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 Wedding Card for Flourishes



Thanks, Theresa, for letting me know that Timeless Tuesday at Flourishes is perfect for wedding cards. I posted one yesterday but was a day too soon for the challenge. Since I had been asked to make several weddings cards, it was no trouble at all to make another one for the Flourishes challenge -- a white card with lace and/or pearls.

Stamps are from the Inkadinkado "Wedding" set that I purchased when I was in the States. The sentiment is a Spanish set from Stampin' Up that I bought used from someone here who was moving back to the States.

The Cuttlebug embossing folder is called Swirls with Waves. I think that it gives the impression of movement, like our bridal couple is dancing! Hope you enjoyed it!
