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.

Deck the Halls


I have one more Christmas card made, my friends!! The sketch is from Christmas Card Challenges, Week #7 (see sketch below) and the color combo is from Just Us Girls 67 to use aqua, coral, and green. The pine tree branch is from Flourishes, All That Glitters and the digital stamp is from MelJens Designs -- one of the images I won recently! The background was done with a Cuttlebug embossing folder, one of the Winter Wonderland set.
It's colder today and we've got a drizzling rain; someone's supposed to come look at the house this afternoon; hope the weather doesn't deter them!
