Moxie Fab Thanks! blog hop


grateful for you by Kimberly Crawford

Today is all about Cath Edvalson and her Moxie Fab World. Well, now it is time for Cath to move on and have her next adventure in life. This hop today is to show her just how much she has meant to us all personally and what she has meant to the industry! Its a massive hop. But I think that shows just how amazing she is!


I love this photo. CHA-W 2013. Disneyland, Anaheim, CA.

Cath was my first Paper Crafts cheerleader. She was kind and encouraging, and frankly, the first time I met her, I couldn't believe that she knew my work! Cath is truly a lovely person. She is passionate and thoughtful and intelligent. I honestly could go on and on about her, never saying enough. Moxie Fab is just not going to be the same without her because she is the epitome of Moxie Fab.

grateful for you cu by Kimberly Crawford

Cath, this card is for you. Technique-y, as always. :)

To create this card, I die cut post-it notes with butterfly die templates. Then I placed them on a white cardstock panel. I stamped over the entire panel with Interlocking Borders from Lawn Fawn. Once I removed the post-it notes, I was left with cool butterflies! I added enamel dots (shocking, right?) to the centers and a sentiment.

You should have arrived here from my fellow Go-To-Gal Laura Williams'  blog. And head off to my sweet friend, Vera Yates.

If you want to see the entire hop list, please check out Moxie Fab World. There will also be a place on the blog for you to share your project and thanks with Cath.

thanks for stopping by!
