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.

Flowers and Bees


I have a bright and happy card to show you tonight (we've been needing a little bright and happy around here!). The sketch is from Midnight Madness which I made horizontally rather than vertically. The image is one I won from MelJen's Designs -- you've got to check them out -- soooooo cute!! Patterned paper is from Basic Grey's June Bug Paper Pad. I made the embellies with little pieces of ribbon and brads.

Found a neat tutorial at the OWH Stars and Stamps blog and made a card that I entered in the Sketch Challenge at stampTV. Check out my card here.
