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.

Midnight Madness Sketch43


Hope you enjoy my card for Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge 43. The "grungy" music background paper and frame are from Pam LeFors Designs -- isn't it gorgous? Can you see the flowers in the bottom left hand corner? The wheat stamp is from River City Rubber Works and is embossed in gold. The little butterfly punch is from Marvy; punched out of gold card stock with gold microbeads for the body. The ivory piece is embossed with Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots embossing folder. Thanks for coming by to take a look -- come by any time!!
