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.

Annabelle Embossing

Got inspired by my friend Sue Walsh's blog yesterday to do a Christmas embossing challenge at Annabelle Stamps. I'm using their sketch challenge from last week since Sue assures us that it is fine to combine the two. The cardstock base is Gina K. Pure Luxury 120 lb. DP is from Stampin Up "I Wish" Simply Scrappin' kit. Foil strips are from AC specialty papers, Christmas Foil. I stamped my SU tree on textured brown cardstock from the SU kit and embossed with Martha Stewart green ep, MS glitter for the star, and MS red gemtone stickers in the upper right corner. I do like how this one turned out and hope you do too!

Bye for now,
