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.

When You're Smiling .......

This card will be going into three challenges:
The Color Throwdown 100
Annabelle Stamps Sketch Challenge 25
MelJens 15 -- Circles Galore
The Color Throwdown is celebrating their 100th challenge with a blog hop featuring lucious prizes; if you haven't joined in yet, you have unti July 12. The colors are Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Real Red and Baja Breeze (I used Gina K. Designs Ocean Mist).
The sketch from Annabelle Stamps is shown here. You have until July 14 to enter this challenge and can even combine it with their color challenge (if you choose to accept it) to use chocolate and orange to make a Christmas themed card! That is quite a stretch for me but still may have to give it a go!
Be sure to check out MelJen's Designs. She has the most adorable images -- you'll surely fall in love with them!

Bye for now,
