A Moxie Fab "Thank You" blog Hop


Today is going to be a fabulous day!!  Not just because it is the weekend, and most of us have two whole days to craft, spend time with family & friends, watch football, eat great food, etc....but this Saturday is super extra special.  Today we are honoring our amazing friend, Cath Edvalson, for all the amazing work she has done for us as an editor of Paper Crafts Magazine & author of the Moxie Fab blog.  Cath coined the term "moxie fab" long ago, & it has been an ever present part of this crafting world of ours....and I am sure it will remain even as Cath departs from her position with Paper Crafts Mag.

And this isn't your average blog hop....this is the MOTHER of all blog hops.  Cath has reached so many crafters & manufacturers...that 285 of us are taking part in telling her THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts {yep- I'm yelling it.}

I still remember how happy my heart was when I saw my "Moxie Fabber of the Week" post {holy crap- that was almost THREE years ago} & read the thoughtful words that Cath had to say about me.  It truly warms my heart to this day, & it is my gentle reminder that I need to get back to this community of mine.  This summer & fall has taken its toll on me...I haven't had the time to be as much of a presence in this industry as I once was. I am looking forward to getting fully settled into my new home & back to being an active part of my crafty community again. 

I have been lucky enough to have my cards occasionally featured on the Moxie Fab blog, & I've won a couple contests here & there.....and I will truly miss what Cath shared with us each & every day on the Moxie Fab blog.  So, with that being said....here is my card for Cath.  Made specifically & just for her! :)
This card is pretty much all product from the Dear Lizzy "Polka Dot Party" collection....it was just perfect to create a custom crafty card just for Cath!

Once again....THANK YOU Cath for all you have done in this industry.  Thank you for all the inspiration.  Thank you for what Moxie Fab has become to ALL of us.  Thank you for your thoughtfulness & encouragement.  Thank you for the blog comments!  And thank you for just being the amazing person you are!

Since this is the mother of all blog hops, here is some information for you in case you weren't aware of it, or if you've gotten lost along the way.

You should have come to my blog from the Glitz Design blog.

You will now hop on to Heather Nichol's blog.

And there is a complete list of ALL blogs at the Moxie Fab blog.

Alright...I think you've got all the details, and I really hope you just have a wonderful time seeing all the amazing creations today!

Until later,
~L.
