For Cath with Love - Blog Hop & Play Date Cafe #116

As many of you will know, Moxie Fab World's Cath Edvalson (Trends Editor of Paper Crafts) won't be able to attend CHA this week due to a nasty pain in one of her shoulders. So... to cheer her up and thank her for "bringing" all of us to CHA with her during these past years, I thought we could surprise her with a blog hop. 



Our hosts and masterminds behind the event are the wonderfully talented crafters  Lorena Canto and Virginia Lu.  If you would like to participate and send some love Cath's way you will find the details and link for the Blog Hop HERE.

My card is inspired from a card I created and then recreated for the January PaperTrey Ink Blog Hop.  I am also entering this card for the Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC116 this week.  Here is wishing you a speedy recovery Cath.




All Supplies are from PaperTrey Ink unless otherwise specified:

Cardstock: Simply Chartreuse, Enchanted Evening, White Plum Pudding
Designer Paper:  Plum Pudding Bitty Dot
Stamps:  Sending You, Flower Fusion #4
Dies:  Beautiful Blooms II, Heart Prints
Ink:  Spring Moss, Plum Pudding
other:  foam dots
