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.

Inchie Sketch


Hello all! I've been pretty bummed out by the prednisone I've been taking for my asthma flare up but did make a card this evening. It is sweet and simple, quick and easy! I used a sketch from the inchie inklings at Ellen Hutson's website. I also wanted to enter this in the Just Us Girls challenge to use dry embossing. I embossed the ivory panel with a Sizzix embossing folder and sponged on a little Close to Cocoa. It looks a little messy on the photo but accents the embossing slightly and helps it to stand out. DP is Basic Grey Origins; stamps from Inkadinkadoo and Stampin' Up.

I like your idea here to use inchies, so pretty! Sorry about your meds, Prednizone is helpful, but not the side effects. Hope you feel better soon. Thanks for hopping by this weekend!
Have a happy Memorial Day!
