I love LOTV!!! Happy 9th Birthday !!!!

Hello and thank you for stopping by!!! Today is the 9th Birthday of one of my absolute favorite Stampingcompanies. LOTV!!! What is LOTV you will ask. LOTV stands for Lili of the Valley they are from the United Kingdom and make the most adorable stamps. I´m a huge fan of their work and have a bunch of their stamps ...and LOVE them!!You should pop over to their website and have a look yourself.
Today on their birthday they have a PARTY going on in their shop in Leeds and also on their Facebook page. You should have a look and join in. I´m sure I will be there  (online) :)
To celebrate with all their customers they also have a great Birthday Giveaway challenge on their blog.
All you have to do to enter is to make a Birthdaycard and share it on your blog, their facebookpage or to send it to them via email til 6PM (UK time) today. They offer a fantastic prize, of 9 stamps of your choice, to win. All of their stamps are amazing and they have a wide amount of stamps to pick from for all kind of occassions. 

So to celebrate their awesome Birthday I made this cute birthdaycard using some of their great products that I own.

I will explain my card from top to bottom :) The background-pattern-paper is from the Springthing Matstack from DCWV. I inked  the edges of the card with my dauber and the peeled paint distressink from Ranger.

On the top of the card I stamped a very cute sentiment from the A5 Verses set from LOTV.

The Image I used is from their Summer Bears Companion Stamp Set and I colored it with Distressinks. I cut it with a Die from Nellie Snellen and embossed it too. I added the It´s your Day stamp from the Calendars Stamp set with the peeled paint distressink.

Under the image I tied a light green ribbon to a bow and added a button from studio g. 

On the bottom of the card I stamped the birthdaygreeting from the Handwritten phrases set. 

 I love how harmonic the paper, inks, image and all elements appear and work together :) I just LOTV stamps and they help me to make nice and very cute cards :)
Thank you LOTV for making such adorable stamps and also great sentiment stamps.
HAPPY BIRTHAY LOTV!!!! I wish you more successful years ahead and more wonderful stamps to come :)
What do you think?
I hope everyone is going having  a great weekend. See you all soon :)
