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.

Have You Hugged An Egg Today?


Here's my card for Vicki's Sketch Challenge over at stampTV. The image is by Nina from There's Magic in the Air. I printed the image last night and after I colored it this morning, I had a "senior moment"!! Sue Walsh who hosted the challenge at TMITA wanted us to use this image on an Easter basket and guess who forgot all about it ------ yep, Moi! As you can see, this ain't no Easter basket!! But it did make a really cute card and it does match the pop-open box that I made last week for my grandson. Any hoo, sorry Sue! And thanks to Vicki for the sketch!
