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.

I'm Back

First of all, I want to thank those of you who have checked in to see where I've been. My asthma flared up last week and it sapped all my mojo! Hopefully, I'll be back in the mood to have fun with my stamps and papers tomorrow -- it's been too long since I made a card!

I'm posting a picture tonight of a card I made last week but never got posted. All the paper used is from my favorite (still!) paper pack, Simply Delightful by My Mind's Eye. I cut out the flower image from one of the papers and added a couple of extra leaves. The circles were cut in my Nesties and the stamp is from Stampin' Up. I love the sheer brown ribbon used for the bow.

Bye for now .... Betty

Betty I am sorry to hear you have been having trouble with your asthma. I also have asthma and I know it isn't fun when it acts up. Great card. I hope you are feeling like stamping again very soon. Take care.
