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.

Birthday Card NOT for a Guy!




These are the challenges I'm entering with this card --
Eat, Sleep, Stamp Sketch Challenge
stampTV's Friday Free For All -- use at least one stamped flower and two shapes
Paper Play Challenges -- use lovely lace
Lily Pad Card Challenges -- use patterned paper

My patterned paper is from an old Stampin' Up designer paper pack.
Stamps that I used are Gina K. Designs, You Are Not Alone and Fanciful Tags
  also, Papertrey Ink's Background Basics: Gingham
Spellbinders Dies to cut the circles and sentiment
Pearls from Michaels and Lace from Melisa Waldorf (thanks, gf!)

Hope you come back again,
Betty
