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.

Midnight Madness CAS


Have you checked out the sketch challenges at Midnight Madness? You get your choice of two sketches -- one is clean and simple and the other takes the same sketch to the next level by using lots of embellies. The colors that I have used for this card were a challenge by Carla Suto at stampTV. Card base is SU Old Olive, DP is Basic Grey Origins. I have used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the larger vanilla layer and sponged the smaller one with So Saffron after stamping with $1 stamp from Michael's. The center of the flower is punched from the dp and a pretty little bow added.

See ya later, alligators,
Betty
