Swimming For Katie...A Very Special Blog Hop




This is a very Special Blog Hop and I hope you can help.

There are lots of us joining together to..."support and encourage fellow crafter Katie Renz, who is currently battling inoperable gastric cancer. If you're not familiar with her, Katie’s cancer story started just before Christmas last year. This young, beautiful, healthy, vibrant mother of 3 with her infectious smile was suddenly diagnosed with an inoperable cancer, virtually overnight. A few tummy aches and then stage 4 gastric cancer. Her first post about it is here. The idea of “Swimming for Katie” came from her recent post here."

This exclusive stamp used in my sample, has been designed by Becky Oehlers and is available as a clear stamp, as well as a digi or a digi and SVG cut file. 100% of the profits go to Katie's fund to help her and her young family. Her husband Kevin and her three young children need our help and support.
In addition to the Keep Swimming Octopus, Marianne Walker and True =D Doodle Designs have also donated digi stamps & papers that are for sale and are all available here.

Direct donations are also being accepted HERE.


So here is my card, using a selection of blue alcohol inks and silver for the background, coloured with ProMarkers with blue gem embellishments.

 The following is a list of everyone who has projects posted today. I hope you will be inspired by them and moved to purchase or donate.
Thank you everyone xx
