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' New Release Challenge

Flourishes is changing up their challenge for the November release. They are having a progressive challenge and there are four steps to the challenge. You can read all about the changes here.

Step 1  Starts with a sketch. I believe I've got the sketch covered!
Step 2 Involves color. You must use a monochromatic color theme. My colors are shades of Green.

Step 3 Decorative Paper -- you must add a splash of decorative paper somewhere on your card. I have both light and dark green decorative paper.

Step 4 Sparkle -- add sparkle of your choice. Rhinestones are my sparkle of choice -- green ones for the butterfly and the sentiment; clear ones to indicate the butterfly's flight path! The ribbon also has a bit of sparkle in it.

Now, you can make a card with all of the requirements included or you can make four cards with each single ingredient -- it's your choice. Be sure to follow the link above to read all about this challenge and then join in the fun!

And it's so fun to read about the ministry you support. We have a real heart for Mexico, and work with a Church in Mexico City taking our students every other year. Blessings on what you're doing!
