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.

Bright and Sunny

Hello everyone! It's a beautiful day in my neighborhood -- the sun is shining, the roses are blooming and the birds are singing!  Tami Mayberry at stampTV  has challenged everyone to use the inspiration photo above to design their card. Here is mine:

My patterned paper is from K&Company and I used two Martha Stewart punches, Half Daisy and Daisy Corner for the flower accents. The elements that I used from the inspiration photo are the colors and the flowers. I will be donating this card to Operation Write Home.
