*PLEASE READ ALL THE WAY TO THE BOTTOM – THERE’S BLOG CANDY TO BE WON!!
Oh my goodness!! This has been such an amazing year for me in terms of my creative life. I had my first card picked up for Paper Crafts Magazine, I made my first magazine cover (Card Ideas for Paper Crafters), and I was one of the 15 Stamping Royalty winners – all of these things were mind blowing experiences, and events that I’ll never, ever forget.
If you’re a regular visitor here, you also know that I am a GINORMOUS fan of the Moxie Fab World blog and play along with Cath’s challenges on a regular basis. I also follow the blog every single day because Cath has her finger on the pulse of all things trendy . . . when Cath speaks trends, paper crafters listen!! Right?! Needless to say, I was absolutely floored when I received an email from Cath Edvalson several weeks ago, asking if she could feature me as the Moxie Fabber of the Week. And, of course, my answer was, “Ummmmm . . . DUH!!” Well, I don’t think those were the exact words that I used, but something to that effect – you get the picture, right?! Cath picks someone every Monday to feature, and so far each and every person that she’s chosen has been an absolute gem. I feel honored and humbled to be included among them, and am so flattered that Cath thinks I am moxie fab enough to name me the Moxie Fabber of the Week this week. Are you kidding me?!!
So, if you’re here because of the Moxie Fab World blog – welcome!! If you’re a regular visitor – are you not shocked right along with me?! I mean, come on!! I’m just a little ole’ card maker who loves to stamp. Thank you, Cath, from the bottom of my heart. I know I’ve told you this before, but you’ve been instrumental in influencing the stamper/card maker that I’ve become. I adore your challenges, I so admire your writing skills, and I am in awe of your ability to educate us on the trends and minute by minute goings on in the paper crafting world. You’ve inspired me to think outside my proverbial box and gave me the courage to step out there and try new things. I cannot thank you enough, and am absolutely thrilled to bits that you’ve chosen me this week.
For those that came for some card inspiration, I have two Paper Smooches samples that I haven’t shared with you yet. The first one features the new September release called Perpetual Bliss. I combined stamps from Perpetual Bliss and Alphadots to create the sentiment. Love that about Paper Smooches, don’t you?!
The second sample features images from Sunny Side Up. Dee-LISH, right?!
BLOG CANDY: So, when Kim Hughes (the genius behind Paper Smooches and my sweet, sweet friend) was here visiting me a couple of weeks ago, she left behind two “extra” stamp sets and told me that I could give them away to two of my readers. How sweet is that?!! So I will choose two winners from the comments left here on today’s post. (I’ll announce the two winners on Wednesday, September 21st here on my blog). You can get extra chances to win if:
- You pop on over to the Moxie Fab World blog and leave some love for Cath. After all, the love should be a two way street, right?!
- You drop by the Paper Smooches blog and/or Facebook page and leave some love for my Kim. She really is a doll, and I know you’ll love her and Paper Smooches as much as I do.
If you’ve made it to the end, you’re a saint!! Thanks so much for stopping by today, and for sharing this wonderful experience with me. I hope your day is as Moxie Fab as mine has been!!
