Spread the love blog hop!



Today I am taking part in a very special Blog Hop, I was very upset when I read of an event which touched the life of my blogging friend and Design Teammate Erin Bailey,

"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."

Erin has a close friend who lives near to and is friends with the family concerned and after receiving a grief filled email from her friend asking for help for the family, she knew she needed to help however she could.. so she and another couple of crafty friends decided to organise an international blog hop.

You should have arrived here at my blog from Libby's, if not you should go to the start of the hop at Katherina's blog.


This is my card for Jamie and we would love you to take part in the blog hop and also make a card for her thereby helping us to spread some love and awareness and hopefully lots and lots and lots of cards and wishes of hope for Jaimie.

I will enter everyone who leaves me a comment on this post into a draw for one of my Christmas Polymer stamps. The next stop on the blog hop is Sammy Jo's blog, thanks so much for dropping by today.

Wow! A beautiful card. I love the colours but what an horrific act. How cruel life can be and how cruel people can be. I will pray for this young child.
