A card for Katie

I was on Splitcoast Stampers a couple of weeks ago and came across the story of Katie.  I don't know Katie but her story tugged at my heart.  Katie is a fellow stamper who was stricken with cancer at the young age of 39.  I went to Katie's blog, My Paper Haven, where she does a remarkable job of putting her thoughts and feelings down.  After reading some of her entries, I knew I wanted to make a card for her.  So Katie, this one is for you!


Stamps:  Floral Wreath by Gina K.
Paper:  Cameo Coral, Close to Coca, White
Ink:  Black Cameo Coral
Accessories:  photo corner punch, pearls, ribbon, sponge dauber, Nestabilities circle dies, CB Victoria embossing folder, Prisma markers
All products are SU unless otherwise noted.

If you find yourself with a card looking for a home, think about sending it to Katie.  Rather than post her address on my blog, leave me a message and I will send it to you.

There is another talented stamper out there, Vicki at All I Do Is Stamp, that has a wonderful tutorial on how to make and add a watermark to your cards.  Click on her blog name and it will take you right there.  A huge thanks to Vicki for doing that!

I hope you have a great week!

Pam~
