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 .
A Magnolia card
