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.

Make It Monday


Do you play over at Make It Monday with Papertrey Ink? This week they are showcasing the 46 videos that they did this past year, highlighting different techniques. The challenge is to pick one of your favorites or one that you may have missed to use on your card. I think that I am going to try several of them this week as there is no limit to the number of times you can enter.



This card uses a technique demonstrated by Nichole Heady -- Line Frame 101 (Make It Monday #12). I have used one of the new Papertrey Ink sets that I just received called Gracious Vases. The background is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and the image is double matted. I like the clean look of this card and will be pleased to send it out as a Thank You!

love that EF folder for the background - your layering really sets this off - one of the best CAS I've seen (-:
