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.

Sunflower Wishes

At stampTV today Theresa Momber has issued a challenge to CASE design team member, Cathy Tidwell. I decided to case her card called heartlovelyday3. We are to change at least two things on our card. I used a different corner and border punch, changed the image, used ribbon instead of twine and a flower instead of a button. My image was too large to add inside the card so I went with the border punch to add interest inside.
I would also like to enter this card in the challenge at Annabelle Stamps, Say It With Distressing. I have distressed the edges of the flower image and the mats surrounding it.
Hope you can join me in one or both of these challenges!
