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.

Two Challenges


This is my second post today and I have two cards for two challenges so will share them alphabetically, by challenge name!! Is that organized, or what???

First, is the AnnaBelle Stamps challenge to Say It With .....  Background Stamps. I was inspired ty the two Sue's on the design team. Sue K. had a fantastic, funky design and I loved Sue W's choice of colors.


Next up is Merry Monday -- this is a sketch challenge and here's my offering .........


Come play with Lesley at Merry Monday! You have until midnight on Saturday to enter your creation! (and you will have one Christmas card done early!!)

I like these both, that black,white and yellow really looks eye catching love that color combo.
The tree on the Christmas one is just too, too cute!

Lesley said...

Thanks for your amazing support Betty!! Your cards are wonderful, love the colours in the first! Your Christmas card is just perfect, I think the three little baubles at the bottom really complete the card!
