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.

Opposites Attract

I've made this card to send to Operation Write Home. I can just see some soldier who is married to his/her "opposite" and just has to send them this card to say I love you! I have used ColorQ's challenge 31 for the color combo. There is a twist to their color challenge this week though -- you have to enlist a buddy to play along with you. Terri Early at ...Just What I Do... invited me to be her partner for this challenge and I glady accepted. The prize is a pack of Stampin' Up designer paper and if either one of your names are drawn, the other will receive the same prize! Doesn't that sound like fun?! Now, here's the beautiful card that Terri created.

Aren't these flowers just the best? The colors of her card are so bright and beautiful; and take a look at her bow -- I love it!
The deadline for this challenge is Sunday, May 9, noon CST. So, grab yourself a buddy and enter!

Edited Sunday, May 9 -- I realized that I did not mention that this card also qualifies for the challenge at MelJens Designs to make a card or project with sea creatures. Check out the link for their challenge!
