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.

CD69 and MMSC59

I have to quickly post another card because time is running short for The Color Dare #69 to use Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and Tempting Turquoise. I only have one of these exact Stampin' Up colors but I have used the basic color pallette of yellow, aqua, and turquoise. I used Cuttlebug's Bloom Dots embossing folder to emboss the solid color panels. Paper pieced one of the circles from the dp on the turquoise embossed panel, then stamped with pieces from three different sets! Nestabilities cut out the ovals and a pretty bow completes the process. Hope you enjoy the colors as well as the sketch from Midnight Madness. I used their "plainer" sketch rather than the one that is "all dressed up"! Both are shown below.
