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.

Photo-Synthesis Challenge 1


Today, for the first time in a long time, I've not made a card. I do have one to share with you that I made a few days and hasn't been posted yet. It is for a new bi-weekly challenge called Photo-Synthesis. Here is one of the pictures that we are to take our inspiration from (there are several other photos taken from different angles posted on their blog). I took my inspiration not only from the colors (yellow, black, and white) but also from the black flourish on the tablecloth which shows up in the dragonfly and the embossed black background on my card.
Hope you enjoy my card and that you'll check out this new challenge and join in!
