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.

Hearts for Speedy's Friends

I have two cards with hearts on them which is the challenge over at Speedy's Friends blog. My first card may not be traditional valentine colors, but orange is my grandson Ashton's favorite color so this will be his valentine. I jotted down the author of this digi when I printed it out but can I find it now????? Of course not! Thought I could find it again at Free Digital Stamps but must be overlooking it somehow -- sorry I can't give credit.

This card was made with the sketch challenge at StampTV. I used three different Gina K. Designs sets -- Wild at Heart, Spring Mix, and Fanciful Tags. Red rhinestones are in the middle of the hearts and the white background is embossed with Cuttlebug's Candy Cane Stripes. I will enter this in the "pink and red" challenge at MelJens Designs. I stamped the flower in white on Real Red cardstock but it looks much more pink than it does white.

Thanks for stopping by,
