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.

P is for Presents


P is for Presents over at the ABC Christmas Challenge site and there is an option of adding lace to your card if you would like. Glad it's an option, cause I forgot about it till just now!! lol
I used my Lacy (hey, maybe this will count for the lace!!) Tree Cuttlebug embossing folder for the tree (does it remind you at all of the retro silver trees with blue ornaments????). I had misplaced this folder last December and have been wondering where in the world it could be -- well, I went to stamp with a friend this past Thursday and found it in my Big Shot carrying bag! I knew it was going to turn up somewhere!!!
The presents were stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with sparkly clear powder and then cut out to put "under the tree". Ribbon to decorate the top of the tree and my card is complete!

Thanks for stopping by,
Betty

Betty,
Your tree is not only inspirational but memorable as well. I remember those trees all to well. Do you remember the ones with the flock and those revolving color wheels. Those things got so hot they would be outlawed for sure now! LOL
