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.

Merry Monday on Festive Friday!


What a task this was, to get a good picture of an (almost) all white card with embossing and an iridescent ribbon! I think I finally got it, after taking numerous photos in different locations. This is my entry for Merry Monday Sketch 12, and here is the sketch:

I embossed my paper with a Cuttlebug embossing folder, Winter Wonderland; this is one of a set of six folders. The stamp is from Stampin' Up and the ribbon is from Michael's. Hope it puts you in a festive mood and makes you want to play in this challenge. Click on the link to get great inspiration from the design team.

This is my second post today; please see my previous post to take a trip to the Monday Market, where I sell cards to raise funds to benefit a home for older boys in our area.

edited to add: Well, I just realized that I totally messed up the title of this post. I had meant to save it to post tomorrow morning (Friday!) then got distracted and decided to do a second post today. Oh well...........
