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 Release Week



It's release week at Flourishes and the noon challenge today was to make a card with the inside decorated as well as the outside. Last week I embossed this image from Flourishes Calla Lilies  in white on pink. I really loved that look and used it again but added a little color to the flowers, stems and leaves with watercolor crayons and a blender pen. I like the depth that just a little bit of color gave to the image. I already had the bow tied and waiting patiently to be popped onto this card.


For the inside I used another stamp from the same set and added a Happy Birthday tag. This will be one more card for our church.
