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.

7 Kids Christmas Presents

I have two more cards for you today. The first is for 7 Kids College Fund very first challenge. The criteria are to use pink and dots and stamps that can be found in their shop. I used two different patterned papers with dots and then embossed dots (Tiny Bubbles Cuttlebug ef) on a piece of Regal Rose. My stamp is from Inkadinkado, Flourishes Inchies, which can be found here. Hop on over to the 7 Kids site and support their first challenge!

My next card features an image from Mo's Digital Pencil. I finished up my card about two hours too late to enter Mo's Christmas challenge but since this little sweetheart is carrying an armload of presents, she qualifies for ABC Christmas Challenge -- P is for Presents.

On another note, I have a box of 60 cards ready to seal up and send off to Operation Write Home. It will go with prayers for the safety of those who will use the cards (deployed troops) and comfort for those who will receive them (families of our troops).

Till later,
