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.

Hey there, Chickadee

My card today was made for the following challenges:
1. Annabelle Stamps -- say it with "a bow"
2. EmbellishMagazine -- color challenge Seafoam, Peach, Cream, Kraft; and using a quirky, cutesy, clean style
3. Clean and Simple Sketch Challenge 104
I used stamps from Stampin' Up (Happiness) and Papertrey Ink (Everyday Button Bits).
Hope you enjoy my card as well as the soldier who will use it to send home to a family member or loved one. Guess that tells you that it will be going to Operation Write Home.

Bye for now,
