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.

Card Drive and Color Challenge

I have two cards to share with you this evening! The first is another dragonfly card for the neo-natal unit card drive. The dragonfly was downloaded from a free clip art site and colored with Bic markers. I was really happy with the coloring of the dragonfly and was also pleased with the sponged ribbon tag. Hope this will bring a bit of comfort to a grieving family.

The second card was done for this week's color challenge at stampTV. The challenge was to use metallics. A piece of copper card stock (although it looks more gold in the picture) was embossed with Cuttlebug's Stylized Flowers folder. I made the faux metallic flower and stem by following this tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers. Cut out some light green cardstock so that the flower would show up a little better and added a flower pot from Papertrey Ink's Everyday Button Bits.

Hope you'll come visit again!
