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.

CASual Friday with Annabelle Stamps

Hello, friends! I took a day off from crafting yesterday to go to Guadalajara with stops at Costco and Home Depot. I just love looking at hooks and all sorts of other gadgets at Home Depot; I even spied a soaking tub that may one day come to live at my house (we just have showers in our bathrooms now). Fighting the traffic in Guad was not exactly fun and we were sure glad to get back to our quiet home in Chapala!

Woke up this morning and while checking emails and Facebook, saw that Annabelle Stamps is hosting the challenge at CASual Fridays this week. The challenge is to make a Clean and Simple Mini card no larger than 4" x 4". My card is 3" x 3". I have a Cuttlebug butterfly die with matching embossing folders and that is the focal image of my little bitty card, with the sentiment  from Gina K. Designs.

Hope you can join in on this challenge -- the winner gets a $20 shopping spree at Annabelle Stamps and will have a hard time making a purchase decision, I'm sure! I've got my fingers crossed!
