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.

A Square Card


Hello friends! The sketch for this card is from Jennie Harper over at stampTV. I had a lot of fun with this sketch, and even though my card is CAS, it seemed to take longer to put together. Still, I think it was worth a little extra trouble!! Embellish Magazine extended a challenge to use turquoise, brown, and pink and to add ribbon and I loved working with these colors. Hope you enjoy them and my card too! Oh, yes, I cut out my ovals with Nestabilities and the stamp is from the set Friendship Blooms by Stampin' Up.
