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.

A Roses Winter Wonderland



Kym challenged us to created a Winter card in shades of blue for our January challenge. I created a shaker card by punching out a bunch of little circles -- didn't think I would ever get finished punching out all those little guys!! Sorry......I'm pulling your leg; I have a border punch that gives you a bunch of those circles, only they normally go in the trash!

I used Royal Snowflake Glitter Rub Ons; did one on a piece of glittery card stock that I cut out and used in the corner; rubbed on a couple of smaller one on the acetate that encloses those little "shakers", and one more in the upper right corner -- rubbed it directly onto the card base.

The stamp is from Stampin' Up -- Star Studded Season. It also was stamped directly onto the card base so that the shaker part of the card would be the main focal point.

Be sure to check out the other Roses in the bouquet -- they are quite a group of talented, sweet and fun ladies and you can find links to their blogs on my sidebar!

There were a couple of other challenges that fit the theme of this card.
Jellypark Challenges -- to create a Winter Wonderland
Crafty Contagion -- to make a Winter or Snowy card
Papertrey Ink Make it Monday -- shaker card
