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 in Pink with Bling

I have a valentine today that was made for a Flourishes challenge to have pink as your main color. The sketch is from Annabelle Stamps; their sketches must include bling! Unfortunately the camera doesn't capture the beauty of the sliver bling! Take my word for it, it's pretty!

Michael's seems to be my "go-to" place for most of the elements on this card. Items from Michael's are the heart stamp, ribbon, and silver adhesive brads. The flourish stamp is SeeD's Nightingale Savoir Faire Series. My card base is SU Regal Rose and the other pinks are rom misc. 12x12 pages.

This valentine goes out to all my internet stamping friends!
