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.

Recycled Box Top


I used a box top from a recently purchased pair of boots for the focal image of my card today. I cut it out with a Nestabilities die and embossed the greeting in white powder. It was popped up on the four panels of yellow and turquoise, which were embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and adhered to a card base of green.

Tomorrow is my grandson's 7th birthday and I was busy today making cookies for his first grade class. Also stamped the white bakery bags for the cookies. Thanks for stopping by!
