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.

Christmas Cards

Hello All! Just wanted to share a Christmas card that I made recently for ABC Christmas Challenges. They are up the the letter U and it stands for "Unused Stash". We are to use something that we have never used before and show a picture of the "unused stash" -- I'll start there. Here is a picture of a set of unused Christmas stamps -- I love that snowglobe so thought it would be perfect for my project. Of course, the mittens, snowman and skate are adorable too! I got this set last year after all my Christmas cards were completed so they never saw any ink! It's about time to put them to work!
And now, here's the card that I made with the snowglobe stamp. Also used the Merry Christmas greeting and one of the snowflakes. I love the red and white color combo and that gorgeous  striped ribbon comes from Gina K. Designs.

 I do have a few more Christmas cards to share but those will wait till another day -- hope all of my friends are having a wonderful day, wherever they may be! (beautiful sunshine here in Chapala!)

Thank you for visiting my blog. I love seeing all the deer and it does cut down on mowing the yard too. I live in the woods and the bear wasn't all that welcome but he left fairly soon, just the nerves took awhile.
