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.

Color, Sketch, and Image Challenges


I think this might be one of my favorite CAS cards. The sketch is from Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #82. Colors are from the Curtain Call Challenge 39 -- kraft, white, certainly celery and wild wasabi. Don't you just love this inspiration picture -- so clean and pure!

My image is from MyGrafico. I made this card for their Challenge #57 but when I went back and read the fine print (on my laptop) I realized that it should have had piecing, not piercing! I think maybe it's time to go out and get some reading glasses! Maybe next time I see you, I'll be a little more "focused"!!
