LOTV Blog Hop and Competition and new WOC Challenge!

Today I have a card for the Lili of the Valley 9th Birthday Celebrations Blog Hop!
Before I get to all the information about that, this is also my card for the new challenge at
 Wild Orchid Crafts. Our theme this week is to use daisies. I've used my Cosmo Daisies. I just love these, they are my favorite of the daisy family! :)
 
To kick off our Lili of the Valley 9th birthday celebrations we are having a competition and a fun design team blog hop!
Make sure you visit all the blogs on the list because as usual there will be hidden prizes along the way and the winners will be picked at random from the comments that are left on the cards
For our competition we’d like you to make us a card for our birthday using a LOTV Stamp. The design team have all made a birthday card for the hop which should give you a few ideas
You can enter using the linky, you can upload your card to Facebook, or if you don’t have either of those you can email a picture of your card to admin@liliofthevalley.co.uk ...it doesn’t matter how you enter, all the cards will go into the prize draw
The competition closes at 6pm on Saturday the 2nd of March
The winning card will be drawn at random ...and because it’s our 9th birthday the prize is 9 stamps of your choice worth £40.00!
We will also pick our top 3 from the blog and the Facebook entries and these cards will be featured on the Ideas to Inspire blog
That’s not all ...the designers of our top 3 cards will be asked to join us for a much sought after
 guest DT spot so I’m sure you’ll agree it’s well worth entering
The rules are simple;
1. Make us a birthday card using a LOTV Stamp and enter it either using the linky below or upload it to our Facebook page
2. Mention the competition on your own blog and put this image on your sidebar
 
That’s it ... we’ll look forward to seeing all your lovely cards!
Start here to join in with the blog hop and follow the links, don’t forget to comment as you go to be in with a chance of winning a hidden prize;
                             Mindy  < you are here ♥
Enjoy ...and good luck!!
 
I hope to see you join us at Wild Orchid Crafts and for the LOTV competition!
Boy, I'm sure lucky to be apart of these 2 amazing teams! ♥
