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.

Bear-ing Flowers

I have another post tonight -- well, I guess it's actually tomorrow already, but wanted to get this posted before heading off to bed. The little cutie bear is a freebie that I had snagged from Pollycraft Designs and am using it in a challenge to "flash your freebies!". Hope that intrigues you and gets you to go over and check out their site.
The sketch is from Midnight Madness. I posted a card with the CAS version of this challenge earlier. I enjoy the challenges there because you can choose a clean and simple sketch or a fancy sketch, or even "somewhere in between"! I have chosen to use the "somewhere in between" this time. I really like the eight panels under the focal imagbe -- makes for an interesting design. This will be another card for Operation Write Home!

I'm off to bed now!
