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.

Birthday Memories, Joys, and Dreams




ColourQ is having their 100th challenge this week. To celebrate they are doing things a bit differently.

 Clean & Simple Stamping allowed ColourQ to "hijack" their fall-to layout #155 this week! We are to make our cards as per the sketch and use any color combination from the ColourQ's past challenges. I have chosen to use Challenge #20. The colors are Real Red, Brilliant Blue, Tempting Turquoise, Yoyo Yellow and White.
 Here is my card. The patterned flowery paper is from K& Company, Lemon Drop 12x12 Designer Paper Pad. I really like the bright colors in this pack. Card stock is from Stampin' Up. The blue has and white have been stamped with a stamp from Gina K. Designs, Nana's Needlework, designed by Nina Brackett. The setiment is also a Gina K. Designs stamp, from the set Inside and Out. A little flower and turquoise rhinestones complete my design.
Hope everyone is having a super day!
