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.

Two Challenges -- Two Cards



My first card is made with Sketch #254 from Card Positioning Systems. All products used are Stampin' Up with the exception of the stick-on rhinestones and the butterfly brad. All in shades of Bashful Blue except for that little dot of extra color in the center butterfly.


My second card is also in shades of blue and was made for the Merry Monday Sketch #9; card stock from Gina K. Designs, Papertrey, Ink Stampin' Up,  and an unknown patterned paper. The snowflake is a rub-on from me & my BIG ideas which is surrounded with clear rhinestones. Stamp is from Layers of Color; die cut from Spellbinders, punch from Martha Stewart and Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Hope you enjoyed my cards in blues and white and hoping you all have a "rosy" day!
