Moxie Fab Thanks! Blog Hop



There's a GINORMOUS blog hop going on today (last count it was 285 blogs!) and I'm so excited to be a part of this "flash mob blogging" to honor one of my papercrafting idols - Cath Edvalson - who has recently shared the sad news that she will be leaving her position at Paper Crafts magazine (you can read her last blog post HERE)!  She has been such an inspiration on the Moxie Fab World blog with her many unique photos...great Tuesday Trigger challenges...watchdog of all things trendy in the papercrafting world...and the list goes on and on!  Hopefully, you have already been hopping along and have come my way from Natasha Kara's blog.

If you need to go to the "launching pad" (aka starting point) of this moxie fab blog hop, please go to the Moxie Fab World blog to get all the details and the master list of all the participants!  

My big dilemma was deciding on what sentiment would be fitting for Cath.   I couldn't decide on just one, so I went with a current trendy style and created some subway art for the focal point!


 I went to my stash of Verve stamps (Julee rocks the fonts in her designs!) and pulled these sentiments from 5 different sets.  I then added some flowers from a fave WPlus9 set - Fresh Cut Florals - to echo the flowers in the designer paper.  A heart border and some sequins finished it off.


 I won't prolong this post, because I know you've got other blogs to visit, so I'll direct you to the next blog stop which is Shemaine Smith.

To Cath...you will be missed, but I have no doubt that you will journey on to another amazing, moxie fab level of creativity!  ((HUGS))

STAMPS: Fresh Cut Florals by WPlus9; To the Moon, Take Note, Wings of Love, Brighter Days, Bountiful Backgrounds - all by Verve.
PAPER: Kate & Co "Cambridge Court" 6x6 pad by MME, White, Black.
INK: Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Versafine Onyx Black.
ACCESSORIES: Stitched square die by Lil' Inker Designs, Fresh Cut Florals die set by WPlus9, Avery Elle sequins, Corner chomper.
