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.

Mistakes or Opportunities?


My card for today's post came from the sketch challenge at Card Positioning Systems. I've had this cute little ladybug(?) made up for some time, just waiting for the perfect card. Well, I made the card but it wasn't quite perfect. I didn't get the image positioned in the center so I had to add a bow! Isn't it true that mistakes are opportunities for embellishment!!

What a cool card. We all cheat when we make cards. Errors have made some of the best cards.
