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.

Y is for Yuletide


Since I returned from Mexico I have turned a walk-in closet in a spare bedroom into my stamping room. I don't have all my supplies unpacked but I have been able to make a few cards lately. This is one that I have done for the ABC Christmas Challenged "Y is for Yuletide". We were to use Holly and Berries, or Red and Green, or Candles for the theme of the card.
My main image is from the Doves and Holly set by Flourishes. I used Nestability dies and an embossing folder by QuicKuts. Papers are from Stampin' Up, The Paper Studio Wonderful Christmas Wishes, and AC Specialty Paper Christmas Foil.
Hope your Christmas plans are under control and that you have a blessed holiday!
