CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS BLOG HOP -- HELP FOR OUR KATIE

Welcome to Clear Dollar Stamps Monthly Blog Hop
This on is honor or OUR KATIE....KATIE RENZ
You should have just come from the Creative Christi's Blog. If not then you are going to want to start at the beginning at the Clear Dollar Stamps Blog HERE.
After my blog hop on over to Lovely Linda's Blog.
Katie is the face of our Tutorial Tuesdays.

She spent Christmas in the hospital after being diagnosed with a rare stomach cancer which is inoperable.


She's undergoing chemo treatments.

HELPING OUR KATIE
We love our Katie and want to help her and her family with the costs of her cancer treatments.
Others have contributed to helping Katie through jakheath.com
And now Clear Dollar Stamps has put together some more digis with others to continue to help Katie along her journey. The cost of this collection of digis (these are just the ones Clear Dollar Stamps has donated) is $15 and all of it goes to Katie's cancer fight.



She said goodbye to her hair and still looks beautiful.

PRIZES

We have some wonderful sponsors that have donated images and prizes for this cause. When you purchase either of the digi benefit bundles between Feb 20th - April 20th you will automatically enrolled in a drawing for some great prizes.

And she has a sense of humor. Hee.
She has been sharing her journey with us on her blog HERE.
