Help for Katie

Some of you may know that our dear design team leader from Clear Dollar Stamps - Katie Renz - was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Gastric Cancer.  Today one of her blogging friends - Jak Heath - is offering a huge collection of digi sets donated by digi artists all across the blogosphere to help raise money for Katie and her family as they face the medical expenses that will accompany her treatment.   I do hope you'll drop by Jak's website and see, and perhaps even make a donation yourself, if you are able.  I know it would be such a blessing!!

My cards today are from two of the sets donated by Clear Dollar Stamps.  The first set is called "Sending Love".  Don't you just love this balloon and the clouds?  It's so easy to resize digi stamps, and I was able to put smaller clouds in the background and pop up some larger clouds for dimension.   I figure that this will be good for a non-traditional valentine for my husband or son.


The next set is called Sew Grateful.  It's chock full of sewing notions and sweet sentiments.  I combined a few of the images to make my focal grouping.  And, of course, I had to add some stitching to the card!! :-)

I do hope that you'll drop by Jak's website to see the other sets being offered as a "thank you" for your donation.  I know that my heart has been so heavy for Katie and her family as they face a new year of uncertainty.  Let's do all that we can to help!

Blessings!
