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.

Annabelle Stamps Say It With .... Circles


This week the challenge from Annabelle Stamps is to Say It With Circles. I'm not only saying it with circles, I've been going around in circles ever since Saturday when our household goods arrived from the United States. It's been a crazy few days unpacking and shuffling furniture and it's not over yet!
My card was made with a Creamy Caramel card base from Stampin' Up, stamped with Backgrounds By Design2. The circular border from Sentimental Bluebells was stamped in the accent color of Not Quite Navy by Stampin' Up on an ivory base, and cut with circle and scalloped circle dies. The butterfly from All Things Grow was stamped twice; once in the center of the decorative and again, cut out for dimension. Another circular element is the sentiment which was printed on cork circles (one wine cork bit the dust to add this element!)
Hope you enjoyed my card and also enjoy the challenge this week -- please join us!
