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.

Speedy Play Date


Made this card for Speedy's Friends Challenge #7 to make your own designer paper. I used Stampin' Up's background stamp "Posy", stamped in Purely Pomegranate on Whisper White cardstock. The color combination of Raspberry (I used Purely Pomegranate), Aqua, Kraft, and White is for the challenge at Play Date Cafe #33. I used the sketch from StampTV but was about 3 hours too late to enter their challenge. Oh well, I did enjoy the episodes of Ghost Whisperer that I watched tonight instead of finishing up my card!

Later, Betty
