Stamp something for Jaimie


I read this tragic story yesterday on Lydia's blog
"On October 4th, four 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."
Denise and Erin - the girls behind the Stamp Something challenges, have organised a very special blog hop in hope that we can all give a little bit of hope and love to a very special and brave little girl.Visit the website here for more information and to take part in the blog hop. If you would like to send Jaimie a card then her details are
Jaimie Cates c/o Month Vernon Fire Station Main Street Mont Vernon, NH 03057

I have copied the sketch from the Spoonful of Sugar challenge so can enter my card there as well. Jaimie favourite colours are pink & black so I have used flocked papers from Papermania. The image is a Gorjuss Girl and she has been coloured with Derwent Inktense and matted on a scalloped circle. I added dots with my white Inksentials pen. The sentiment is Penny Black.Flower and gem from stash. I hope Jaimie likes it
thanks for looking
