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.

Leaves


I picked up a new stamp set today -- Leaf and Branch by Martha Stewart. The color challenge at stampTV this week is to use any shades of blue and green. This card also qualifies for the sketch challenge at Midnight Madness. The leaves were stamped with SU Old Olive and colored with SU Certainly Celery and a blender pen. My papers are single sheets so no info is available. Jute string and a button from my collection are the finishing touches. Till later.....happy stamping!
