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.

Leaves


The card I made today is for the color challenge at MelJens Designs to use brown, teal and orange and also for the challenge at Speedy the Cat's Friends to make a Harvest theme card. To me a harvest theme means autumn, and autumn means falling leaves. Stamps are from Inkadinkado (large leaf), Studio G (I think -- got it in Michael's $1 bin), and Stamping Up (sentiment).
Hope you're all having a enjoyable weekend!
