Help for Katie

Katie Emmerson Renz, a fellow crafter, has very recently had the devastating diagnosis of stage 4 gastric cancer. She is currently undergoing chemotherapy, her only treatment option. 
Katie is married to Kevin and they have 3 beautiful boys. You can read Katie's story - in her own words - HERE on her blog.

A group of very talented artists have come together to fundraise for Katie and her family. They have put together a package full of lots of digital images that you can purchase for a fraction of their worth. Details and images of these digis can be found on Jak Heath's Blog.

Please, dig deep and do what you can to help. Spread the word about this fundraising through your blogs, forums, Facebook, Twitter.. anywhere that will allow it. 

I have made a very clean and simple card using one of the images and some sentiments from this package. 



and here are some photographs of the lovely Katie and her family.


The full list of artists and images are over on JAK'S Blog, along with details on how to purchase the images - AND there will be prizes!!

Cute Card Thursday - use some old stash
Delightful Challenges - buttons
