November Christmas Challenge…

 

 

Hey everyone, thanks for popping back and I hope you are all having a nice day

Time to announce our new challenge and I’m sorry to tell you that this is going to be our last one. It’s a nice easy one so lets aim for a high number of entries…   and if we beat our record of 155 (which was last month!) we’ll throw in an extra couple of prizes seeing as it’s our final challenge!!

It’s November and I know many of you are busy with your Christmas cards so our theme couldn’t really be anything else but …

Merry Christmas!

You can enter and find all the details on our Challenge Page at the top of the blog. Please remember that this is a Lili of the Valley challenge so if you use an image or topper on your card it must be one of ours, any entries that don’t comply will be deleted

Here’s a fabulous card from our Gretha to get you started, this is a bit of a different style for Gretha and I love it!

She’s used one of this years Christmas stamps, he’s called My Snowman Friend and the tags are from the Christmas Sentiment Tags set

First prize is your choice of 3 small rubber stamps and that goes to entry 116 which is Rainey’s Craft Room

Second prize is your choice of one of our A5 clear stamp sets and the winner of that is entry 140 Janja

Finally our third prize of a £10 Ribbon Girl voucher goes to entry 97 and that was yours Iola

Well done ladies, please send your address details to erica@liliofthevalley.co.uk

The prizes winners are drawn at random but as always we will have a good look through all your lovely cards and choose our Top 5 shortly

See you tomorrow all, have a great Monday
