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.

New Stamps




These two "signature" stamps were waiting for me when I arrived home from my trip to Mexico. I had ordered them from a seller on ebay. Aren't they just gorgeous -- can't wait to start adding them to the backs of my cards. The seller's name is loongchai74 on ebay. Check out his store -- he can make your stamp look most any way you want it to. I just used his standard stamps though and love them.
The card above was made for Nina Brackett's sketch challenge at Card Patterns. The hydrangea is a digi image from Nina that she designed in honor of her grandmother.
