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.

thanks For All You Do



My thanks go to Tui who provided the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. My card came together very quickly with her fresh, interesting sketch.


I used stamps from Papertrey Ink, Think Big Favorites 6 and Background Basics: Gingham. My card stock base is also from PTI, Vintage CreamOther card stock and papers are from Stampin' Up. I never know whether to include Stampin' Up colors, because I didn't update with the last color changes, but the ink color is Always Artichoke. A few adhesive faux pearls from Recollections add a little extra pretty.


It's good to be sharing my cards with you again,
Betty
