Moxie Fab Thanks Blog Hop for Cath

 
Welcome to Cath's Moxie Fab Thanks Blog Hop! Along with 284 talented card makers, I am here to show my deepest gratitude and appreciation toward Cath and her contributions to the paper-crafting community. A Moxie Fab thanks to Aris (the mastermind behind the linking system InLinkz) for coming to our (Keren Baker, Taheerah A. and me) rescue and getting all the links organized! Huge thanks to Stacy Croninger over Moxie Fab World & Susan Opel who is our cheerleader for this big event! The hop starts from Moxie Fab World and ends at the stamp extraordinaire -Jennifer McGuire's blog. You should have arrived from Debby Hughes's blog.

I am surprised how my card looks somewhat similar to the blog hop banners (designed by the uber talented Kryssi from Mama Elephant). I made the card BEFORE she had the logo designed! How cool is that?
you are so loved
Supplies: Bazzill Paper, Heart Die (Simon Says Stamps), Sentiment from Loving thoughts (CAS-ual Fridays).

As the Trends Editor at Moxie Fab World, Cath has touched many paper crafters' lives, including mine. Since I was an avid submitter for Moxie Fab Challenges in the last 3 years, Cath had seen MANY of my work evolving from bad--> tolerable--> good --> better. I am so thankful that she tirelessly visited, commented my work numerous times. Every time I got a shout out or win a challenge from Moxie Fab World, my family will know ALL about it. Cath literally has that Stamp of Approval and she can make you feel like you just won an Oscar (in paper-crafting)!  The trends and inspirations that she has for us paper crafters are priceless! I am so sad upon hearing Cath's departure from Moxie Fab as she plays such a pivotal role in the crafting world. Her kind words and gentle nudge had made us a better and kinder crafter. I will continue to follow Cath over Facebook and wish her for great things that come in her way. 

Cath, you are so loved .....
 and this blog hop is our way to show you how you absolutely rock our Moxie Fab World
Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Your next stop is Nina Yang.

Taheerah (*LittleMissT*) said...

This past week has seen something extraordinary happen, and I am so honoured to have been a part of it with you. I couldn't have imagined over a week ago what we were about to undertake, how it would pull us all together, how inspiring, fun, crazy, emotional, ridiculous and amazing it would be, and how I would be lucky enough to gain two exceptional friends as a result. But, I guess that is the influence of Cath in a nutshell, isn't it?

You, my dear friend, are indeed a shining light in this community, just as Cath said. Your card is so full of the love that your big heart has for Cath, your words so echo those of my own heart, and I just love it to pieces anyway! The colours, the strips showing a heart broken yet united, the fluffy floating sequins as a bokeh of beauty and warmth that rises out... okay, maybe a bit too poetic. ;-) But you know what I mean.

Hugs to you, my sweet partner in crime. You are so loved, and you are so appreciated. And that is exactly how Cath will feel too. xoxo

Chriss Blagrave said...

Love this colorfully striped big heart. Really sums up how we feel about Cath!
