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.

Bee Happy


Hello friends! The sun is shining today -- very appropriate for my card. The bee image is from Stretch 'N Bubbles -- I think she's taking a snooze out there in the sunshine. She's about to wake up though, and fly over to the Moxie Fab site for their sketch challenge and to stampTV for Sharri's Blast From the Past challenge to use glitter. Card base is Whisper White and the yellow layer is from my 12x12 paper stash -- it was so very bright that I had to pull out a layer of vellum to tone it down a bit! The Real Red layer was cut out with nesties and the sentiment is computer generated. A few little light blue rhinestones in the corner to match the "thought bubble" makes it complete!
