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.

Lily Pad Christmas

Hope everyone had a blessed Sunday. Before I headed off to church tthis morning I ran across a "new to me" challenge at Lily Pad. This was a sketch challenge that completely appealed to me. Here's the sketch and my take on the sketch:













My card base is glossy cardstock. The thin blocks of color are Night of Navy, Brocade Blue, and Bordering Blue. The snowflake and sentiment were done with a resist technique on glossy cardstock. I've enjoyed doing several things lately with the glossy cardstock/resist technique.

Wishing everyone a wonderful week,
Betty
