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.

Love These Colors!




I'm going CAS with this card even though something makes me want to do more with it!!  The layout is from
Card Positioning Systems 5th Anniversary Day 8. I have flipped the sketch but I think you can still see it in my card. Here's the sketch:

There is another 5th Anniversary to celebrate -- Papertrey Ink! This is Day 2 of their festivities and there are free downloadable, printable images to be had for the taking (and thanking, of course!) I've used a beautifully colored  image by Melissa Bickford for this card as well as Papertrey Ink white card stock for my card base. The printed papers are from a Stampin' Up Designer Paper Kit and the mat is SU Rose Red. Melissa's image provided the inspiration for my paper choices.

I would also like to enter my card at Flourishes - Bring Back Beautiful - The Beauty of Love challenge.

Hope you enjoyed my card -- the colors make me happy!
