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.

Colorful Challenge


Hello all! this card is for Vicki Dutcher's Weekly Color Challenge at Scrapbooking and Crafting Friends. She wanted us to use bright colors -- and I found these that I liked! Stampin' Up's Cameo Coral, Tempting Turquoise, Lovely Lilac and Old Olive. DP is an older print from SU. Stamps are from Papertrey Ink (sentiment) and Studio G (flower). I colored the brads with Bic permanent markers. Carol (Grammawamma) pointed me to SCS for the tutorial for the Folded Frame. It is not a difficult piece to craft and it gives a wonderful presentation for your image. (Carol has been using the folded frame with photos, and they look great!)
