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 Joy



This is my card using Lesley's Merry Monday Sketch #11. I think it turned out really cute and it went together so quickly -- would be an excellent card to mass produce. My image is recycled from a old Christmas card, cut out and embossed with a scalloped oval Nestability.

I am also entering this card in the Dutch Dare Challenge which is to use dots and stripes. The green/brown strip of paper has both stripes and dots but you can't ever have too many dots, so I added more with the red panel!

I've been meaning to share this cute little basket that I made several days ago. Saw one over on LeAnne's site, Wee Inklings. The instructions for the basket can be found here.


Have a wonderful day, my friends!
Betty

You are talented. As you will be able to tell - I am trying to do some catch up peeking and snooping around. I just always seem to run out of time!!
