Swimming for Katie Blog Hop


Hi there! Thanks for stopping by today. It's an important day as today I'm one of 125 stampers who are coming together over the next 3 days to support, encourage, and share a little aloha with fellow stamper and beautiful young mother and wife, Katie Renz. Battling terminal Stage 4 Gastric Cancer since last Christmas, in her most recent blog post Katie talked of shopping for cemetery plots and planning her own funeral. This blog hop is to raise funds to help Katie's young family as well as share some love with a talented young woman who's time here is limited. Katie's story begins HERE and the idea for "Swimming for Katie" came from a more recent post HERE.


The image used on my card, along with other images and cut files are available to purchase HERE. All of the proceeds go to Katie’s family. Donations are also accepted, the donation button can be found on each blog hop post, as it is here:
