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.

Card with Flower


I had trouble sleeping last night so I made some flower embellies -- making our own flowers is the challenge at There's Magic in the Air/Paper Cupcakes and Fab N Funky Challenges. Cut out my flower layers with a Spellbinders Nestabilities die set, spritzed with water and crumpled up the layers and put them together with a brad. The paper for the flower and also for the background are from My Mind's Eye. I also used a couple of Martha Stewart punches and Spellbinders oval dies to cut out the sentiment which is from Gina K. Designs, Fanciful Tags. I'd also like to enter this in Donna Baker's stampTV Mix it Up Monday challenge to make a shabby chic card.
