Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

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:

Village Paper & Ink

ATTN: Karen Knegten

5602 Broad Street

Greendale, WI 53129

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!

This is so very sad news :( Sending my heartfelt condolences at such a very sad time, from across the miles. My prayers and thoughts are with Karen and her family at this time.  Thank you Gina for kindly letting us know.

I just placed a card in the mail.  Very sad.  I will be praying.  I have no words.  My husband takes me everywhere also, especially to doctor visits.  This hits too close to home.

Oh my goodness.  How sad a news to deliver.  Will be sending a card and many prayers of comfort and peace for her.  She is such an inspiring and caring soul.  Always a good word or positive reinforcement coming out of her.

My heart is breaking for Karen. I met her at the Christmas at the Villages event. She and CJ had a very special realtionship. Will keep her in my prayers and hope she finds comfort in her STV friends. Thanks Gina for letting us know.

We had lunch together the last day and she told me about how her husband brings her to her doctor appointments, as well as bringing her to the Village. My thoughts and prayers are with her.
