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.

Get Well Wishes


Had another sleepless night and this card was the result. I was pleased with its clean and simple look. I used three different stamp sets -- All Things Grow and Backgrounds by Design2 by Annabelle Stamps and Kind Caring Thoughts by Stampin' Up. My card has a So Saffron base, with a layer of Whisper White, stamped in So Saffron ink. The flower image and sentiment are stamped in So Saffron ink on So Saffron cardstock, framed with More Mustard; they were all cut out with rectangular nestabilities and I added a couple of rhinestones to the flower layer. The butterfly was also stamped in So Saffron ink on white cardstock. This card will the entered in the following challenges:
Annabelle Stamps -- Say It In Yellow (like my friend Sue, I used "mellow yellow"!)
Phindy's Place Challenge and Stampin' B's -- both are for a monochromatic card.
