Celebrate Life! Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to Clear Dollar Stamps 
Celebrate Life Blog Hop! 

Did you arrive here from 
Jan's blog?
If yes, you are in the right place!
If you just happened to stop by - please visit
Lori's blog to view to hop from the start!

Today we are honoring the memory 
of our own Katie Renz.

Sadly, Katie passed away from
 gastric cancer this month.
She will be greatly missed by all of us!

To celebrate Katie's life - 
I have chosen one of her cards to CASE 
(Copy and selectively edit)

I love the clean and simple 
design of this card.

For my card I used an 
older CDS set called 

I have had this set for a long time, 
but never really knew what to do with it!
 I found this perfect paper and an idea was born!
I also used the die cut set from
 Clear Dollar Stamps

 I think Katie would be pleased to 
see what her lovely card inspired in my mind!
 I will send you off now to 
I'm sure she has something 
amazing to share with you!
Thanks for celebrating Katie's life with us!
See you soon!

I love Katie's card I even showed it to my Mom. I love the papers she used and the die and sentiment. She did a wonderful job!
Your card is really great for someone into music or a boy. Love the way you followed the design of Katie's card. You did a wonderful job on it. Thanks for sharing. Edwina Brown

Your card is fun and friendly and a wonderful tribute to her. What a great combination of paper and stamp. Katie's card is beautiful as well. She knew how to put patterns and color together that I would never consider. Great card.
