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.

Black, White & Gray


I have pretty card for you today, at least I hope you think it is! The color challenge is from Tina Gilliland at stampTV to use black, white, and gray. The sketch challenge is from Creative Clear Stamps; I rotated it a bit. I printed the Digi-Sparkle stamps on dp and cut them out. Wish I could fit into this dress -- the black and white paper reminds me of a batik skirt I used to have back when I was about the right size to wear this dress! You can see I've used the trusted Swiss Dots embossing folder again to go along with the polka dot dress and the sentiments are computer generated.

See you later,
Betty
