Moxie Fab Thanks



Well, it's only been a week and I miss her already! Cath's eye for design coming to my inbox daily from the Moxie Fab World always proved inspirational, and boy is her silence apparent.

What kind of card do you make for someone who gave so much of herself EVERY day? I was going to pick a favorite challenge and make a card based on that, but how do I know that she'd like the card? So I decided to make a card based on a design that she had pinned (surely she likes those).


I used the Britney Spears song lyrics card.


Loving my growing collection of alpha dies, even though they're sometimes hard to line up. Still loving patterned paper on the inside of the card. Those wide stripes just make me happy.


Cath, you are truly one of the brightest lights in our blogging community. I'm beyond sad that you are leaving your Moxie Fab World.

I'll end with words from one of our favorite artists (and given that his verses are so melodramatic and romantic, it proved a bit difficult to find something that didn't make it seem like I would be stalking you shortly!)

Let your courage be my model
That the north you find will be true
When there's no information
And the compass turns to nowhere that you know well
Let your soul be your pilot
Let your soul guide you
 -Sting

If you are hopping along, well done, you're over a third of the way there! You should have come from Dana Warren's blog. Now you're on your way to see what Taylor Usry has made to honor Cath.

Here's a complete list of stops ... holy smokes!!! I sure hope Cath feels the love : )
 (ETA: Darnell gave me the idea to remove these so the post would be easier to navigate. The list of all 285 Cath admirers is on the Moxie Fab World blog.)

    1. Hi Susie!

      Certainly, the first three lines are from Papertrey:
      https://www.papertreyink.com/pti-dies/papertrey-ink-block-alphabet-die-collection-set-of-30/
      https://www.papertreyink.com/pti-dies/papertrey-ink-modern-alphabet-upper-die-collection/
      https://www.papertreyink.com/stamps/headline-alphabet-stamp-set/

      and the last one is from MFT Die Namics (High Rise Alpha Upper Case)

      I really get a ton of use out of these, even though I have a Silhouette. It's just so much easier and I love the beveled edges.

      Thanks for your comment!
      Kelly
