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.

My Senior Moment!

Okay, here's the explanation -- I couldn't remember what the challenge was that Kym had extended to the Roses for the month of May. I knew she had sent a link to a tutorial along with it, so I started going through past emails. Found the link for a twisted easel card and got busy making one -- unfortunately, that wasn't the challenge link!!!! We were supposed to make a get well tissue box card ...... oh well, hope you'll enjoy my twisted easel card, Kym!
I have some good news to share with you -- in July I will be guest designer at AnnaBelle Stamps. I have been participating in their challenges for a while and love their stamps. I think my favorite is All Things Grow (a botanical set with reeds and grasses and misc. sentiments) but they just showcased a new daisy set this month that is super-duper! Check out the link and if you haven't had a chance to join in the challenges there, please join us!

Before I go, just wanted to share a picture of a lovely flower outside my living room window -- isn't it gorgeous? And the hummingbirds like these flowers too, which is a good thing, because I enjoy watching them too!
