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.

Seeing Spots??

I hope you're seeing spots because that's the challenge from Pat Pedder over at There's Magic in the Air today. We are also to use this cute free image from Paper Cupcakes so hurry over to the TMITA site and snag the image so you can play along too! I found a piece of 12x12 dp with pretty pastel spots that matched well with Gina K. Designs' Pure Luxury Ocean Mist card stock. Also found a piece of spotted ribbon that I purchased at Michael's -- the brand is Winter Whispers. The Color Challenge over at stampTV this week is to use pastel colors -- hoping my pastel background will work for that! I colored my image with Bic markers and sponged the blue and green areas with Garden Green and Bashful Blue from Stampin' Up. The design team at TMITA inspired me to get spotty and I hope that I've helped to inspire you!!

Bye! Bye! Betty
