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.

Howdy!

I have to admit that I was a bit intimidated making this card. The challenge at PaperPlayChallenges was to use black as your card base. I have a lot of black and white dp in storage that I would have used but alas, I had to go with the plain black. Decided to use a new Cuttlebug folder from the Winter Wonderland set and filled in the squares with a Sakura clear gel glitter pen. The image is from MelJens -- he was all dressed up to play cowboy but it was wet outside so Mom made him put on his golashes; but the spurs fit so he was okay with that!! MelJens is the sponsor of the challege at PaperPlayChallenges so check it out and maybe you can win some of these sweet images too! I'm also going to enter this card in the PaperCutzChallenge which is any theme, any color!
