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.

Two Projects to Share


Today is the last day for the Three Cheers for Chairs Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. This chair is a free digi image from Bird's Cards and was printed on "leather-like" paper and cut out; after coloring the wood portion, I popped the leather chair seat back on. I also punched several little circles for the "tufted buttons" and adhered them onto the back of the chair. The sentiment reads "Rest, Relax, Recover"; "Hope You're Feeling Better Soon!" and was computer generated.

My next project is a Matchbook Cover for a small gift. Karen threw out this challenge over at stampTV on the Anything But a Card challenge. I had a bit of trouble with the measurements but finally got things to work and was very pleased with the outcome. It's a perfect little gift holder! Don't you just adore this ribbon that I picked up on sale at Michael's?

Hope you enjoyed these and are having a lovely day!
