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.

Oh, SO Good!


Well, I have to admit --- this made me want to go to the kitchen and bake a cake! But I’m afraid mine won’t look as good and I certainly don’t want to attract mice!! LOL!
First of all, the sketch is from The Sweet Shop Sketch Challenge Blog. The cake is a requirement for the C.R.A.F.T 58 challenge – to use Cakes/Cupcakes or Ice Cream. The cute image is from Phindy’s Place and I have taken their current challenge to use embossing on my card. I used a Cuttlebug embossing border folder on my scalloped edge and I’m entering Speedy the Cat’s Friends challenge again since I used a punch on my scalloped edge. Last, but certainly not least, I have used cork which is an element Our Creative Corner wants us to use. I got real cork paper from McMahon Five Designs.
