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.

Valentine Card for Sunshine and Kym

I have made this card for a challenge at Sunshine Stamps on Show and Tell Cards and Scrap Pages. Kym Weber extended the challenge to make a Valentine Themed card with a bow, designer paper, brads or buttons and lots of glitter! My card base is SU's Night of Navy, the dp is the hearts and stripes (maker not known, sorry!) I have used five brads, the large one was coated with SU Crystal Effects and covered with Dazzling Diamonds glitter. There is also glitter on the hearts from the stamped image by SU. I probably have more glitter on me than on the card -- does that count Kym???? Ribbon is from Gina K. Designs.

On a personal note, my MIL had her hip surgery today and the doctor said all went well. Now it's up to her to work with the rehab folks and get mobile again! Thanks for your prayers!
