Hope House Home for Boys

The cards that I sell here in Chapala and Ajijic, Mexico benefit the dental program for the boys at Hope House in the nearby village of Ixlahuacan. There are close to 30 boys at the home and many of them come to the home having received no dental treatment. If you live here at Lakeside and would like to order a quality, hand crafted card for a special occasion and help me contribute to this worthy cause, please e-mail me at bettyinchapala@yahoo.com Card price is 50 pesos; the entire sales price is donated to Hope House.

Thinking of You

Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps Sketch #18 inspired this card. Got to looking for a color combo and found an interesting one at Curtain Call #31. Colors are Almost Amethyst, Pretty in Pink, Night of Navy, Garden Green and Whisper White (Stampin' Up). I embossed the lower portion of the card base with Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots embossing folder; the patterned paper is from the Junebug Paper Pad (Basic Grey). Stamps are from Stampin' Up Thoughts and Prayers. This card will be going in my next batch of cards for Operation Write Home.

On another note, I've seen two very new fawns in our neighborhood and this afternoon three extremely pregnant does came to vist our backyard. I was able to get this picture. Momma doe's head is almost hidden by the foliage but look at that tummy!! It can't be much longer before she has a new little one! I just never get tired of seeing these creatures -- love 'em!

Love all of you too, for stopping by my little ole blog -- hope you'll come again!
