Spread the Love for Jaimie



My Card for Jaimie



This post will stay at the top of my blog until the 9th of November when the Blog Hop/Card Drive will close,


For newer posts look below this one please, thank you everyone for taking part...I will put everyones name in a hat and have Tommy draw it on Tuesday morning.

One of the great things about Cardmaking and Blogland is that we can make a difference, so please read on.....
Today 2nd November and until next Monday  9th November there is a blog hop and Card Drive, set up by Denise Lynn and Erin at Stamp Something for Jaimie Spread the Love. (pop over and get the whole story, it is quite sickening, but unfortunately life can be so very bad at times) there is a link on my side bar, there are prizes to be won, but that is not the point off this blog hop please read below, and take part, send Jaimie a card in support of the awful ordeal that she went through, it just makes me go cold thinking off it,

On October 4th, 4 teenagers armed with knives broke into a home in a small town in New Hampshire. Alone and sleeping inside were a mother and her 11 year old daughter. These 4 boys broke into this home with the intent to rob and kill anyone inside. They stabbed the mom, Kimberly Cates, to death and left her daughter, Jaimie, for dead in their driveway.  It was a completely random act, their home was chosen only due to its secluded surroundings."
Our hope is that everyone hopping around today will stop for a moment and think about Jaimie and her father and what life must be like for them now. One moment in time has changed their lives forever. We are asking that everyone reading this message please take a moment to make a card and send it off to Jaimie. You can make something very simple or much more involved, but please share some words of love and comfort

To take part start at Katharina Frei's blog, and follow the links if you are on the right track you should have come from Cammie King  to me, if not go back to Katharina's blog.....come on girls LET'S MAKE A DIFFERENCE to a young girl and her Dad, who have had an ordeal that we cannot even imagine..... I will be adding my card later on, I will be offering some surprise Candy to one lucky person who leaves their name at the bottom of this post.  I don't have a Mr Linky, but I do have a "HAT" good Luck,  as it took me 6 hours to figure out how to schedule my post, from here you should go to Wags n' Whiskers challenge Hugs Avril xxxx

The address for sending your card is on my sidebar.

a very cute card, Avril!
And you're so right, we CAN make a difference. This card raising is such a wonderful way to do that! This, along with a few other enterprises by bloggers, inspired me so much I posted about it on my blog. Come see!
I have yet to make my card. But have it somewhat planned in my mind. I am encouraging my friends to send cards as well.

Hi Avril, thats great news we still have spaces left and its £20 per person, I guess if your daughter lives in Dundee you wont need accommodation however if you do i have just asked the ladies to book it direct, e-mail me at kirstysmith2@hotmail.co.uk and i will send you the full details xx
