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.

Cute Treat Box


Hello all! My card today is not a card but is an Anything But A Card Challenge from Karen at stampTV. The box was made from 4 pieces cut with a Sizzix Bigz Scallop Envelope die. The tutorial can be found at Splitcoast Stampers. The cupcake image comes from Nina May at There's Magic in the Air/Paper Cupcakes. Their challenge was to not make an ordinary card but to use a special fold. Well, I didn't make a special fold card but I didn't make an ordinary card either! I made a box -- is this okay, friends at TMITA? It was a fun project to make but I can tell you from experience, be sure to read the directions carefully!!

Later, Betty
