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.

Boys' Birthdays



This card is for a young man named Devin. Because he is going to be four years old, I decided to give him a little something special on the inside of his card!


The sentiment is computer generated on a piece of white card stock, using an outlined font, which I colored with my Sharpies. Then I stamped the cars and adhered the card stock to the fun foam and cut with a Sizzix die.

My second card is made with the same stamp set -- unfortunately I didn't write down the name of it but I got it on sale at Michael's quite a while ago for about $1.50. This is the first time I've inked it up!!


I love the bright red, white and blue of this one. It is for Adam's 1st birthday, so I don't know that he will pay any attention to his card, but hopefully his mother will take notice!!

Take care all,
Betty

Perfect little set for the younger boys! As Theresa said, quite clever of you add that puzzle!

Thanks for the blog comments. I met such a nice group of ladies at the OWH event. As for the babies, Dee's turn will come, and we just realized that there are 3 sets of twins, 2 generations ago. They say they skip one, so it may not be so far fetched when the time comes! LOL!

Betty,
Love the puzzle idea and the cards are very cute. It's so hard to do little boy cards, you did them perfect.
