Card Drive for a Wonderful Teacher

*EDITED TO ADD: If you'd like to read my post updates on Cathy, please click HERE.

Two days ago we learned that my daughter's Kindergarten teacher, Cathy Downing was in a bad car crash recently. By the looks of the car, it's a miracle she came out of it alive, but she did, thank God! Angels were definately with her that day and shows that God must not be done with her yet! *Ü*

I found this picture of her with Fireman Bob from when she taught my daughter's class a few years ago. "Miss Cathy" is such an awesome teacher, and just a wonderful, loving and happy person!!

I would love to hold a Card Drive for her--to help cheer her up when she gets a little further along in recovery. I know that there are so many caring stampers out there who's beautifully hand-made card can bless someone's life in such a positive way and so I'm giving you that opportunity!

If you'd like to send Cathy a card, please email me, Kristine, to get my address. I will leave it open for the next few weeks. I will be pasing them on to Miss Cathy. Thank You so much!!

Here is a picture of her car after they got her out.
This was on the front page of our newspaper yesterday.

Here's one more picture I found when my daughter's class went on a field trip.

Sending lots of love and Get well Wishes!

You are so sweet. She will greatly appreciate what you're doing for her! After seeing that car, it's obvious that God's plan for her life is still in full force! That's amazing! I have your address, so I'll get something in the mail for her this week-end!
