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.

Great is Thy Faithfulness



I made this card with the 100th sketch from Waltzingmouse Makes Blog. I don't have any of their products so I'll not be entering the challenge, but I enjoyed the sketch very much!

I will be entering my card at Word Art Wednesday. They post a free piece of word art each week but you can enter any card with an inspirational or encouraging theme. My card was made with a scripture stamp from a set by Taylored Expressions called Rest and Renewal.  This set has wonderful stamps from scripture.


Card stock is from Stampin' Up, patterned papers from a scrapbook kit called Great Outdoors. The little glassy embellishment is from Prima and has musical notes on it; I've been singing "Great Is Thy Faithfulness" all day!!

Hope you all had a wonderful day -- I did!
