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 Stamps Challenges

My card today is for two challenges at Annabelle Stamps. The first is a sketch challenge and the second is a color challenge to "Say it in ...... Cream"!
I used a piece of glossy cream cardstock and embossed it with a Sizzix embossing folder (Swirls with Waves). It was so darn gorgeous after the embossing process that I was tempted to stop there (it would definitely have been clean and simple)!! But on to complete the sketch challenge. I stamped part of Flourishes' musical score from "Christmas Music" in versamark and embossed with black embossing powder; then rounded the corners. Next I stamped a sentiment from Stampin Up's "Star-Studded Season" and heat embossed that too. Cut with a Nestabilities Ribbon Tag Trio 2 and added a piece of cream grograin ribbon to attach. Hope you enjoy my card -- I think it is simply elegant!!
