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.

You're In My Thoughts


This card was lots of fun and the color challenge from City Crafter is also fun (especially when you chant it!) Pink, Purple and Pearls; Pink, Purple and Pearls! I've used Stampin' Up's Pretty In Pink, Lavender Lace and Blush Blossom. I've also used Glossy Pearl card stock and embossed the Blush Blossom panel with Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots Embossing Folder to add a little interest and to meet the challenge at Speedy's Friends to use embossing. The pink and purple flowers with matching colored rhinstones were a gift from my sweet friend in Canada, Connie Legath. The sketch challenge was also a fun one that came from Melissa at StampTV.
