thank you, Cath...

I was very saddened to hear the news of Cath leaving Moxie Fab World and Paper Crafts Magazine, as were so many others. So many of us wanted to say thank you to Cath for everything, all of her insights, trend spotting, blogging, inspiration and for whole-heartedly encouraging crafters on. We (heart) you, and everything you've done for us, Cath!!

In honor of her, a *few* of us have put together a blog hop. HA! This may be the biggest blog hop ever with all 285 of us! (If you are following the hop, you might have arrived here from Ang Mansfield's blog. If you want to start at the beginning, go to Moxie Fab World.)

I made a card for Cath, and I think this sentiment says it all. "Twinkle, twinkle little star, do you know how very loved you are?"

For supplies, in case you are wondering, I used lots of Pink Paislee here: a Color Wash 6x6" paper in the background, then I clipped a Hope Chest butterfly onto an Artisan star. Stamped the bottom with a sentiment from Papertrey Ink's Super Stars stamp set. Washi tape adorns the top (from one of my Studio Calico kits). That's it!


I want to wish Cath all the best on her future endeavors. We will truly miss her encouraging spirit in the paper crafting world. To see more cards on the hop, next go to Niki Meiners' blog: http://365daysofcrafts.com/moxie-fab/ Thanks for stopping by.
