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.

Coral Patterns

Hooray! Blogger is back on line! I made this card for Tina Gilliland's Mix It Up Monday Challenge at StampTV. She wanted us to use TWO (her capital letters!) designer papers. Guess I'm a bit of a rebel at heart -- I did use TWO papers, but they were double sided. So, I ended up with more than two patterns. The stamp is from Gina K. Designs, You Are Not Alone, colored with Stampin' Up markers, Cameo Coral and Garden Green. A while back I had made a card with two little folded frames and I made this larger one at that time. I embossed the solid color paper and used some sheer coral ribbon for the bow. Hope you like it! I'll be around to see what you all have been cooking up now that Blogger is back!
