A Card for Katie

I made this card for Katie.  Katie is a sweet wife, mother, designer, and friend.  If you don't know her, go check her out and read about her journey.  She was just recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Gastric Cancer.  I 'met' Katie through blogland and the Clear Dollar Stamps Design Team about a year and a half ago.  She has been the CDS Design Team Leader for a while now too.  Her posts and cards always make me smile and inspire me, and her emails and comments always make me laugh.  

Over at Lori's blog, Clearly iStamp, we've decided to do a card drive for Katie.  We are hoping that our creations can lift her spirits and give her a smile every time she receives one.  I decided to use this new stamp called Heart Hugs, because it was just too perfect not to use.  Getting a handmade card is like getting a heart hug, especially when it was specifically made.
And of course, teddy bears make me think of comfort.
 Stamps:  Heart Hugs (CDS)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper:  Soft Mint (CDS), Sweet Cheeks (CDS), Cottonball White (CDS)
Accessories:  Copics, Tags Trio Nestabilities, Heart Die, Swiss Dots embossing folder, Turquoise Gem ribbon (CDS), turquoise button (SU), sewing machine, sponge
