Spread the Love Blog Hop today!

Welcome to our stop on the Spread the Love blog hop!

This hop was coordinated by Denise and Erin of the Stamp Something Challenge blog for Jamie Cates, an 11 year old victim of a violent crime. It is our hope that by having this hop Jamie's mailbox will be filled with cards with wishes of love and hope from around the world. We along with several other companies are very proud to be sponsoring this hop. There are 60 hops filled with awesome cards and many prizes to give away!

If you have arrived here all by yourself and want to start from the beginning please start here at Katharina Frei's blog:

Here is the card I am sending to Jamie

I choose this theme and color because I know Jamie likes to skateboard, is not a "girly girl" but does like black and pink. I added a little bling for Arno's collar and the wheels on the skateboard (aurora borealis austrian crystals, I get mine from Outlines rubber stamps)

You can't see it so well in the picture but the front images are popped up and everything is colored with copics and accented with sakura glaze pens, my two favorite supplies for coloring!

I also made Jamie a coordinating envelope which I will be sending off inside a clear bag for protection.

Products and supplies list:
Stamps: Starving Artistamps, DoodleFactory collection: Urban stamp set

Markers: Copic caio markers:

Stampers Magic POP! Tape (for popping up images)

Thanks for hopping over to our blog!

If you would like to spread the love please consider sending Jamie a card, here’s a bit about Jamie:

Jamie is not really a girlie girl, but she does like hot pink and black. She likes outdoor activities such as biking, skateboarding, razor rip stick, snowboarding, and karate. As you may have read, she is a black belt in karate. Cards are to be mailed to:
Mont Vernon Fire Station
Main Street
Mont Vernon, NH 03057
Thank you in advance for anything you can do to help us in our efforts to spread the love.
