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.

Are Rats Funny???


The challenge for this card comes from Digital-Ink Co. at Scrapbook News and Review Magazine. In honor of Global Belly Laugh Day (Jan. 24), Kathy Mueller proposed a Funny Sentiment Challenge featuring a free rat stamp that she will send to you if you email her at silkonglass@gmail.com You've not heard of Global Belly Laugh Day???? On Jan. 24, at 1:24 p.m., we should all smile, throw our arms in the air, and laugh out loud!! Couldn't hurt, could it? The sketch I used comes from The Pink Elephant Challenge 50 and I really like the "cleanness" of it. I am also entering this card in the current challenge at Paper Play Challenges -- to make a card dedicated to our furry friends that bark, squeak, meow, roar, moo, or neigh. I don't know if rats can be considered friends, or if they are furry, but they surely must squeak. Hopefully, they'll accept it!! Card base is Bordering Blue by Stampin Up; also used SU's More Mustard and So Saffron ribbon. The patterned paper is from K&Company. My husband and I collaborated on the caption and it was computer generated. Hope you enjoyed my card!
