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.

Midnight Madness in Green

The card I'm posting this evening was made for Tina Gilliland's color challenge at stampTV; she wanted us to use green, any shade or shades of green. The sketch is from Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge 44. Card base is Creme de Menthe Pure Luxury card stock by Gina K. Designs, dp from Basic Grey Origins paper pad. Images are from Stampin' Up Embrace Life, stamped in Certainly Celery ink. Ribbons, rhinestones and a little flower are the embellishments. The Basic Grey paper and the flower were part of the prize package I won for the Midnight Madness Sketch 43. Thanks so much, Janice, at Sunshine & Giggles!

I appreciate your coming by!
