Sooooo glad you dropped by!
"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 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:
c/o Mont Vernon Fire Station
Mont Vernon, NH 03057
I am very short on time right now but absolutely could not say no to helping this sweet little girl. I know that most of you are busy too but hope you will take a short little piece of your time to send some love that will uplift and warm the heart of this little girl for a life time.

Here is the card that I made for Jamie. I hope she likes it!
I am the November guest designer for the Paper Temptress so I broke out with some of the gorgeous papers Pat gave me. The photos just don't do them justice but if you click on the pictures to enlarge, you can get a better look!
BTW...this adorable image is from Clear Dollar Stamp!
I also got to use my very first Copic markers. I thinks I likes! LOL!
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Charisma Cards- No Backing Papers
I did not use any DP just very very pretty cardstock!
Delightful Sketches - sketch
I took some artistic liberties with the sketch but I hope they don't mind!
Daring Card Makers - Getting Punchy With It
"Any theme but it needs to use your latest craft punch purchase. If you haven't bought any punches for a while or don't own any at all your latest craft purchase will be quite acceptable."
I love punches too but have not bought a new one in awhile so I am using my latest "craft purchase" as stated and they are my brand new Copic markers. Woo hoo!
Saturday Spotlight - "In So Many Words" - Use words on your creation
I did..."You Rock"! ;)
Papertake Weekly - Spots and/or Stripes
I used that beautiful tone on tone laser striped cardstock

The guitar sparkles and shines, so does the ribbon, pappers, and the metalic stars.
