Moxie Fab Thanks Blog Hop! LIM #145

Hello, Moxie World!

If you are looking for the Thanksgiving Inspiration Event click here!
 
~~~
Hosted by

This post is part of a blog hop in tribute to Cath Edvalson.  You should have arrived here from Tyra's blog, Just Tyra.

Cath wrote a very heartfelt goodbye post and since I can't say it any better than she did, I'm going to turn her words to us right back at her!
It has been an honor to have you as a part of your lives, Cath. And though we will miss the Moxie Fab World and the role it has played in our lives so very much, we will always cherish the good times we have shared, the support you have offered, the inspiration you provided us, and the love and respect we feel for you, now and always!
Cath, you said, "But nothing lasts forever, . . .  ."  I beg to differ.  Because of you, Moxie Fab World will last forever in our memories!  Again, paraphrasing your own words: 
The Moxie Fab World has been a rare and wonderful gift in our lives, and so have you, my moxie fab friend. Thank you for the inspiration you gave us, the love you have shared, and for helping to make our lives so incredibly rich.
It will always be a moxie fab world!
~~~

Using this Tuesday Trigger from last year (which I wasn't able to play in) as my inspiration,
 
I made this card for Cath,
For my moxie flower, I used the stem from a Hero Arts "Fanciful Dot Filament" and then added "flower" curls using some unnamed small stamps I've had for ages:
It's a wonderful coinkydink that the challenge opening today at Less Is More is one-layer thank you cards, so I'll be entering my card there.  Thank you, Chrissie and Jen!!

~~~

At the end of my post is the extraordinary list of participants showing their love for Cath today.  Next on the hop is Jen of Newton's Nook Designs. 

That's a lot of hopping to do, so I won't keep you.  By the way, you don't have to hop through the whole list today.  Your poor little bunny legs couldn't do it!  Visit the participants at your leisure and enjoy this tribute and the mountains of inspiration for days and weeks to come!

~~~

Enjoy your day!  No, seriously, enjoy.  LITS*  
 
As always, thank you for coming by the Playhouse and special thanks to you if you take the time to leave a comment and/or join as a follower!  Please let me know you came by, so I can be sure and return the flavor! 

 
*Life Is Too Short!

I've edited my post to remove the 285 participant links so you don't have to scroll down so far to add your comment.  If you would like to access the full list, please click here and you will be directed to Moxie Fab World.  Thank you!

Alanna said...

What a darling little card.

Bonnie said...

I was so upset that Paper Crafts decided to discontinue their paper magazine. How I looked forward to getting it in the mail and I love being able to carry it from place to place. Digital just doesn't do the same thing. But then to see that Cath is leavin,(and Moxie Fab just can't be Moxie fab without her no matter what they say)I can't imagine what they're thinking! Anyway, enough spouting off. I love your bright Moxie Fab flowers and I know that they delighted Cath!

Laurie said...

Oh my goodness, Darnell! Thank you so much for this beautiful card, and I am incredibly touched by the way you turned my own words back on me. There is some deep insight there I hadn't really been aware of before, and I have you to thank for it.

Thanks, also, for all the love and support you have shown me and the Moxie Fab World. I had such an incredibly good time there, and I'm *so glad* I got to know you along the way! Hugs and loves to you, my moxie fab friend! :)
