Speading the Love for Jaimie! xxx

Please scroll down for newer posts, this will be up top until 9th Nov!
Hello Crafters and thank you for visiting my blog today. If you have come here from your Dashboard and do not know anything about the Stamp Something for Jaimie Blog Hop, please click here and it will take you to the first person on the Hop!!

If you have come from Cindy's Blog - Stamps Paper and Ink, you are on the right Track!

As you know, its a special day today, even though there is a sad reason behind it, as today I hope, along with 60+ talented Stampers and Card Makers a like, will make a day in the life of 11 year old Jaimie Cates a more bearable one than the ones she has been leading since October 4th.

Why?, you might ask yourselves is Jaimie in need of cheering up and the love and attention of us all! I'll answer that question as her story must be heard!

On the night of the 4th October in the small state of New Hampshire, Jaimie and her Mum were brutally attacked by four teenagers. Jaimie was seriously injured and her mum sadly passed away as the injuries she sustained were fatal! (to read more, please visit here and here). If you would like to donate any money to help the Cates family, there is a website which is taking PayPal donations, if you click here, you will be taken to the site!

Jaimie Cates!
One Brave and Inspirational girl!


I have made a card which I hope Jaimie will receive real soon and its two of her favourite colours - Pink and Black! Great colour combo, I hope she likes it!

A little close up of this cute C.C. Designs Digi Image! I'm hoping that Jaimie likes her too!

Please show your support by visiting the Stamp Something for Jaimie Blog and see whats going on. There are over 60+ participants in the blog and I'm sure they would love to see you supporting the cause!

If you would like to send Jaimie a card yourself, please use this address here:

Any cards sent here will be forwarded onto Jaimie! I hope the many, many cards she receives puts a smile back on her face, and that she can at least peek at the future ahead of her as she its going to take a long time to recover and will forever morn her Mum!

Jaimie is a brave young lady and will need the love and support of her father, family and friends. I just hope that I can help out a little in getting her on the long road to recovery!

Its time for you to Hop to the next blog which is:


Thank you for reading and I hope the story has inspired you to create a card for Jaimie to send a little love her way. Please also take a minute to think of Jaimie's Father too, who lost his Wife too!

I've taken part in today's hop, as I lost my Brother in September this year and though it was a fatal car accident, NOTHING prepares you for the sudden loss of a loved one and the emotional strains and heartache you continue to feel afterwards. I just hope that Jaimie and her Father can look to the future as I am doing, and know that they will always have someone watching over them!

Thank you!
