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.

Sketch & Color


Happy Morning to Everyone! This card was made for the first ever sketch challenge from Creative Clear Stamps as well as the color challenge from Color Dare 61 to use Pretty in Pink, Green Galore and Basic Black. The butterfly stamp is from the Paper Studio, Botanicals & Birds; the sentiment stamp is from Gina K. Designs, Eclectic Summer Sayings. I didn't have a Green Galore ribbon so went a shade lighter with Certainly Celery, topping it with a piece of black ribbon. I punched the squares with Stampin' Up punches and cut the circles with Nestabilities and the frame for the sentiment with Ribbon Tag Trio 2.
Come on over to Creative Clear Stamps and get in on the ground floor with the first challenge. If you don't have their stamps, it's okay, (I don't have any yet, emphasis on the yet!) you may win some!!
