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.

Flourishes Gimme Ten!

This time next week, Flourishes will be wrapping up its sneak peek week with three new beautiful sets being unveiled! So, to get ready for the big reveal….the DT is ushering in a fun-filled challenge to give us a chance to win each and every one of them! Mark your calendar — the fun starts NEXT WEDNESDAY!!
All you need is ten minutes and a dash of creativity to play in the latest Release Week Challenge! It’s one that gives you a chance to WIN the entire release for June!
Here is the card that I created:

My game plan for a quick card involved patterned paper, ribbon and stick on pearls. I would not normally color an image for a "quick" card but this image only used three colors and I scribbled each marker on my acrylic block and applied the color with a blender pen -- quick and easy! This stamp is from Flourishes' set called Calla Lilies -- have you seen it????
I usually always try to play in the challenges during Flourishes' Release Week but I will be out of town (AGAIN!) next week -- we will  be in Puerto Vallarta enjoying the beach, the pools, Lazy River tubing, and gorgeous scenery at the Grand Mayan. Hope you all have opportunity to play -- they always have extra fun challenges and fabulous stamp sets for some lucky winners!!
