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.

Sleepless in Texas


I got the idea for the layout of this card while trying to get to sleep last night. Couldn't get to sleep so I got up and made the card! It's for three challenges.
1. Blast from the Past at stampTV to use some sort of stitching on your card. (Mine is faux cross stitch!) The wonderful stamp of the butterfly and the sentiment are from Gina K. Designs, Take Flight.
2. Color Dare 60 to use real red, gable green, more mustard and tempting turquoise.
3. Oh Alice Challenge 5 to use a butterfly or caterpillar.

Because of the Oh, Alice site I just discovered and also because Mo Manning just gave her Papercraft Planet members a freebie of the White Rabbit, I am headed to the library to get a copy of Alice in Wonderland. Never have read it -- how did that happen??? But I mean to correct the situation!

Till later,
Betty
