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.

This card was made for the color challenge at Just Us Girls to use Light Blue, White, and Green. I love the soft colors; the card base is SU Bashful Blue, and ribbon from Michael's borders the top and bottom. I used the Quickutz Scalloped Circle embossing folder on the white cardstock and then stamped the image from Gina K. Design's Spring Mix StampTV kit. Sentiment is also from the same kit. Some light green pearls for the corners and my card was done!

I have one other card I'd like to show you. My friend Melisa gave me this stamp from The Angel Company and I just had to get it inky. Colored the flower with Bic Markers and cut it out with a Nestability die. The dp is from Gina K. Design's Spring Mix StampTV kit. Graduated sizes of white pearls along the border of the dark brown GKD Pure Luxury cardstock finished it off. Thanks, Melisa, I love the stamp and so does my DD!
