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.

Thinking in Pink

My card today is pink and white, with just a touch of green.

 I made it with two challenges in mind. The sketch comes from WHAT IF? Wednesday Sketch Challenge S211 with Repeat Impressions Stamps. And Stampin' B's Challenge 129 is to use two or more Spellbinders Dies.

Here's the sketch:


This is definitely not a card to send to a gentleman -- it's feminine all the way!

Later,
Betty
