Swimming For Katie

Many things makes me feel grateful  to be part of the card making community. One of them is the thoughtfulness of many of the members. I am sure many of you have heard about Katie Renz and her battle with cancer. And many of the card makers band together to help raise fund and offer support for Katie.

Ashley Nguyen Newell is showing her support by running a challenge on her blog and I know I just had to join.

And here's my card using the Octopus from i {heart} papers. I didn't add any other sentiment as the banner that the octopus hold says it all. "Keep swimming", which a saying that I often try to remember myself.

Thank you, Ashley for doing this. And, Katie, I am keeping you and your family in my prayers. Have a blessed day everyone.
