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.

Copper Butterfly Lace


This card is my entry for the latest Moxie Fab Challenge to use lace as the focal point. I went out to buy some doilies and this is what I found. It's definitely not a doily, but I thought it had a nice lacy effect and best of all, it was on sale!! The card base is Stampin'Up's Always Artichoke and the background is from Pam Lefors Designs. I used bits of metallic cardstock for the frame around the focal image and for the sentiment (which comes from Papertrey Ink's Everyday Button Bits). A bit of copper colored ribbon and brad finish it off. Bye for now!
