Help for Katie

Ok, this post is very out of the norm for HDH.  Usually we are all about the gruesome and dark nuances of our imaginations and dreams, but today is a shot of reality.

Cancer seems to touch all of our lives in some way.  Maybe it's a family member, friend or co-worker.  A mother of your BFF, an aunt or a web-o-sphere buddy.  It's real, and it sucks.  No matter what kind it is.  Many of you may know all about Katie Renz's battle with cancer, however if you don't please go here: http://www.help4katie.blogspot.com/



Katie seems like an amazing woman, and I want to help... and you can help too!
All you have to do is make a $15 donation, and you get this lovely digital stamp collection:


This is the second edition set for Help for Katie.  Some fabulous contributors have come together to donate the monies from this set to help Katie and her family.

Betty Boo of Simply Betty Stamps and one of our very own SBS DT members, Cheri, are two of those contributors, and Betty asked if the SBS DT could showcase their work today... like she had to ask :)
Though Katie has stomach cancer, I thought I'd use this opportunity to create a card for the mother of a very dear friend of mine who has breast cancer.  The sentiment is totally fitting for my friend and her mom... I mean, not that they are bitches... well... ok... my friend IS a self-proclaimed bitch, so there ya' go :)

I colored-up Katie with Copic markers and used the cardstock and paper from The Angel Company's Lily Anna collection.  Super clean and simple card to keep the focus where it should be :)

Be sure to check out the rest of the SBS DT creations on the SBS Challenge blog, and don't forget to donate to the Cause at the Help for Katie blog!
