Spread the Love Blog Hop

*This post will remain at the top of my blog until the 9th at the end of the prize giveaway.  Also remember you can send Jaimie a card at anytime.*

Happy Monday!!!  I hope everyone had a great weekend and a wonderful and safe Halloween.  I will do another post about Halloween.  I want to make sure that this blog hop gets the notice it deserves.  Here is a snippet that explains most of 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 hope and love and let her know that people do care and want the best for her.


The address to send cards to Jaimie is on my sidebar with the button about the blog hop.  There has also been a special blog set up and Jaimie and her story.  Please go here and check it out.  I know they are doing some special giveaways with some great sponsors.

If you came here first please go to Katharina blog here.

The card I made for Jaimie is in conjunction with the Whimsy stamp challenge for this week.  The challenge is round and round.  Use as many circles as you can or want to.  I have also added a heart for Jaimie as requested by Denise.  Here is my card.


From here you will want to go check out Leslie's blog here.  Thank you so much for taking a moment to look here and hopefully you can continue the blog hop and join in on the festivities.  This is a sad thing that happened and cards are a small gesture but they really do mean a lot in uplifting spirits.

Thank you for stopping by!!!
