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.

Sassy White Pearls

My title indicates some of the challenges I used to make this card. The sweet image is from Sassy Cheryl's and her challenge was to use white on white; only the image could have color. Colors used are from Color Dare 66; Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie, Kiwi Kiss, and Baja Breeze. I used Stampin' Up inks and a blender pen to color this precious image. My white cardstock was embossed with Sizzix and Cuttlebug embossing folders and I used Nestabilities Labels Eleven to cut out the image and the dotted mat. Next I added ribbon and pearls. The pearls are for the challenge at Annabelle Stamps to (guess what????) USE PEARLS! I'm hoping this little guy doesn't have to hang out on the line too long before he gets dry -- I'm sure someone is missing him!
