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.

Thoughts of Love

Sue McMahon is hosting Color Challenge #6 at the Crafters Digital Art Center that you can find here. She provided this free colored digi image for us to use on our project. I rotated the second image so they would face each other and the sentiment is computer generated "Sending thought of love to you From across the waves". Can you guess that it's another card for Operation Write Home? I like the way it turned out but for some reason it seemed to fight with me all the way from start to completion -- maybe that just means that when it arrives in the proper hands it will be the perfect card that they need! I love Sue's image and she shares her gorgeous inspriation photo with us as well -- come on over, see the beauty and join the challenge!
