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.

Flourishes Christmas Spirit Challenge

At the Flourishes Christmas Spirit Challenge we are to recycle something we received at Christmas. My recycled element is the little metal "Joy" that is featured on the front of my card. We are also to use Flourishes stamps. Since the outside of my card has no stamping at all, I decided to stamp on the inside. Stamps are from Flourishes, Christmas Music. I have also used Nestabilities to frame the sentiment from the same set and to have a place to sign our names. Check out this monthly Flourishes challenge and if you enter you will have a chance to win one of their Christmas stamp sets -- my favorite of their Christmas sets is All That Glitters!

This is lovely, the joy sentiment is great. Your music notes on the inside is a great idea.

Clever choice to use the stamps on the inside! Great card!

Diana Queen said...

This is brilliant Betty...the stamping on the inside is so pretty and I love your little box for writing a note. I'm so bad to not embellish the inside of cards, so I love this!

Oh wow! It is so beautiful on the inside that I thought is was another card. I'm so jealous that you already have your first Christmas card of the year done! I did order a couple of small, inexpensive Christmas stamps to add to my collection last week. i got them from stampfrancisco. These have a vintage feel to them.
Aren't they so cute!
