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.

Bears for Brianna


My card today is a Valentine card for my 3 year old granddaughter Brianna. I have four Valentine bears on a shelf in my closet, in varying sizes. Each time she is over here she asks me to get the bears for her to play with. The image is from Nina May at There's Magic in the Air, challenge hosted by Sue (Tillymint). Sue, my project had a mind of its own and I ended up without the tag and without the stitching!! Am I terrible, or what??? Linda Payne gave me the inspiration because she resized the images for her project. After printing the images, I colored them with markers and cut them out. The sentiment oval is cut out with a ProvoCraft die and attached with a shiny brown ribbon. I am also entering this card in the DareU2Digi Challenge to use hearts or valentines and a digi image. I know Brianna will love the bears and we'll have to wait and see if it makes her thinks of the bears at my house!!

Betty, I am sure Brianna will certainly think of the little bears she asks to play with when she sees it. Isn't that the fun thing about digis is being able to resize them!! Your card is just adorable and I love that they are all differnt in color, is that the color of the bears she plays with? super cute!! Thanks for linking this so we could enjoy it as well! :O) Thanks for playing along with our challenge this week over at TMITA/PCC! Hope to see you next week!
