Moxie Fab Blog Hop

Celebrate!
Hey!

Welcome to one truly special, one in a blog-time, blog hop full of awesomeness for one extremely special lady. Yes, welcome to the Moxie Fab Thanks Blog Hop.


You should have hippety hopped over here from Daniela Dobson. If you haven't, be sure to start the mega blog hop here. :)

Unless you've been hiding under a rock, you'll have heard the news that the one and only, Miss Moxie Fab herself, Cath Edvalson is moving on to pastures new. Cath is the personification of this wonderful paper crafting community. She represents everything there is to admire and love about it. She's there with words (or pictures!) of encouragement, a personal cheerleader for us all, and always helping us grow as designers. She has had way more of a positive impact on me then she'll ever know, and I'll be grateful, always. Cath, you are AMAZING! :D

Now it's beyond sad to see Cath leave, but this blog hop is about celebrating an amazing and wonderful woman. So I may be breaking the mold, but I wanted to create a celebratory card in the spirit of the hop. I had to try my best to give this card a Moxie Fab feel so kept it trendy with neon embossing and arrows (cut from the Southwest cartridge using my Cricut Mini). I also took a step outside of my comfort zone (something that Cath has constantly inspired me to do) and experimented with using two different coloured neon embossing powders on one sentiment for an ombre effect (another trend!)

Right, before I well up, that's enough babbling from me; there's so much hopping and inspiration to be be seen! Next on your hopping adventure is Sylvia Blum. Happy hopping, and happy weekend! :)
