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.

Not Quite Tie Dye


I have another card to post today. The sketch is for the Midnight Madness challenge and Melanie Muenchinger has challenged us to make a "tie-dyed" card at her blog, Hands, Head, and Heart. I didn't have a stamp that I thought would make a normal tie dye with the circles, but I got as close as I could. The background layer reminds me of tie-die with the splashes of purple. Card stock and inks are from Stampin' Up, Ballet Blue, Lovely Lilac, Brilliant Blue, and Perfect Plum. Stamp is Gina K. Designs, Wee Tees, Illustrator Melanie Muenchinger. The sentiment is Stampin' Up, So Many Sayings. The ribbon is Mega Roll Narrows, from Big Lots. Who knows, I may be back again -- look for me right here!
