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.

Roses September Challenge



This month it was my turn to name the challenge for the Roses. It may not have been much of a "challenge" for this talented group of gals, but I wanted to see RIBBON on everyone's cards.

The colors in my photo are actually turquoise even though they look blue. I love this sheer ribbon that I found at The Dollar Tree a year or so ago. Cardstock is PL Ocean Mist by Gina K. Designs and Very Vanilla and Tempting Turquoise by Stampin' Up.  DP is from a paper pack by Pressed Petals. The stamp is from one of my favorite stampTV kits, Elegant Flowers. (my other favorite is Spring Mix!)

My card is a CASE of a card by Deb Felts, "HBD Lee!"  The Friday Free For All at stampTV is a challenge to case a card of Deb Felts, Design Team Member. Take a look at her card, it is a stunner!

I'm off to church now. Will visit everyone's blogs later this afternoon! Have a blessed day!
