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 Father's Day Card




This is my offering for the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches #33. Here is the sketch that I used for the layout of my card....


I made this card for a friend at church and the inspiration for the card came from scripture -- chapter one of Psalms speaks of a righteous man who is "like a tree firmly planted by streams of water. Which yields its fruit in its season, And its leaf does not wither; and in whatever he does, he prospers." Fathers need both the righteousness of the Lord and the wisdom of the Lord as they raise their families to love and follow God.

Papers are from a pack by My Minds Eye, stamp is from Stampin' Up and I used a Cuttlebug Branches embossing folder to emboss the rusty colored panel from SU and a Spellbinders die to cut out the name which was computer generated.

Will be back tomorrow with another one that will look similar because it's made with the same materials -- just a different layout!
