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.

Papertrey Ink Go-To Sentiment Card


This is my second card for the review of Papertrey Inks Make It Monday Video Series. This technique of using sentiments for your card was their very first video and presented by Erin Lincoln. The "take care Feel Better Soon " sentiment is from PTI Think Big Favorites #6 and the "hope you're feeling better" is from PTI Everyday Button Bits. The upper sentiment was purchased from Michael's. The little butterfly is from a Martha Stewart set and the leaves are from Stampin' Up. I made two of these flowers quite a while ago; one was used for a Roses challenge and I never used this little guy so now it's his turn to shine!!

Hope you enjoy my card and your day as well!
Betty
