in Morocco


I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend!  We have been celebrating and having a good time, but I have to admit that I am little tired this afternoon.  A good tired, though, so I don’t mind!


I made this card for Dawn’s color challenge.  I already stuck it in the mail, so I hope the recipient (who must remain unnamed for now because she reads my blog!) will like it!  I actually made a whole set but I forgot to check my photos before I sent them away and the other photos were blurry.  Oops!  Anyone else ever done that?


I wanted to alert you all to a lovely new Etsy shop run by Jessica at Recapturing Wonders. Jessica’s work is just beautiful and she is offering 100% of the profit to He{art} for Morocco.  And since we are talking about our little school project, I just wanted to remind you all that there are less than two weeks left to purchase from our shop.  There is still time to purchase from Digiments as well, who are also offering 100% of the profit to our cause!


I would like to thank you all again for your continual support.  Your orders have continued to come in and I am touched to the very depths of my soul by your kindness and generosity!  We will be going later this week to speak to the director of the school we have chosen and I will try to get more photos.

The week of November 9th some dear friends of ours from the States have very generously offered to join us here in Morocco to help us accomplish our school project.  I am completely blown away by their sacrifice and selfishly, I cannot wait to see them and work with them!  It is going to be an incredible week and I cannot wait to share it all with you!

Tina great card. I really like the bling you added, and yes I have taken my pictures, mailed them, and realized they were beyond photoshop repair! It stinks! However, I can imagine a set in my mind and they are fabulous!
