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.

A Cat Needs ....... a slave!


I was so glad to find a stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers in my mailbox today! Had to grab one of those sweet kitties and get him inked up and onto some paper! My card is made for the current challenge at Speedy the Cat's Friends. We are to use the colors red, yellow and orange because the weather here in Texas (and elsewhere) has been sooooo hot! How about grabbing your hottest papers and stamps and join in with this challenge!!
