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.

Two Cards -- Two Challenges

I have two more cards to share with you. Both are made with digital images from Beccy's Place. Click on the link to find out more about her September challenge.

This pre-colored image from Beccy inspired my fall looking birthday card. From reading blogs, it sounds as though some of you are beginning to experience some welcomed cooler weather. Yay! The sentiment stamp is from Taylored Expressions' set, Rest and Renewal.  The sketch is from Card Positioning Systems, #282.

I decided to give the Repeat Impressions Sketch S512 at The House That Stamps Built blog another chance. I managed to get in all the required elements this time!

Both of these cards will be donated to my church. We give out birthday cards to church folks each month. I think that especially the fall card will be perfect for an October birthday but I don't think anyone would turn away a birthday peony either!

Gorgeous cards Betty, well done! I think it's a lovely idea to send cards out to all the people in your congregation and I'm sure they will love hand-made ones.
