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.

Layers, Layers, I Love Layers!




The layout for my card comes from The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge; here's their sketch:

I will also be entering this card in the Annabelle Stamps Challenge - Say It With .... Anything Goes


The papers on my card are from Basic Gray and stamps are from Annabelle Stamps, All Things Grow.
I saw cards created with this sketch on several of my friends' blogs and thought I'd jump on the bandwagon too. Still working on those masculine birthday cards!

P.S. The bird from yesterday's post is an oriole -- possibly an altimira oriole or a baltimore oriole.
