Swimming for Katie Renz Blog Hop


I'm very humbled to be involved in the Swimming for Katie Renz Blog Hop and Fundraiser! 

From October 10th thru October 12th, 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.



The exclusive Keep Swimmng Clear Octopus stamp used on my card, was designed by Becky Oehlers and is available as a clear stamp with 100% of the profits going to Katie's Fund to help her and her young family.  In addition to the Keep Swimming Octopus clear stamp, Marianne Walker and True Doodle Designs both have also donated digis that are for sale, you can view all items for sale at here.

Direct donations to Katie's Fund are also being accepted through the link below


I hope you will join me in supporting Katie through a purchase or donation. If you would like to send Katie a card, her mailing address is:

Katie Renz
PO Box 5913
Bellingham, WA 98227-5913

Thank You!
