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.

Happy Birthday (2nd post today)


My card this evening is for four different challenges:
1. Card Patterns Sketch 76
2. Speedy's Friends 15 (make your own embellishments)
3. Cook Up a Card (3 flowers, 2 stamps, 1 happy birthday)
4. Tiffany Doodles August Challenge (use a flower)

My image is from MelJens Designs who is the sponsor at Card Patterns this week and is offering 4 free images of your choice to the winning entrant. I'd love to be able to add four more of these adorables images to my digi collection!
I took my cue from Geri Utterbeck and made my flower embellishment by punching four of the flowers and gluing them together. I stamped "your special day", punched it out with a small circle and glued to the center of the flower. Then coated with Crystal EFfects.
Hope your coming week will be a happy one!
Betty
