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.

Mo's Digital Challenge 63

The theme for Mo's Digital Challenge #63 is "Bless the Beast and the Children" so I have included one child and an animal on my card. I used colored pencils to color this sweet image by Mo. I had less trouble than usual with smearing as I colored this image but Cec from Phindy's Place has put me on to a type of paper that does much better when using HP ink. I have some on order and if it works for me, I'll be sure to let you all know!
