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.

The card I am sharing with you today was made for the sketch challenge at stampTV. The image and sentiment are from Gina K. Designs, Take Flight; the designer paper is from Lara's Digi World; and the flowers were a gift from my friend, Melisa. I used two Cuttlebug embossing folders, Swiss Dots and Scroll Works, which you can see just the tiniest bit of along the top and side borders. This was one of my first stamp sets from Gina K. and it's still one of my favorites!
I'll be going to Mississippi tomorrow with my daughter and grandkids so I won't be posting cards for the next few days. I'll try to take a picture or two to share with you though so don't forget to come by!!
