Welcome to the Spread the Love Blog Hop

SpreadTheLoveSendACard

Happy Monday everybody and welcome to the Spread the Love Blog Hop. I have the honour to be the first one on your hop to help spred the love for 11 year old Jaimie Cates, who has been the victim of horrible crime. My dear friends Erin and Denise organised this hop to send Jaimie support during this hard time.

Here is some information about what happened:

"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:
Jaimie Cates
c/o Mont Vernon Fire Station
Main Street
Mont Vernon, NH 03057
United States

We have over 60 hoppers joining us and some amazing sponsors who have donated fabulous prizes for our Spread the Love Card Drive Challenge!

The Blog hop will end on Monday, November 9th at 10am ET (3 pm GMT). At that point we will draw random winners to receive the prizes offered by our generous sponsors.

Einen wunderbaren Montag wünsche ich euch und Willkommen zu dem Spread the Love Blog Hop. Ich habe die Ehre die erste in der Reihe der talentierten Stempler zu sein, die ihr auf eurem “Hop” noch besuchen werdet. Dieser Blog Hop wurde von meinen Freundinnen Erin und Denise organisiert um der 11-jährigen Jaimie, die Opfer einens fürchterlichen Verbrechens wurde, Liebe und Anteilnahme zu schicken.

Hier sind ein paar Informationen über Jaimie’s Schicksal:

“Am 4. Oktober sind 4 Jugendliche, bewaffnet mit Messern in ein Einfamilienhaus in New Hampshire eingebrochen. Darin schliefen eine Mutter und ihre 11-jährige Tochter. Die 4 jungen Männer sind mit der Absicht in das Haus eingebrochen alle Inwohner zu berauben und danach zu töten. Sie haben die Mutter Kimberley Cates erstochen und die Tochter Jaimie zum Sterben in der Auffahrt liegen gelassen. Bei diesem Verbrechen handelte es sich um völlige Willkür. Das Haus der Cates wurde nur wegen der Abgeschiedenheit ausgewählt.”

Unsere Hoffnung für den Blog Hop ist, dass jeder, der daran teil nimmt einen Augenblick an Jaimie und ihren Vater denkt und daran wie das Leben momentan für sie ist. Ein einziger Augenblick hat ihr Leben für immer verändert. Wir bitten jeden, der das hier liest sich einen Moment Zeit zu nehmen und eine Karte für Jaimie zu basteln und an sie zu schicken. Wir wollen ihr damit vermitteln, dass es nicht nur Böses auf der Welt gibt und das viele Menschen an sie denken und Anteil nehmen an ihrem schweren Schicksal.

Bitte sendet eure Karten an die folgende Adresse:
Jaimie Cates
c/o Mont Vernon Fire Station
Main Street
Mont Vernon, NH 03057
United States

Über 60 Hoppers werdet ihr im Laufe des Blog Hops besuchen und viele Stempelfirmen haben Preise gesponsert. Der hop dauert bis Montag 9. November 16:00, danach werden die Gewinner der Preise gezogen.

I used Willow with Gingerbread Heart for my card for Jaimie. The stamp was part of the Whiff of Joy / Elisabeth Bell Winter Stamp Kit and will be available as individual stamp this week. I used a lot of pink and heart to express my feelings for Jaimie. I used a Stampin’ Up background stamp with chocolate chip ink to stamp on the round coaster.

Ich habe Willow mit Lebkuchenherz für die Karte, die ich an Jaimie schicke, verwendet. Sie war Teil der Whiff of Joy / Elisabeth bell Winter Stempel Kits und wird diese Woche als Einzelstempel erhältlich sein. Ich habe viel Pink und Herzen verwendet um meine Gefühle für Jaimie auszudrücken. Den runden Papieruntersetzer habe ich mit brauner Tinte und einem Hintergrundstempel von Stampin’ up bestempelt.

Lieben Dank, dass ihr auf meinem Blog vorbei geschaut habt und euch die Zeit nehmt mir einen Kommentar zu hinterlassen. Ich weiss wie kostbar "Zeit" ist, deswegen weiss ich jede einzelne Nachricht sehr zu schätzen.

Ich bemühe mich sehr, euch einen Gegenbesuch abzustatten, auf eure Fragen (direkt hier in den Kommentaren) zu antworten und bin auch via Email gerne für euch da. Wie ihr ja alle wisst, spielt es im Leben nicht immer so wie man es plant. Und mit 2 Kindern, Haushalt und Beruf kommt schon manchmal etwas dazwischen.
Bitte habt Nachsicht mit mir :)
Liebe Grüsse
Katharina

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and for taking the time to leave me a comment. I know best how valuable "time" is, therefore I appreciate your comments immensely.

I try my best to visit your blogs, to answer your questions right here in the comment section or via email. But you all know how stressful life can be, with two children, household and work. Sometimes, life doesn't go as planned.
Please bear with me!
Hugs
Katharina
