PLEASE ... Help Spread LOVE & HOPE

There is a new BLOG HOP today and it is for such a worthy cause!!! Although I couldn't get in on the HOP ... I certainly want to send this young lady WORDS OF HOPE!!! and I hope you will too!! You can read all about Jaimie's story at the Blog Hop's Starting point ... Katharina Frei's Blog.

Just to give you a snippet so you know how important this is!! ...... 11 year old Jaimie Cates was the victim of a horrible crime which left her mother dead and her (Jaimie) left for dead in the driveway. The FINAL STOP will be at a special blog set up for this event ... called Stamp Something for Jaimie. There you will find a list of all those involved in the hop as well as generous sponsors. Also in the sidebar, there are various articles in reference to Jaimie's Story that you might find of interest! I personally want to thank all those involved for trying to bring a little sunshine and a ray of hope into this young ladies life.

The card above is what I created to send along to Little Miss Jaimie! God be with her & her dad throughout this difficult time!!! For your convience, here is the address once again, where you can send hope & love to Jaimie:

Jaimie Cates, c/o Mont Vernon Fire Station,
Main Street, Mont Vernon, NH 03057

Thanks in advance for taking part in this event ... please say a prayer for Jaimie!!

Stamps: Inky Impressions (Flower Lili), American Arts (sentiment)
Papers: Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, Whisper White, SU dp
