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.

A Sketch and a Blast from the Past


The sketch is Card Patterns Sketch 55 and the Blast from the Past challenge comes from stampTV to use the thumping technique. Card base is Stampin' Up Very Vanilla with the next layer being Pumpkin Spice Pure Luxury card stock by Gina K. Designs, embossed with Bloom Dots embossing folder by Cuttlebug. Designer paper is from the Simply Delightful pack by My Mind's Eye. Stamps are by Studio G, colored in Stampin' Up More Mustard and thumped with SU Pumpkin Pie. Rhinestones were a sweet surprise from Vicki Dutcher (thanks, Vicki!) and ribbon from Michael's.
