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.

Sketchy Lace

The card I have to share with you today was made for Flourishes challenge to use Lace (but I didn't get it posted in time) and for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. My color scheme is Going Gray, Real Red, Black and White. Here is the sketch from Midnight Madness -- you can either bling it up, keep it simple, or do something "in between".
Maybe you can join us over at Mightnight Madness -- there's still time!

Betty what a gorgeous card. I really love the lace...wow wouldn't I love to see a Martha Stewart deep edge punch that you could punch something like that out with!!! lol I like your colors scheme....and the touch of red, really makes it pop. Great job with the sketch. Thank you for playing along with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.
