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.

Hello to all! I had fun making this card -- it made me feel a bit like dancing! I followed the guidelines from three challenges as I created this card. Here they are ~~
Roses Challenge -- our hostess is Olga Jewell and she wanted to see an animal on our card. My reindeer is part of a new set that I purchased from Layers of Love called Reindeer Waltz. (Remember, I said this card made me feel a bit like dancing??!)
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge -- is a challenge to use Black, Lilac and Lime Green. I did not have any lime card stock so I got as close as I could. I think these colors make a super combo!
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Sketch Challenge -- sketch can be found below.

Thanks for coming by! See 'ya later!
