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.

Metallic Beauty


This is the beautiful trigger for Moxie Fab's Tuesday Trigger
and here's my card.
I love that beautiful little chest! It just struck a chord in my heart (could it have been my mojo returning??) and I knew what I wanted to do with my card. The gold and copper pieces were embossed with Cuttlebug folders and then I layered a regular piece of cardstock with 4 or 5 layers of silver embossing power and then did an impression of the "love" stamp. The small rhinestones and silver charms finish off the silver layer (it looks bluish, but is actually a piece of textured silver paper). Made a double loop bow with my BowEasy and some sparkly ribbon. Hope you enjoy the card -- I sure did enjoy making it!!
