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.

Three More and I'm Done!

These are the last three cards I'll be posting with the Spirelli medallion technique for a while. I've finished using up the materials I prepared for last Saturday's card class. Just whisper a prayer for me that they will sell as quickly as I made them into cards!! Stamp on the above medallion is Stampin' Up.

This flower stamp is a two stamp process and is a clear stamp set from Martha Stewart. The sentiment is from Layers of Color and was cut with a Spellbinders Banner die. The medallions are popped up on all the cards and so is the banner sentiment on this one.

Both of these stamps are Stampin' Up; the butterfly is a Martha Stewart Punch and the ribbon was in my "pieces of ribbon" jar! The little butterfly is 3D with his wings turned up.

We had friends over last evening for a game of Catch Phrase. We always laugh so much when we play that game together. It is an electronic game; you pick a category and a word comes up on the device. The object is to give clues and make your team guess what the word is. We play guys against the gals and end up rolling on the floor laughing at some of the clues!! If you ever get a chance to play this game, grab it!! I guarantee you'll have a great time!
