Mo's Dream Team Blog Hop

Ahoy!
If you've just tripped over the cat & stumbled onto my blog then 'welcome'. Wipe the blood off yer knees & pour yourself a stiff drink.
It's Blog Hop time again for Mo's Dream Team and here is my card. Alice is our host and has 'cruelly' chosen the theme of Easel Cards.  Now...don't laugh...regular viewers of my wee blog will know that I've never attempted anything more daring than a card folded in half without the aid of a safety net!!
I managed to find detailed instructions on how to make an Easel Card but failed miserably to get the right photo-angle...Jeesh! I'm not a gymnast yer know!! I have chosen the enchanting Summer Fairy Finna, coloured with PM's, with DP's, tags & embellies from the Papermania Rose Garden collection.
Now...if you're hopping along with us then you should have arrived here from Kerttu's gorgeous blog, if you've gate-crashed the party and wanna start back at the front door then go to Alice's blog where she'll take your coat. After me it's... Julie who I'm sure will have some groovy 'Bang! Bang!' tunes playing.
***Two lucky peeps will win a $5 voucher to spend in Mo's digi emporium chosen from all the comments on the Hop***
