Hello StampTV Friends,
I am so sorry to start the day off with some sad news but I know many of you would want to know.
Our sister in stamping, Karen Knegten lost her wonderful husband CJ yesterday. He passed away at home and I can only imagine how difficult this is for Karen.
Many of you know Karen because she was one of the VERY first members of StampTV when we opened our cyber doors back in 2009. And many of you also know that Karen suffered a brain aneurysm that nearly took her from us awhile back.
Through tons of therapy and the love and help of her husband, she is once again able to stamp and is here all the time inspiring us with her beautiful cards.
CJ did so much for Karen. He took her to all of her medical appointments, brought here here to our retail store in Greendale many times, and loved her like no other. He was her rock. She was his rock. She is so sad to have lost the love of her life.
If any of you would like to send a card to Karen, you can send them here to our store. Please address them like this:

I will make sure she gets every single one of them. Karen is such a good friend to me and I adore her. I pray that she finds peace and comfort in the outpouring of love from family, friends and the community here at StampTV.
We love you Karen!
Oh no! I am so very sorry to hear that. A card will be in the mail.
I am so sorry to hear this. I can only imagine how she is feeling. I know that I depend on my husband for so many things. This loss for her is devastating and I know that we all will do everything that we can do. Thanks Gina for letting us all know. She's in our thoughts and prayers.
