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!
Such sad news for Karen. Thank you, Gina, for organizing a card drive from Karen's StampTV family.
I am so sad for my friend. Thanks for showing all the support I know karen will appreciate it!
I am so sad to hear this news. I will be keeping Karen in my prayers. Even though I am on the other side of the world, I know that she is such a lovely person and much loved by many. Thank you, Gina for letting us know.
I've put a card into the mail and really feel for her. It is hard to lose anyone, but losing a partner has to be one of the worst losses to experience. She is a nice lady and so encouraging to others so I hope that knowing we care provides some comfort to her.
Thinking of Karen and sending Hugs and Prayers up for her and the families! <3
