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.

Crafters of Faith with Freshly Made Sketches

My card today is made with a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #31 and a theme from a "mini-challenge" with the Crafters of Faith which is to make a card that depicts the joy of the Lord that is experienced by His followers. I have to admit that I don't have the best voice in the world (and that's putting it mildly!!) but I do enjoy praising the Lord and singing the glories of His name! And I also enjoy seeing that joy shine through in the faces of  church choir members. (Choir members, please remember to let the joy that you feel come through on your face -- it makes a difference for your congregation!)

This is the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches....

I rotated the sketch 90 degrees; that allowable! You'll also see that any shape is allowed too. If you'd like to enter this sketch challenge and make a card with clean, fresh lines, you have until  Noon, PDT, Monday, April 23. Click on the link to find all the info!

Hope you enjoyed my card of blue and white. I don't know why the liquid pearls didn't show up whiter than they did, but they do look good in real life!
