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.

Flowers and Valentines



I have two cards to share with you today. The elephant image is from Nina May and the card was made for a challenge at There's Magic in the Air. Olga Jewell extended the challenge to use red ribbon, buttons and glitter, or something that sparkles. This card also fits the criteria for the Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge to use a Valentine theme. The card with the flowers is for a challenge at stampTV to use inchies. I used Gina K's stamp set Elegant Flowers and inked the stamp with SU's Regal Rose and Always Artichoke. The second flower was stamped without reinking and the sentiment is from SU's set Thank You Kindly. Hope you enjoyed my cards and have a chance to enjoy a challenge or two yourself!

I agree with Nilla both are absolutely fab creations! Love that heart pp on the ellie card (matches the hearts coming out of her trunk beautifully!) and that glittery skirt on her is just gorgeous! Thanks for playing with us at TMITA/PCC this week and hope you can come back and join in next week too!
