Moxie Fab Thanks! Blog Hop!


Welcome! If you are just arriving on my blog today, you are in for a BIG surprise. We're celebrating Moxie Fab World and the amazing Cath Edvalson today. To start, head over to the Moxie Fab World blog.  If you arrived here from Kim Dellow's blog, you are on the right path. There are literally HUNDREDS of blogs participating in this monumental event. All for an amazing lady who united all these creative folks by her amazing inspiration. 

The card making world received some sad news the other day when Cath announced she was leaving Paper Crafts and the Moxie Fab World blog. (which she completely started and coined the phrase!) I will admit to not linking to the challenges but, this was a blog I always visited for inspiration. Many of my cards are inspired by the Tuesday Triggers and Moxie Fab posts. I am so thankful for all that Cath has contributed to our industry. 

Change can be good. 

Change is, at times, necessary. 

I think, in the end, we'll all be able to see how good and necessary this might be BUT... I am so excited to be part of this. I'm thrilled to be among such awesome talent and a community of creative ladies who also are thankful for what Cath contributed through the Moxie Fab blog. 

I created a couple of cards that were inspired by this Tuesday Trigger blog post: A Painterly Pallette



Supplies: Paper: American Crafts, Cardstock: Bazzill, Alphabet: Basic Grey, Flower: Prima Marketing, Brad: Creative Cafe, Doily: Gina's Designs Lasercuts



Supplies: Paper, Pinwheel sticker: American Crafts, Border punch: Fiskars, Stamps: Lily Bee Design

For the title of the second card, I really wanted the sentiment to be "Celebrate the Memories". I found "celebrate" and "memories" but ended up handwriting "the". Works for me!

Thank you SO much Cath for all the inspiration! I'm so thankful for you and so happy to be celebrating the Moxie Fab World with such an AMAZING crew today.

Now hop along to Laura PryorSee below for a full list of links to everyone participating in the hop. (I told you there was HUNDREDS!)

Thank you so much for these beautiful cards, Melissa! I absolutely love them and am honored you created them for little ol' me.
