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.

Merry Monday #10


Here's my card for the Merry Monday #10 sketch challenge. My card base is Stampin' Up Night of Navy, paired with Basic Gray and Going Gray. The trees are from Stubby Stampers and are stamped with Color Box Frost White pigment ink. I added a little clear rhinestone at the top of the trees for a bit of shine. The sentiment stamp was stamped in the same white ink and allowed to dry. Then it was outlined with a Versamarker, using the VersaShadow Technique found here. I added a couple of more rhinestones, a piece of ribbon and a little bow to finish it off and I have one more Christmas card done!

I have a couple of other pictures to share with you. Our dog sitting job came to an end this past Friday when we took Peppe back to his mom. It was really a tough job, but somebody had to do it!!!!


Now, I don't want to sign off with a photo of me being terribly lazy, so I'll share another sunrise. Can you see the "fat flame" surrounding the sun?


Later,
Betty
