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 Manly Card

Here's my idea of a manly card to celebrate not only Father's Day but also to celebrate Flourishes May release of new stamp sets! I used Nestabilities and a Sizzix Embossing Folder to dress up the card stock (Bordering Blue and Close to Cocoa from Stampin' Up) then stamped the grandfather clock from Gina K. Designs, "Special Fathers", Nina Brackett, illustrator. Stamped it twice; once to color and another on gold paper to cut out for the face of the clock and the pendulum and weights. That's stretchy gold cord around the ovals and now it's time to ..... Say Goodbye!
