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 Merry Monday Christmas Card



Lesley has a really neat sketch for the Merry Monday challenge this week. Here it is.....


My card used a different shape so there was more coverage on the front of the card but I think that you can still see the sketch. The papers are from an old Stampin' Up Christmas pack and the image is from the Flourishes set Doves and Holly. I cut out the uppermost holly leaf so that the Spellbinders die was able to cut out the image. One more Christmas card for my collection!

Nice job with the sketch. I love the unique shape of the top two layers. Lovely paper too. I love the way the holly leaf sticks out from the main image! Thanks for taking part in the Merry Monday challenge!

I don't think I've ever seen that stamp before. It's a beautiful Christmas stamp and fits this sketch perfectly! Thanks, Betty, for sharing it with us at Merry Monday!
