Fairy Friends mini hop…

Good morning crafty friends, thanks for visiting our Ideas to Inspire blog

Thank you for all your orders of the new papers pads, we’re so pleased that you love them as much as we do!

We’ll get them posted out as quickly as possible but please bear in mind that there is no post over the Easter weekend so they might take a few days longer than usual to reach you

 

We’re having a mini hop today, but first a couple of candy winners…

from Monday it was you Eemeli 

…and yesterday’s winner is CleverCrafter

Well done lovely ladies, email erica@liliofthevalley.co.uk with your addresses

To celebrate our 10th birthday we are bringing out some new fairy stamps, watch out for sneaky peeks starting soon   ….they promise to be our cutest fairies ever!!

Before we start with the new designs the DT have been revisiting some of our older fairy images and today we are holding a fun hop using the adorable Fairy Friends stamp

We’ve all used this same stamp and have come up with some very different cards and projects to show you today

Just ‘hop’ from one blog to another following the links and leave a comment on each post, we’ll have a couple of winners and you will each be able to choose 2 of the small fairy stamps as your prize


We don’t know where the goodies are so make sure you visit and comment on every blog

The winners will be drawn at random from all the comments left on the 2 blogs where the prizes were hidden


Here's a list of all the blogs taking part;

Ideas to Inspire

Anne

Becky

Elise

Fleur

Jen

Lou

Mary J

Mindy

Pops

 

Some of our regular visitors will have already seen this fabulous exploding box but because we are using this stamp today I thought it was a good chance to show it again for our newer bloggers…

This was made by the very clever Katarina who used to be on our Design Team. She wrote us a tutorial to make the exploding box which you can find on the website here

You might have noticed that our Pops is joining in the hop too, Pops had a few things going on at home so she’s been taking a break from the DT and working behind the scenes for a while, lovely to have you back Pops!

Next stop is my blog here and if you get lost you can start again here at the beginning and pick the links up again

The winners will be announced next week

*

I’m having a few days off now so the DT will be taking over the posts, make sure you stop by and see what they’ve been making

I didn’t want the girls to have to be drawing candy winners each day so what we’ll do this week is have 2 larger prizes of sentiment stamp sets. I’ll draw the winners when I come back after Easter along with today’s hop winners. Make sure you still leave a comment each day to support the DT and also if you want to in the draw for one of those prizes

Have a fabulous Easter everyone, I’ll see you next week xx
