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.

A Look of Nature

Good Morning All! I surely do hope that Blogger is more cooperative today than it was yesterday. I had a lot of trouble getting to blog posts and once there, more problems leaving comments.

My card this morning uses Repeat Impressions Sketch J1112 --

I will also enter the Dutch Dare Challenge -- For the Boys. I need to get some masculine birthday cards made for folks in the church this next month so this challenge was perfect!

I used Annabelle Stamps, All Things Grow and cut the sentiment with a Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio die. The green background panel was embossed with a Cuttlebug Folder, Forest Branches, and the border was done with Martha Stewart's Grass border punch. The border is adhered to the inside bottom edge of the card and the front panel is cut a little shorter than the rest of the card.

Thanks for coming by,

This is great for a masculine card!
That is kinda funny that you mentioned that, I just went through my stash of cards looking for some boy birthday cards and realized I'm really low. I think Adrieene took all my little boy cards back to NY with her. I'd better get busy with some more I need 3 for this month.
