Jamie Cates November 2, 2009

Posted by Danielle in Crafts.

Thank you so much for stopping by for the Spread the Love Blog Hop for Jamie Cates.  Jamie is a special young lady who has been through a lot.  I hope that this blog hop will inspire you to create and send some love to Jamie, encouraging her to continue on, celebrating life, despite the tragedy that has occurred in her young life.

Snowboarding Card for Jamie

Here is a picture of the card I sent to Jamie. 

  • Snowboarding SVG which was released as Public Domain and can be found here.
  • Cardstock by Wasau, in white, yellow, and black.
  • Decorative paper from the Wildflowers pad.
  • Decorative Accents from my stash.

 You should have gotten to my blog from here,  Helen Dooley’s blog.  If you got to my page some other way, please go to the beginning of the Spread the Love Hop.  You can reach the first page, Katharina Frei’s blog, Stamping with a Whiff of Joy, by clicking here.

“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.”

If you would like to read more about Jamie’s story, you can click here or here.  Just remember to come back to complete the hop!  Jamie’s story is absolutely inspiring, and she is one spunky young lady, to have been able to keep her wits about her and contact authorities.

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 hope and love and let her know that people do care and want the best for her. Please send your card to the address below:

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