Help For katie Blog Hop!!!

Today is a blog hop dedicated to our very own Katie. Katie is known on the Clear Dollar Stamps blog for her fabulous Tuesday Tutorials, and she has inspired us all with her talent and creativity.
Why a blog hop for Katie?Katie has been diagnosed with Stage 4 stomach cancer. You can follow her story here on Katie's blog. 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. We love you Katie!
What are we doing to help Katie?We, Katie's crafty family, have set up a blog just for her and our efforts to help her. The blog is called Help 4 Katie. When something like this hits a family, you just want to do something. Many, many have already helped Katie through our initial fund raising efforts at Jak Heath's blog. We thank you so much for all of your contributions to Katie. As we all know, medical treatment for cancer can be quite costly and we want to make sure that she has the absolute best! As of today, we are moving our efforts to a dedicated blog just for Katie.
What we have been doing is taking Digital Image donations from many generous artists in our crafting community, packaging them into a grouping, and then asking for a donation to receive these digi images. The first set of images come with a donation of $20, and are now available on Katie's new blog.
We have put together a second package for Katie to help raise funds to fight this cancer! This set of digital images has been donated to Katie. You can get this entire set of digis for only $15! The entire $15 goes to Katie and her family to help her fight this cancer! Please check out Katie's New Blog For all the details on the prizes and donating!

If you just came from Sarah's blog you are in the right spot. If you are just joining us head on over to the Lori's blog to start your hop! I used my Patchpal Giraffe for my card today. I am still not into the Digi world yet mostly because of our darn printer. One day though... ha ha I made a darling baby card with a little charm that I got long ago. Kept this very simple and sweet. I just adore this little giraffe patchpal. The baby sentiment is from the Patchpal sentiments.

Your next stop in Help for Katie Blog Hop is over to Cassie's Blog! Have a wonderful day!
