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.

Monochromatic and Sketch Challenges



I've got two challenges working on my card today.
Paper Play Challenges wants us to make a monochromatic card with ribbon.
A La Card Monkey wants us to use something blue and their sketch below...

My patterned papers are from Stampin' Up, the solid is a textured card stock from the Paper Studio. A circle of Stampin' Up Bashful Blue that has been distressed is under the darker solid. The bird stamp is also from the Paper Studio, a set titled Botanicals and Birds.  A bit of thin grosgrain ribbon that I found in my "ribbon pieces" jar completes this card -- hope you enjoyed it!

I love a monochromatic card! Your bird is adorable. I love the two-toned look on the circles too. Thanks for taking part in our A La Card Monkey challenge!

Some of my favorite cards are monochromatic. This one is great! I like how the bird image is off the layered circle. Good job!
