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.

A Christmas CASE of Joy


Over at thehousethatstampsbuilt.com the challenge is to CASE this card by Joy Hadden that is shown at the right.
I cased Joy's layout and also followed ABC's Christmas Challenge to use black and white, with only the image having color. I attempted to make "brads" but was not thrilled with the outcome so I just punched a little black circle and added pearls in the middle! Other tools used were a Cuttlebug embossing folder, two punches from Stampin' Up (scallop border and tiny circle) and nestabilities from Spellbinders. My focal image is a stamp I picked up from the $1 bin at Michael's a couple of years ago. Okay, I just read all the instructions about the ABC challenge and we were supposed to use the freebie Dustin Pike image, so if you enter their challenge, be sure to read all the rules!! I may not be able to win a prize, but I do have another Christmas card done and that's a prize in itself!!
Yall come back now, 'ya hear!
