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.

Button Brads


Okay, I felt sorry for the big brads that I trashed in yesterday's post so I designed a card especially for them!! Kept the color combo of Chocolate, Blue and Pink from the challenge at Annabelle Stamps (after all the brads are brown, blue and pink -- it was a no brainer!)and added an image from Annabelle Stamps set titled Thoughtful Stems. DP is from My Mind's Eye paper pack titled Simply Delightful. Sponged with SU ink.

Hope all of your football fans are enjoying the game!

Your crackin' me up! Glad you used those big brads! I love the sponged background. Well I'm slowly catchin' up with your blog my friend. It may take me a few days. I hope all is well. Fred ended up hurting his back and I had to do ALOT more than I would have wanted to with the move, ha. I spent last weekend cleaning the rental and we are OUT!! Our first week and 1/2 in the new house has been wonderful, except for the 24 hours we lost one of the cats. I just knew he was gone for good. Then he finally showed back up. I was so relieved, because I didn't want to break the news to Nicole. This weekend I'm doing a yard sale at a co-workers house and hoping to make some extra spending money. I hope all is well my friend! Miss seeing you!
