A Moxie Fab Thanks Blog Hop!!


When Cath announced that she would be leaving Moxie Fab World, my heart hit the floor. Her blog posts brightened my day and I always had a sense of anticipation for what she would have in store for us each time I opened that day's post.

Cath has a special place in my heart because she noticed my work, as she did so many of us card makers, and gave me the confidence to keep on doing what brings me such joy.  Her naming me as a Moxie Fabber of the week is one of my personal highlights.  She praised us for our creativity, and then gave us inspiration after inspiration to keep our creative genes growing.

So when I was contacted to be a part of this blog hop for Cath, I was in immediately.  What a wonderful way to show Cath how much she means to each of us!  This may well be the biggest hop in history, and that's as it should be, because it gives us all the chance to honor a very special lady.  You should have arrived here from Jamie Gracz/Avery Elle's blog.  Here's my card for Cath, from the heart! The elements on this card are all things that mean something to me, and I hope it makes her smile.


I wish you as much joy as you have given us.  Enjoy this resting time, recharge, and I know that you'll be back with us doing something that is meaningful to you and to us very soon!

Your next stop on the hop is Michelle Woerner's blog.  Enjoy!  And many thanks to Keren Baker, who came up with this fabulous idea and organized the whole thing!

Oh Lin! I absolutely *adore* this card! It is so thoughtful, and it is so *you.* As one of your biggest fans, I am honored that you created it for little ol' me.

You have been a constant source of inspiration to me since the very beginning, Lin, and I have loved watching your card skills evolve and grow as the years have passed by. Thank you *so much* for the love and support you have shown me and the Moxie Fab World. I am *so glad* that I have gotten to know you as well as I have along the way. Hugs and loves to you, my ever moxie fab friend! :)
