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.

Promise of Spring

I have a card today that hopefully will help my snowbound friends know that spring will indeed come! I will be entering it in two challenges -- the sketch challenge at The House That Stamps Built and at Fab N Funky to use a digi image.


I changed up the sketch slightly because my digi image ended up being more rectangular than square and I liked this placement better. Colored my digi with colored pencils and baby oil. Paper is from a Colorbok pad and I added some light green and pink pearls.
Edited to add: Digi is from Just Inklined.

Hope you enjoyed a touch of spring!

Betty,
This is beautiful! I love that peony at least that is what I think it is???? I have them planted up by my mail box so I can see them from my stamping window. White and yellow ones.
