Swimming for Katie Renz--Special Fundraiser for a Special Crafter

Just Inklined is holding a special Blog Hop to continue the Fund Raising effort for Katie Renz.  Katie is a special crafting friend of many crafters and although I do not know her personally I know her through Just Inklined and took part in the first Fund Raiser when her original diagnosis was made almost a year ago.  I have followed her blog story, oh to have her love and strength. and it breaks my heart to feel so helpless.     You can read Katie's story on her blog here.

On with the Blog Hop and how we can help!!

If you arrived here from Alice's blog you are in the right spot, if not go back to the beginning which is Mina's blog , you won't want miss a single stop along this special Hop.  We are all using the same special image created for the Fundraiser by Becky Oehlers, which was inspired by Katie's blog post,  Keep Swimming.


This would have been fun if I had the SVG file already but I didn't so had to cut it out by hand. but thought it turned out cute.  The images available are available in different formats and there are a couple of different ones as well.  Our own Jak Heath has a wonderful Fish and bubble dp pack available  here:  The link is to the:  I Heart papers website where the Swimming for Katie fundraiser items are being sold.  


The Blog Hop Order is :
Mina
Alice
 Cathy--  That's Me
Debbie
Heidy
Jane
Jeni

Thank you so much for stopping by and the next stop along the hop is Debbie and I know she has a cute image created with the Swimming for Katie image to show you.

Keep Swimming Katie, Kevin and your wonderful boys,

Cathy
