Cards for Cath Sparkle and Shine

Good afternoon. I have been busy cutting out cards today for my Christmas card workshop on Sunday. The kids are home from school because it is Teacher In-Service. They spent the morning looking at their scrapbooks. It makes me so proud that I'm a paper crafter and have been able to preserve memories for them.

I wanted to share the card that I worked on today. I would like to post this to the Moxie Fab World website. As some of you have probably already heard, Miss Cath is leaving Moxie Fab World. She has taught me so much over the past few years and has been so generous and thoughtful, stopping by once in a while to leave a comment, and also to give out prizes each week. Twice, I have been the recipient of her generosity, but even more so, when I lost a baby in 2011, Cath left me a personal message of condolence on my Facebook page. It was so touching, and I've never forgotten it.

So today's card honors Miss Cath. She has brought so many of us joy. I wish you much luck in your future endeavors. *Hugs*
I can't take complete credit for the design of this card. You can check out my inspiration for this card here. If you would like to participate in giving your regards to Cath, too, you may want to check out this link "Cards For Cath".

Paper: Sparkle and Shine, Olive CS, Cranberry CS, White Daisy CS (CTMH)
Tools: Snowflake Dies (MFT), Damask Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug), Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (CTMH)
Other: Red Sequins (Jo-Ann's), Glue Dots (CTMH)

Thanks for stopping by. Have a terrific day!
