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.

Timeless Tuesday at Flourishes

This is my card for Makiko Jones' challenge at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #194 which is to use a Flourishes silhouette. Happily I had one of their silhouette stamps -- Sweet Dreams of Summer. This set has such sweet images; there's also one of kids playing in a water sprinkler and a little girl reading a book under a tree.

I stamped with Not Quite Navy and this little girl tending the flowers makes me think of my friend Martha tending the plant that she gave me this week. Planting it as a cutting, watering it, watching it grow, and then loading it up in the truck and bringing it to me once it was "big enough to travel"!!

I'd like to share the link again for the Hope House Boys since it didn't work properly last time. You'll enjoy "meeting" some of the boys who call Hope House their home! Click here.
