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.

A Get Well Card with A Freshly Made Sketch

Today I am posting another card made with a beautiful bird image from Ephemera's Vintage Garden and sentiment stamp from Gina K. Designs. The paper is a pack from Paper Pizazz -- 12x12 Sarapapers. Instead of vintage/shabby like my card posted on Wednesday, this card is freshly made (get it?) with clean lines and simplicity! Here is the super wonderful Freshly Made Sketch #29 .......

I am getting more comfortable with the vintage style since I've been entering the challanges at Sugar Creek Hollow, but finding the Freshly Made Sketch challenges has been a truly joyful experience for me. I feel that this is my style (fresh clean lines and simplicity) and I love having their wonderful sketches to follow. Seems like my cards just fall together with ease when I'm working with these sketches!

It's a beautiful, sunny day here in Chapala, Mexico but a little cooler. When I was a kid the "old folks" said that there's always a "cool snap" at Easter and I have found that to be true. Hope you all enjoy your day, wherever you may be!
