Katie's Celebrate Life Blog Hop

Welcome to our "Celebrate Life Blog Hop", our tribute to our Design Team Coordinator here at Clear Dollar Stamps, Katie Renz. Katie was the founder and creator of the Tuesday Tutorials HERE on the CDS blog. We decided to not only hold this blog hop on a Tuesday to honor her legacy, but also to CASE one of her cards. You should have arrived here from Lovely Lisa's blog. If not, please start back at the beginning on the CDS blog.

Here is Katie's card that I am Copying and Sharing with Everyone. I loved the combining of the two nestie shapes she did on it. I also liked the embossing.

Well here is my card, minus the embossing! I was so focused on the layers of papers and nestie shapes that I forgot to emboss it!! Oh bother! And I know Katie with her quick wit and funny sense of humor is up in heaven snickering!! Anyway, the image is from the Snow Friends stamp set.


Continue on your way by hopping next to Terrific Trudy's blog. Thank you for joining us today.

Missed embossing or not, your card is fabulous. You are right Katie probably is looking down smiling and maybe snickering.

You chose a great card as hers is very inspiring. I love the colors you chose and how you blocked your background paper so perfectly. I didn't know Katie, but after this hop and reading some of her blog she sounds like a beautiful person.
