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.

2nd Post Today for 2 Challenges














Here's my card for the Color Challenge at stampTV to use black, white and kraft, and the sketch challenge at Annabelle Stamps.

Black and white always makes such an elegant card. My base cardstock is Gina K. Pure Luxury Kraft and as for the black and patterned paper -- I got it at Ross! (That's a line from their commercial, if you don't have a Ross in your area!) The Thank You stamp came from Michael's, as did the ribbon and the pearls. I used my Oval Nestabilitites to cut out the main image. Hope that you enjoyed my card and that you'll be back to visit again!
