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.

Blues and Greens

This card was made for challenge #8 at Joan's Gardens. Here are the requirements:

Create a card using corner embellishments
Color theme should be Blue and Green
Add some kind of flowers
Use an oval background

I believe I've covered all the bases. My Big Shot got a good workout with all the die cuts I used on this card but it seems like I use it with most all of my cards -- one of the best crafting investments I ever made! I just adore the little pearls I used on the corner embellishments, the sentiment ribbon tag, and the inner white panel with the flower stamp from Gina K. Designs stampTV kit, Spring Mix.

Here's the inside and envelope....

Thanks for stopping by .... come back anytime!
