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 Get Sketchy" on stampTV


I have been away from stampTV for a while but when I saw Theresa Momber's sketch for the Free For All Friday challenge, I just couldn't pass it up. Here is the sketch. I made my card with Blush Blossom cardstock by Stampin' Up, and patterned paper from My Mind's Eye, Simply Delightful. The stamps are from the stampTV kit, Elegant Flowers, the first kit I ever purchased and still one I use over and over. I heat embossed the stamping with black and added pearls in the bottom corner.

Thanks for stopping by,
Betty
