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.

Rejoice



Challenges Entered:
 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown -- Use at least three sparkly rhinestones

Sugar Creek Hollow -- Color combo of Cream, Blue and Brown
Do You Stack Up -- Use ribbons

Repeat Impressions WHAT IF Wed. Sketch Challenge


I'm digging down into my stash of papers and trying to use different ones. These papers come from an old Stampin' Up designer paper pack that I inherited from a cousin years ago. I got so much paper at that time that it's hard to use even a little bit from each pattern! I really have NO NEED whatsoever to buy patterned paper but somehow it just calls my name and pulls me in!!

The stamp is from Layers of Color, Christmas Verses.
 
For embellishments I've used light blue rhinestones, flowers, ribbon, lace and a Martha Stewart branch punch.

This is my second post today. If you'd like to see my card for the Roses' January 2012 Challenge, please see previous post.

Thanks for your visit,
Betty

This is so pretty. I just love this verse. It is not one that I have heard before. I have a big old stash of paper but I am slowly getting it used up. Great job.

Betty, what a gorgeous card. I love this sentiment and your lace is such a beautiful touch. I too have too much paper, but it calls me as well and I have a difficult time resisting. Thanks for playing so faithfully with us at Sugar Creek Hollow.
