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.

Pretty Little Princess

I made this card for the following challenges:
MyGrafico Challenge (use some type of pattern -- I used dots)
StampTV Color Challenge (orange, pink, green & neutrals)
Speedy's Friends (use buttons and bows)
Frosted Designs (use buttons) Oops; too late to enter challenge
Tuesday Trigger (I used colors from the inspiration picture)

The digital image is by Primsy Doodles and is available as a freebie at MyGrafico Digital Stamps; the sentiment is from Stampin' Up's set "So Many Sayings". I did some paper piecing on this card and want to thank my sweet daughter Amanda for helping me with some of the intricate cutting (if you didn't hear, I broke the ring finger on my right hand while attemping to swing on the playground with my grandkids!)
Come back again!
