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.

Sweet Babies



Hello friends!! I am finally feeling better today. My sinuses have been giving me fits lately. Gina K.'s latest challenge over on stampTV is for us to make a card inspired by the above photo by Anne Geddes. Who doesn't love her photos?????? When I saw the picture I knew that I wanted to make a onesie for each one of these cutie "twosies"! Card stock is Pure Luxury White and Lemon Drop by Gina K. Designs and the blue patterned paper is a digi paper from Gina K. The pink paper is by Stampin'Up while the striped paper comes from a K&Co paper pack. I stamped the onesie from Wee Tees by Gina K. Designs on the patterned papers and cut them out. The sentiment is from the new stampTV kit, Spring Mix. The tools I used were Nesties, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Swiss Dots, scissors and sponge daubers!! Hope may card made you remember sweet days of babies and the smell of baby powder!! And if you know someone expecting twins, let me know!
