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.

Pretty Peony

I have a birthday card to share today. The colored peony is my favorite image from Beccy's Place and the background paper and banner are from Uniko Studio. I did the birthday sentiment in MS Word, printed and adhered it to the banner from Uniko. Then added some rhinestones to the butterflies.

The flower was printed and cut out with a Spellbinders die and then I traced around the outside of the die on the green paper to make a thinner mat. I like all the different colors -- makes me think of flowers and butterflies in the sunshine!

I'll be entering this card into Beccy's October Challenge which is to make a card with any of her wonderful designs!

Well done Betty, another wonderful card from you! I really like the pretty butterflies you added with their sparkly rhinestone bodies. Great job!
