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.

Hello my online friends! I'm tickled pink (or maybe blue/mustard) with the way this card turned out. You probably recognize the image -- it's from Mo Manning and the card is made for Cathy Edgar's Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge to use at least three punches, for Vicki Dutcher's stampTV Sketch Challenge, and PaperPlay Challenge to use good luck or thank you as a theme. Paper colors are Stampin' Up Brilliant Blue and More Mustard. The More Mustard piece is embossed with (oops! a blooper! typed "emblossed" first -- just trying to emulate Gina K!) Sizzix Dots and Vines folder. Colored the image with Bic markers and used pieces of three different stamps for the sentiment. Had to "borrow" one of DH's cookies for the photo! Now, your mission (should you choose to accept it), go make your own (card or cookie, your preference!)
