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.

Let's Skate!

I have colored a Sassy Cheryl's image and made this card for her "Snow" Challenge #45; also for Papertake's Weekly Challenge with the theme "Cold and Frosty Morning". It's funny, because most people say "wish you could see the shimmer/sparkle on my card in real life". Well, this photo shows much more shimmer/sparkle than my card does in real life! I picked up the sparkly stick on buttons at Target this morning; they are by EK Success. The snowflakes finishes up a set I bought after Christmas 2009 on sale. I do have a few more rub on snowflakes left though. I know there are a lot of you out there in blog land who have an abundance of snowflakes -- particularly when you go outside! Y'all be careful when you're out driving among those flakes and try to stay warm!

Edited to Add: Thank you, Leanne, for inviting me to enter my card into the Top Tip Tuesday Challenge. Sounds like a great place to learn new things!!
Thanks to my friend Colleen I've found another weekly Christmas challenge site at Sparkle Creations and they want us to make a card with a snowman!

I'm just thrilled that those gorgeous snowflakes are on your card and not in my backyard. :)
Such a super-d-dooper card! Just love it! Thanks for playing in the challenge this week. It seems 'snow' has been the perfect theme for this week.
