Moxie Fab Thank You Blog Hop


If you are a papercrafter, there is no doubt that you will have heard of the wonderful Cath Edvalson, Trends Editor at Paper Crafts Magazine. Sadly, Cath has announced that she will be leaving Paper Crafts for pastures new. To thank Cath for all her hard work and inspiration, some lovely ladies have put together a *ginormous* blog hop as a way for paper crafters around the world to share their thanks and love for Cath by producing a card, either to send to Cath or to celebrate all things Moxie Fab, you can see the blog hop post here.

I have been an avid reader of the Moxie Fab World blog for a long time and will be sad to not share the wonderful prompts and inspiration each week. Here is my card

I decided to work with my current favourite stamping set (Fresh Cut Florals, Wplus9) and I love how it turned out, I based it on my love of blue delft porcelain. I don't have too many good luck sentiments but I love the 'have a lovely day' sentiment which can be used for so many different occasions and I thought it was just perfect for this card.

I have had the perforated paper for a few years, and I like how it added texture to the background, whilst still being flat and easy for posting. I raised some of the flowers on foam pads for interest and kept the rest of the card very clean and simple. Now to pop it in the post so it can wing it's way to Cath via the lovely Teri Anderson.

If you have just stopped by on your way around the hop, you may have come from the lovely;

Thank you Cath for 8 1/2 years of inspiration and encouragement for crafters eveywhere! Wishing you lots of luck, sunshine and rainbows!

  15. It's taking me a LONG time to visit everyone's blogs and I'm sorry for that! But I want to visit them all and give everyone some love. :) I have this stamp set as well, Ang, but I've not thought about doing a monochromatic scheme with them. This is gorgeous!!
