Apology from The Southern Girls Design Team.....

A huge thankyou to all our entries in our Anything Goes Challenge, we were really overwhelmed with the amount of entries and the high stamdard of all the entries. Unfortunately due to a huge range of reasons including computer problems, time restrictions and being away on holiday to name a few alot of the entries did not get commented on. We are TRULY sorry to anyone who was forgotten but rest assured we think you are all fabulous and we appreciate you taking the time to play along with us.

Laila Ansbergs started Lili of the Valley in 2004 and it has grown since then to be a well respected and much loved company in the UK crafting world. All the initial designs were Laila's and they soon became really popular... at UK Craft Shows, on Crafting TV and of course on www.liliofthevalley.co.uk.

Joined by her friend Lisa Barnes, the business has expanded and Lili of the Valley now works with other artists to bring you a wide range of gorgeous designs, both for stamps and die cut designs. Laila still translates all the images into the black and white stamp designs, but the business of running Lili of the Valley now takes too long for her to design artwork too!

Lili of the Valley Ltd popularity continues to grow as crafters from around the world discover the company's lovely designs.

OUR PHILOSOPHYAt Lili of the Valley, we strive to produce excellent quality products with beautiful designs that enable you to make lovely cards every time, simply and easily. We also pride ourselves on taking care with everything we do to make sure you receive great products, at a good price and as quickly as possible. We hope you agree!
