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 Little Note



My card today was made following  Sketch #23 from Freshly Made Sketches. My stamps are from a set by Clear Art Stamps -- there are some of the cutest little birds in this set. Papers are from My Mind's Eye and cardstock from Papertrey Ink and Gina K. Designs. I pleated some sheer ribbon and added a bow with a little tag attached.

I have another picture of our little houseguest. We really should be whipped for making him work so hard to earn his keep!

See you later,
Betty

Betty,
These two are just adorable, I figure which is cuter the card with all those wonderful birds or this little guy looking up at us. LOL. Love the way you pleated the ribbon I hope it was easier the second time around.
