Mo's Dream Team Monthly Blog Hop!!


Yes it's the 3rd Thursday in the Month and you know what that means!!  It's time for our monthly hop with the gorgeous gals on Mo's Dream Team.  The theme this month has been chosen by our wonderful Gretha who has chosen a theme of Animals on a Christmas Card.  
You should have arrived here from Jane's blog, who I'm sure had something very witty to say and something very fabulous to show you but if you landed here randomly and you want to play along, hop back to Gretha's blog to start at the very beginning ( I feel a song coming on!!)

Talking of singing, I've chosen the fabulous image, Singin So Beautiful, for my card.
The paper on the base part of the easel is a Magnolia  12x12 sheet that I bought in the sales a while ago.  The music and snow flurry dies are Memory Box and the rest of the embellies are from stash.
I've used a Craftwork Cards, ready cut easel card base as my starting point and then cut the image with a similar shaped Go Create die.   I used a rooftop scene Stamp from Sheena Douglas because I just felt sure this cheeky trio were singing from the rooftops!!
A close up of that teeny, tiny mouse - didn't even realise that he was there, initially, what a great detail!!
I've used the bell trim to echo the bell collar that one of the cats is wearing.

Just a side view to finish off - always hard to show easel cards properly, I think.

Right then, well done for making it this far down my post - your next stop on the hop is over to the fabulous Debby4000's blog, who will have something wondrous to show you, I'm sure!   Oh and while you're hopping, don't forget to leave a comment on each of the team's blogs - there are a couple of vouchers for $5 dollars to spend in Mo's store for a couple of lucky commentors and it could be you!
Thanks for hopping in!
