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.

With Sympathy

I made this card for the Repeat Impressions Sketch J1211. I created the background with Annabelle Stamps Backgrounds By Design2, using Stampin' Up Soft Sky ink and Tim Holtz Pumice Stone Distressed ink. The image and sentiment are from Annabelle Stamps, Thoughtful Stems. Cutting was done with Nestabilities and a punched butterfly and colored pearls were the final elements. Hope you enjoyed stopping by!

Betty,
Everyone is commenting on the card and it is so lovely, I love the color combo and your BG stamps. I need to ask about that ribbon! It looks so shinny and quilted. I must be beautiful in person.
