Swimming for Katie

Hi Everyone, today I am participating in a special blog hop for Katie Renz.   
From October 10-12 some of
the best stampers are joining together to support and encourage our
friend and fellow stamper, 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 I used in my project,
designed by Becky Oehlers, is available as a clear stamp, as well as a
digis or a dig 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 both also
donated digis that are for sale.  Direct donations are also being
accepted.  Information central is HERE
This is a permanent page that will stay active at i {heart} papers with
current information and the full 3 day blog hop listing, as well as the
donation button. 
I hope you will join me in supporting
Katie through a purchase or donation.  Below is a list of
everyone who has projects posted today.  I hope you will be inspired by
them and moved to purchase or donate.  Also, if you would like to send Katie a
card, her mailing address is:
