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.

The challenge at Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday is "Lace and Scallops". Since this week is New Release Week, the winner will win the entire March new released stamp sets. Can't get any better than that! Actually, there's more than one way to win the March New Releases. Check out the blogs at flourishes.org and get a a card entered in one or all of the challenges.

For the lace and scallops, I used a Martha Stewart punch that not only looks like lace, it is scalloped! I stamped my image and sentiment and then cut them out with a Nestabilities Oval Scalloped die. A lady at the Monday Market where I sell my cards requested a thank you card in Spanish.

By the way, I took pictures at the market this week but failed to get a picture of my own table!! So, next week I hope to be able to share a little bit of how I spend my Monday mornings!
