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.

TMITA Monochromatic


I didn't get to play with this cute little guy from Paper Cupcakes last week so here he is on my monochromatic green card for the challenge at There's Magic in the Air this week. The image is colored with pencils, blended with baby oil and the sentiment is Stampin Up's Boho Backgrounds. Ribbon is from Michael's. I'm so glad to be feeling better today -- spent 6 hours ine the ER yesterday with a horrible stomach virus. Didn't think I'd ever stop throwing up!! Bless his heart, my DH told me a while back that when he promised to love me in sickness and in health, he didn't realize how much sickness there would be! But he's stuck with me for over 30 years now!
