Farewell, Cath!

cathcard
Welcome to what might be the biggest blog hop ever!  As you all know by now, Paper Crafts Magazine has undergone some major changes recently, including discontinuing the printed version of the magazine.  All subscriptions will be/are no digital only.  And, as part of these changes, Moxie Fab Cath's position was eliminated.  To say I'm sad is a huge understatement.  BUT, I am grateful that I know we will keep in touch and that this amazing industry brought us together.  You should have arrived from Anieszka Malyszek

kateandcath Here's a picture me and Cath from CHA.  Isn't she cute?  Cath has been such a sweet friend over the past few years, especially supportive after our beloved Katie Renz passed away (two years ago this week).  We had some pretty heavy conversations during that time and I will never forget her support.

So, today we all come today in a giant blog hop to say THANKS and wish her well in whatever new endeavors await.  She will ALWAYS be Moxie Fab.

For my card I used the Woven A2 Embossing folder for my background and then some Into The Woods paper.  I used my Classic Ric Rac Edgeabilities to die cut the orange cardstock, layered some white faux suede ribbon and then used my fav Stiched Leaves die.  I stamped an encouraging little sentiment and heart (using Memento ink) from the new Paper Smooches Group Hugs set.  (Love that new set!)  I added a touch of Stickles on the heard and then I popped everything up on some dimensional dots and that's it!  Next up on the hop is my sweet friend, Cindy Lawrence!  Enjoy...and thanks for hopping through.

Cath, you are SO very loved and will be so very missed.  You have no idea what a huge inspiration you've been and the impact on this industry that you've had.

Happy Saturday, folks!
