It's Hippity Hop Thursday with Mos Dream Team!

Well the months are just speeding by and we've still not had any summer sun here in the UK which is maybe why I thought of using this gorgeous Mo Manning image of this little guy flying his kite which you can find here - you need blustery winds for that don't you!!
It's the third Thursday in the month which means it's time for our monthly hop on Mos Dream Team to showcase lots of  Mo's gorgeous images!!
You should have arrived here from the fabulous Jane's blog but if you want to hop all the way, pop back  to Mina's blog, who is hosting this month's hop and is therefore the start.
The theme of Ribbon for this month's challenge has been chosen by the queen of ribbon, Mina, which, as you can see I've  used to create all the little bows on my little guy's kite as well as the bigger one he is part of!  We were watching some old family videos the other night and came across some film of my hubby flying a kite with my own little guy, Harry, when he was about 18 months - oh he was so cute!!  ( He's now my big little guy in my newly updated pic in my side bar).
I've used a variety of Websters pages on my card and you can just see here that I   paper-pieced the kit to match the one being flown on the paper below. These teeny bows I made myself with my bow-easy but the ones on the bigger string were ready made from stash.
The little row of striped buttons seemed to suit the seaside theme and are a useful barrier to hold the easel in place.
The ribbon on the kite below is not stuck down so that the card can be collapsed for posting - now wouldn't that have been silly!!! 
Finally just a side view to show the easel a little better.
Your next stop  on the hop is  Debby's blog- I'm sure she'll have a feat of paper-piecing magic to show you that will put my little kite to shame!!
Have fun hopping and don't forget to leave a comment as you visit, as there will be a couple of  $5 vouchers hidden along the way for someone to win - it could be you!!!

Hello!

Great way to use the ribbon - very creative and so pretty on the card! We could not fly any kites here either in the 100+ degree heat we have been having - wish we could exchange it for rain! Wishing you a happy day!

Hugs,
