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.

C is for Clean and Simple

Don't you just love these little birds???? I think they've been out at my feeders for a little too long -- they need to go on a diet!
I made this card for the ABC Christmas Challenge -- C is for Clean & Simple (with a sketch).
Their sketch is for a square card but I prefer this shape so it turned out looking a little different from their sketch shown here at the right. I've made a couple of cards for the February sketch challenge at Annabelle Stamps and my card today looks like it could fit right in!!
The decorated papers that I've used all come from a Papermania paper pack called Classic Christmas. I won this pack plus some other goodies from the blog hop at the end of the year at ABC Christmas Challenge. Thanks you ladies, for this gorgeous paper to work with. My card and circle base is Sahara Sand by Stampin' Up.

Betty. I love this card! The colors are spectacular and the bird border is so cute. We're seeing a lot birds at our feeders lately since we have so much snow around. They're happy to find something to eat. Take care! Stay warm.
