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.

Operation Write Home Independence Blog Tour

I have two cards to show you that are "kinda-sorta" the same card. I failed to read all the directions and did not make a birthday card as the challenge required. So, I went back and "doctored up" the orginal, to add the sentiment "Happy 234th USA!", which was computer generated. The precious heart shaped "flag" was a freebie from Designed2Delight that was posted on the Crafters Digital Art Center. I will be sending this card in my next batch to Operation Write Home (sending cards to deployed military personnel so that they can keep in touch with their loved ones back home) so I am going to take off the birthday sentiment and move the red embellies back to the bottom edge as you can see in this second picture!

Please head over to the Stars and Stamps blog to and check out InLinkz so you can see some other wonderful cards!
