Help Us Help Our Katie

And we're doing it blog hop style!!! As many of you know, our very own DT Leader at Clear Dollar Stamps, Katie Renz, has been diagnosed with Stage 4 stomach cancer. You can follow her story on her blog, My Paper Haven. Katie is journaling her journey and sharing it with us all. A very courageous and generous giving of herself to all of us who can find inspiration through her strength. She will make you laugh and make you cry.

A new blog has been set up, called Help for Katie, to help raise money for Katie and her lovely family. Many of you remember AND donated to the fund raiser held by Jak Heath last month. This is a new fund raiser with a new round of beautiful digital images for your donation of $15, and the chance of winning some wonderful prizes also for donating. Check it all out HERE at the new Help for Katie blog.
You should have arrived here from the uber talented Lisa's blog. If you have not started at the beginning of our hop, please do so at Lori's blog, because you really don't want to miss out on anything. I have two cards to show with digis donated by Clear Dollar Stamps. This first one uses a pre-colored image from the set Prairie Wagon. There is also digital paper included in this set!!!! I went with some scrap paper though that I had close by in my scrap bin! I'm always pulling paper out of that thing but it never seems to get any smaller!!!

Is this not adorable??!! I love this set called Patchpal Elephant. Again I used a pre-colored image, sentiment, and the digital papers!!! No stamping at all!!!!!!! GASP!! Just a little sewing!
If you want to see what else is in the package of digitals you'll receive for making your $15 donation, go to the new Help for Katie blog. BUT, before you do, finish up the hop!!! I need you to head on over to visit the totally terrific Tricia so you can see what she has come up with!! I know she will amaze you!!!
