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.

Birthday Cards

Over the next few days I'll be sharing some cards with you that I made for a friend from church. This first card was made for a young man who is now a Senior in college and guess what he loves to do? If you said "fishing" you are correct!! This card was made with a Scrapbook Kit called The Great Outdoors. The sentiment stamp is from Gina K. Designs, Inside and Out.

This card is for a young lady who is studying to become a teacher. The large image is Wild at Heart from Gina K. Designs. It was stamped on white card stock in Stampin' Up Purely Pomegranate ink; the card base is the same color card stock and the ribbon is Purely Pomegranate too (a former In Color). The sentiment is computer generated and cut out with Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio. I did stamp the image twice and cut out the flowers to be popped up on the card. Maybe you can see that a little better with this next picture.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Very nice cards. The young man will love his fishing card. The young lady will certainly feel blessed to get such a pretty floral card.
