For Cath (sans CHA) with Love Blog Hop, CAS-ual Fridays #37, & CR84FN47


Hello, crafty peeps!  Are you ready for a mega-fun blog hop in honor of Miss Moxie Fab herself, Cath Edvalson?

The idea for this hop came from talented crafters Lorena Canto and Virginia Lu, and there are dozens of amazing designers participating!  Cath recently shared the news on the Moxie Fab World blog that she would be unable to attend CHA this year due to severe pain in her shoulder.  To wish her a speedy recovery and thank her for keeping us up-to-date on all things trendy, we're sending her well wishes with some creations just for her!





I was also inspired by the sketch this week at CAS-ual Fridays and the sweet colors at CR84FN.

One of my go-to sets lately has been PTI's Faux Ribbon.  I used it on this card to stamp rows of circles in Real Red, Regal Rose, and Pool Party.  I added a Pure Poppy felt flower with a button center and a Tiny Tag stamped with the sentiment "feel better".

The eyelet border is CASEd from my friend Karen Baker's design for CAS-ual Fridays this week--I knew it would be perfect with these circles.

The Aqua Mist panel is debossed with PTI's argyle impression plate, which I thought was a fun contrast to the circular elements.


All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless noted
Cardstock:  Aqua Mist, White
Stamps:  Faux Ribbon, Tiny Tags
Ink:  Real Red, Regal Rose, Pool Party (Stampin' Up!), Versamark (Tsukineko)
Tools:  Argyle impression plate, Tiny Tags die, Beautiful Blooms dies, Eyelet border die
Accessories:  Pure Poppy felt, Aqua Mist button, DMC floss, thread

To see the rest of the cards on the hop, all you need to do is stop by Lorena Canto's or Virginia Lu's blog for links to the participants.

We hope you're back in tip-top shape very soon, Cath!  Best wishes to you for a speedy recovery!
