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.

ABC...


Patti J. turned me on to a "new to me" challenge -- the ABC Christmas Challenge. This week the letter of the alphabet is "O" and we are to make a card with ornaments; but we also have to have gloss and shine. I stamped my imnage and then covered the ornaments with Crystal Effects and sprinkled with a bit a glitter. I also have some shiny gold card stock, along with a gold embossed sentiment. Thanks Patti -- I enjoyed making this glossy and shiny card. Hoping they have a record of all their challenges; I may have to start with "A" and work forward!
