Moxie Fab Blog Hop: Thank You Cath!


You are joining us from Erum Tasneem's blog.  

Welcome to the SRM Blog!  We are so excited to be participating in this Mega Moxie Fab Blog Hop, a celebration honoring Cath Edvalson.  And by the way, we are also doing a giveaway of lots of delicious Thank You stickers.  Be sure you are a follower and leave a comment and you will be in the running for one of 5 Fab packets to be given away. 

Today on the SRM Blog we are all about saying thank you to Cath Edvalson who has had such a great impact on the paper crafting industry.  Her Moxie Fab World Blog has inspired us all with her keen eye for color, beauty and talent.  She has shared with us so many wonderful photos that have inspired and she's found so many paper crafters to feature that she deemed to be Moxie Fab. 

Cheers to you Cath!  You have done a great job and you will truly be missed. 


Now it's time to share some Thank You cards and projects with you from and All Star cast of past and current SRM Design Team members that have a special connection to Cath. 

First up is Rae Barthel.  Rae was a member of SRM's 2011 Design Team and the 2010 Gallery Idol Winner sponsored by Paper Crafts magazine.  I think that Cath would agree that Rae is totally FAB!


Nina Brackett was on SRM's very first 2010 Design Team as well as being an Emeritus designer on the 2011 team and on our Special Interium team in 2013. Nina has been featured in Paper Crafts many times.  Cath chose Nina as the Moxie Fabber of the Week in July 2011.  Nina says thanks with a fabby Mixed Media card.


Clare Buswell was on SRM's 2012 Design Team and again on our Special Interium team in 2013.  She was a top 5 finalist in Gallery Idol 2011.  She has been published many times in Paper Crafts magazine and was a Moxie Fabber of the Week in June of 2011. Clare says Thank You Cath with a beautiful stamped and stickered card. 


Virginia Lu is a BIG fan of Cath's Moxie Fab World entering almost every Tuesday Trigger Challenge.  Virginia was on SRM's 2011 and again on our Special Interium team in 2013.  Her love of stamps and stickers knows no boundaries.  Virginia was chosen as Moxie Fabber of the Week in June 2012 and she was a top 5 finalist in Gallery Idol in 2013.  Virginia says thank you to Cath using one of SRM's darling little clear purses, some lovely labels, twine & bling.  I'm pretty sure that Cath would think that this project is Moxie Fab!


Tenia Nelson, a member of SRM's 2012 Design Team, loves everything paper and she's a big fan of Cath Edvalson.  Tenia was chosen Moxie Fabber of the week in June 2011 and she's been published many, many times in Paper Crafts Magazine.  She is such a talent!  Tenia says thank you to Cath in her fabby simple yet sensational style.  The clear sticker used for the sentiment is perfect!


Our last card thanking Cath is from Lesley Crogan.  Lesley is on the current SRM Design Team and was a top 5 finalist for this year's Gallery Idol.  Her clean and simple yet elegant style is totally FAB!  


My favorite memory of Cath is when she came to the SRM booth early one day at CHA in January of last year.  She was on a mission to thank me for the great job that I do with the SRM Blog and SRM Facebook.  I was really touched by how genuine and sincere she was.  Cath is such a kind, loving and generous person who has enriched all of our lives.  I often dropped by the Moxie Fab World Blog for a little pick me up during a busy day.  It always made me happy.  I will miss that.  And I will miss Cath.

Thank you Cath from the bottom of our hearts.  You are so special.  You have touched us all.

Remember to leave a comment for a chance to WIN one of 5 prize packets that are being given away!  And thank you to all the SRM Design Team members that we have featured here today.  They are totally FAB!


Thanks for stopping by.  Next stop on the blog hop is Noelle McAdams.
