ENTER OUR MONTHLY CHALLENGE



 

 
 
 


Welcome everyone to our Lili of the Valley monthly challenge!



On the 1st of every month (or the first Monday if it falls on a weekend) we will have a new challenge and you will have until the end of that month to make us a card or other paper crafting project

 We've had a great response to our challenge, thank you everyone for joining in and also for all your lovely comments
 
 

Because World Card Making Day falls in October we thought we would have a nice easy challenge so that everyone can play along

Anything Goes!

This month you can create whatever you like but remember if you use an image on your card it must be one of ours for you to be eligible to enter the challenge
We are also running the challenge on Split Coast Stampers throughout October too so if you haven't visited then do go and have a look

 
 
  

There are 3 prizes up for grabs;

1st prize - your choice of 3 of our small rubber stamps

2nd prize - your choice of one of our A5 clear stamp sheets

3rd prize - a £10 voucher to spend at the Ribbon  Girl



http://www.ribbongirl.co.uk/catalog/




 
 
 We will also pick our top 5...
drawing the winners at random gives everyone a fair chance but we appreciate that some of you do take a lot of time and effort making your cards and projects so we do like to choose our own favourites! This is just for fun and you will get a banner to display on your blog



*

 
I have some lovely inspiration to get you started from our Design Team, because we are retiring some of our older stamps I've picked cards using some of those but do remember that stock on these is limited (very limited on certain designs) and when they're gone they're gone! 
 

 

Little Pirate Bear 

Party Pup
 
Number 7 Bear

 Milly Hello
 
 
 James In The Snow
 
Abracadabra
 
Sailing Boat 
 
Deck The Halls
 
Pom Pom
 
 
A couple of rules; this is a Lili of the Valley challenge so you if you choose to use an image on your entry it must be a Lili of the Valley image. It must be a new make (no cheating and back linking to old posts please!)
You can enter up to 5 times but each entry must be a brand new item and not one that has been shown before
 
To make it fair to those that do comply, any entries that are not eligible will be deleted
 

 We do try to comment on all the entries if time permits, please remove the word verification from your blog if you have it enabled as this does make commenting time consuming
Apologies in advance if we don't manage to get round everyone - we do look at them all to pick our top 5 even if we don't get chance to comment
 
 
*

To enter simply link your entry below and give our challenge a mention on your own blog. Here is a little banner that you can display on your blogs with a link to our challenge

 
 

 


If you don't have a blog then you can email us your entry to anne@liliofthevalley.co.uk
The email entries will be added and entered into the prize draw
 
Good luck!

    1. Hi Kate, no not at all.
      Lili's Little Fairies is a fan site and is not run by Lili of the Valley so it's a separate thing x

  21. Just found that others sent a baby boy card as well, so mine (that I just sent by mail) will be in good company. Not too enthusiastic with "male motifs" myself, either, to be honest...
    Keep my fingers crossed!
    Happy Weekend everybody!

  58. Oh no, I meant to pop "GDT" after my name on entry 16 Annette (Netty). :0( I can't seem to edit it now and I don't want to link it up again as that's not fair to link the same card twice. Is it too late to apply? (although I don't stand much chance against the other entries; wow, some of those are oh-so-gorgeous).

  80. Hi Anne

    Please can you tell me when will you be drawing the winners of the challenge for January or if I have missed them where abouts are they? Also just in case I am ever lucky enough to get chosen what does a guest designer do. What kind of comitment is there. ie a card a week for a month ect sorry to be so dense but I am still new to the world of card challenges. Love yours by the way and your blog and site is amazing. Many Thanks Maria

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Maria, there will be a post going on the blog shortly with the January winners.
      A guest designer joins us for a month and would need to make 4 cards for us to show during that month.
      Our February guest was announced on Saturday if you want to look at the post and see what we do. Ideally you would need to have your own blog to do it.
      Hope that helps, Anne x
