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.

Turquoise Birthday

I'll be entering this card in two different challenges: The Designer Choice Color Challenge by Patti J. Gilliam at the Repeat Impressions Stamps blog, "The House That Stamps Built" and Helen Dooley's For Fun Challenge which is to make a birthday card.

For some reason I have never been able to master the Bow Easy. This time, even though my bow isn't exactly perfect, I made it with the Bow Easy and it looked good enough to use on a card!! And I love this sparkly, sheer turquoise ribbon.

Patti's color challenge was to use black, white and one other color. The layout is from a download from Paper Crafts magazine's online site; there were many different ideas for birthday cards and this one just yelled out for me to use it.

Hope you all had a great day today and have a fabulous Friday tomorrow!

Great card and I love the colors.
I finally mastered the Bow Easy and made a great bow. Now I have to find a card to put it on. LOL
Just to let you know, everytime I do a bow I have to go to the tutorial on how to do it. lol
