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.

4 Square

Just a quick post to share a card with you today. No challenges, just made this because I had the image left over from a similar card I posted a while back. It started out with six squares but one of them didn't stamp well so I cut off two of the squares, added vanilla and navy mat layers, embossed the bottom of the card and added a birthday sentiment with a ribbon tag trio die and a piece of sheer navy ribbon. The last step was adding the matted image to the card front. Oops, I forgot to say that I rounded off two opposite corners and the stamp is one I found in MIchael's $1 bin.

Happy Valentine's Day to all,

Isn't it fun to sit down and create a card 'just because'??? Beautifully done, Betty - I love the soft colors. What a nice greeting that will be for someone special! Thanks for sharing...
