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.

Kind Thanks in Blue


Operation Write Home's Stars and Stamps blog has the sketch that I used for this card. Stampin' Up designer papers were used along with a sentiment stamp from the Thank You Kindly set. The butterfly and dragonfly stamps are a set from Michael's $1 bin. I will also enter this card in the challenge at Mark's Finest Papers. Speedy the Cat's Friends wants us to make a Thank You card.
