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.

Manly Hearts


This card will be entered into four challenges:
Our Creative Corner Sketch Challenge

Our Creative Corner Challenge to make a masculine valentine card

Crazy 4 Challenges to use a valentine theme

Our Daily Bread Designs Shine the Light Challenge to use hearts

My cs colors are Bordering Blue, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa and Ruby Red by Stampin'Up. The stamps are also from SU, and I've used some red and brown brads for accent. The Close to Cocoa background paper has been embossed with Cuttlebug's Bird Call folder.

If you like challenges I'd recommend that you check out one or all of these -- you just might have some fun or win a prize!
