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.

One More Christmas Card

I have a Christmas card today that I will be linking to the following challenges:
ABC Christmas Challenge - choose any letter - I chose C is for Candy (and it's also for canes!)
MelJens Challenge - Sweet as Candy (or cookies)
Annabelle Stamps - Say it in Green and Red

The background is from Cloud9 Design (Harvest Holiday Glitter Mat Stack). I heat embossed the greeting and swirl with white powder, cut out one of the candy canes to "hang" on the swirl, and added four green rhinestones. Will this be my last Christmas card this year??? Time will tell.......
