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.

Cork and Cookies


You guys need to go check out my new friend -- Nana Connie. She shared one of her grandmother's receipes on her blog today for Old Fashioned Blondies. They sure do sound scrumptious!
The card that I'm sharing today is based on the Card Patterns Sketch 102 which you can see below right.
It's also going to be my second entry in the new monthly challenge, Hot Spot, which is co-hosted by Studio 313 and Sue McMahon at McMahon Five Designs. Their challenge is to use a natural element, which (in my case) is the cork paper and the stamps from Annabelle Stamps, set titled All Things Grow. Even with the butterfly, I think it has a nice masculine look!
