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 Glitters

I was fooling around today, trying to come up with a technique to teach at our next card making session. Thought I might try cutting the image into three pieces to make a "tile" effect but after putting the glitter on this one, I decided not to cut it apart 'cause I might end up with even MORE glitter all over the place!!!

I think I like the blues and glitter -- I had colored the little bow red on the ornament but decided to paper piece it with the blue paper instead. The ribbon bow was added at the last minute because I dropped the top to the black ink pad and it left a mark right in the top middle of my matted image. Arrrgggh! I think I covered the mess up pretty well, though!

It's a beautiful day in my neighborhood -- hope it's the same in yours!

We papercrafters don't have 'messes', we have creative opportunities :) Looks like you definitely took advantage of yours! Beautifully done, Betty, and your 'students' will love making this! Hugs...
