For Cath (sans CHA) with Love Blog Hop

As many of you will know, Moxie Fab World's Cath Edvalson (Trends Editor of Paper Crafts) won't be able to attend CHA next week due to a nasty pain in one of her shoulders. So... to cheer her up and thank her for "bringing" all of us to CHA with her during these past years, I thought we could surprise her with a blog hop..... 

 The above was what Lorena wrote for our Facebook event. My sweet blog friend Lorena first Flickr mailed me about her idea (she already has Susan Opel's OK) and before you know it, with a little input and help from me, a blog hop was born within an hour! 

Here we are today to share our creations to cheer Cath up! Any Get Well Soon/Feel Better/Sending hugs... cards/creations are much appreciated. After all, Cath has done so much for us card-makers over at Moxie Fab World, this is a great way to show her our appreciation and love! 

I used this cute Penguin Doc stamp from the Memory Box and made this card with some Japanese Washi tape, Hero Arts Heart stamp and SRM stickers (sentiment). 

get well soon
You can skip this part if you want---> Cath encouraged me when I first started submitting cards to the challenges over at Moxie Fab challenges back in 2010. I was feeling frustrated after many attempts with poor results. So I wrote her an e-mail (!!) ---the nerve I had!!  Cath took her precious time to write me a lengthy e-mail in return. She encouraged me to keep the submissions coming and to just keep having FUN.... That e-mail alone made a huge difference to me in my little card world! So thank you very much for that, Cath! I hope your shoulder condition will greatly improve and that the specialist has the wisdom to solve this nasty shoulder pain and come up with a great treatment plan. With this card, I hope to make your day a bit brighter!
With or without you being at CHA, you are always the moxie fab Cath!! 

Please enjoy the blog hops from all the talented and sweet card-makers all over the world! Big thanks to Lorena-my partner in "crime" hop! Please link up your project post with the inLinkz if you made one already! If not, there is still time to join!

How super cute! I love the bit of washi tape that reminds me of a bandage and the pop of red from the heart. Thanks so much for helping to organize this event, Virginia!

hilde said...

I'm afraid I'm not able to make a card (I don't have a blog, but I do have flickr), cause I'm moving today to my boyfriends house, so all my craft supplies are in boxes right now. So, I don't know when I can reach for everything, so I'm saying here, Cath, I hope you feel better soon! If I can, I will make a card for you and upload it here!

Oh my goodness, Virginia! I am absolutely overwhelmed by this generous show of love and support for little old me. You and Lorena are so incredibly sweet to organize this, and I can't wait to click through the links, that is, if I can start seeing through my happy tears.

I moxie love your cute little penguin card (the colors are fantastic!), and I want you to know how glad I am that you sent me that email once upon a time, because it was the beginning of a friendship for which I am extremely grateful.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I not only feel "cheered up," but ever thankful to know such a thoughtful group of moxie fab friends.

All my love,
Cath
