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.

Tons of Love


I made this card to send to Operation Write Home and I followed these challenges:
The Color Dare 76 -- Old Olive, Rose Red, Elegant Eggplant and Not Quite Navy
There's Magic in the Air -- Sketch challenge and using digital image from Paper Cupcakes.
Used my Nestablilities Ovals for the computer generated greeting and Martha Stewart's Double Loops border punch. Added a little paper piercing and a heart button and this sweet little elephant is ready to carry mom or dad's love back to their little sweetheart at home!
