty Grungy – Good Times
There are a couple of extra details that you might not notice on first looking, the butterfly is from the Grunge Elements set and the swirly corner is a stamp from the Grunge Swirls set

*


Hope you like it!    …see you tomorrow for the hop
