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.

Pulled Out My Colored Pencils


Hey stamping friends! Does this look more like a normal post? It looks a little bit like a card but since I don't have all my "stuff" it's just a piece of card stock with three stamped images from Layers of Color. My friend, Melisa Waldorf, let me stamp some of her images when she and I were stamping (mostly talking????) one day. I really enjoyed pulling out the colored pencils and baby oil and coloring a bit today!
I have a worker outside installing a tv satellite system (provided by the owner of the house -- yippee!, 'cause it ain't cheap!) So, I'm hoping that I'll be able to watch Dancing with the Stars on Monday evening!
Later, Betty

Betty, this is beautiful!! I'm so glad you're having some healing creative time! I stamped this border twice and the rabbit border, colored them and put the three on a card, simple and gorgeous! Don't you just LOVE coloring?! I've loved it since I was a child!

Blessings and prayers to you, Betty!
