Mo's Dream Team Blog Hop


It's that time of the month when Mo's Dream Team get together to celebrate Mo's gorgeous images with a Blog Hop. This month our fantabulous hostess with the mostess is Mina and she's chosen a fabulous embellishment to showcase - RIBBONS!

If you're already hopping along you should have landed here from the oh so talented Alice's blog


I've used one of Mo's adorable Christmas Elves to play with and I wanted the "candy cane" ribbon to be the other star of the show. This little elf is Pipa and you can find her HERE - I love the fact she's hanging upside down - it appeals to my quirky nature - LOL. I used my Grand Nestabilities to create a circle card - it's reminiscent of Christmas ornaments too which appealed to me. I cut out the centre of the card front and "strung" Pipa in the hole with some cotton thread (it's anchored at 3 points and hidden at the back of the image under a plain backing). 

As I'm the last stop on the hop you can always head back to Mina's blog if you missed any stops. And don't forget to check out our DT BLOG for regular posts from the Dream Team.

And if you get lost along the way here's the complete hop list - and you'll find the links on my left sidebar under Mo's banner.

Gorgeous ribbon choice and you must have been really 'in synch' with Julie when making this card. It is so clever. You've used a favourite set of papers as well.
