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.

Flowers of Love

Here's the card I made today for Operation Write Home, using their Sketch 51. My photo doesn't capture the true colors but it's as close as I could get! Perhaps the fact that it's been a grey January day has something to do with it!


The sentiment is from Stampin' Up, image is by Just Inklined, and the digi papers are by Szunyo. I've been bemoaning the fact that all of the dp I had before moving to Mexico is in storage and it just occured to me that I have a wealth of digital papers saved to my computer! Had a lot of fun looking through them last night!


Hope you've all been safe and warm today,

Betty
