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.

"Paint" by Number

I made this card for Papertrey Ink's "Paint" by Number Challenge. Aren't the colors yummy? They give you the sketch and a color pallette that is based on the first letter of your name. The play on words is to announce that PTI will be releasing a set of acrylic paints in all of their colors. And they will be packaged in the cutest little paint cans you have ever seen -- I'm a sucker for all things miniature!! Go on over and help them celebrate!!
