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.

Posting a Card, then Off to the Market


I have enjoyed being able to make a card to two again, but I must say, I am very pleased with this one. I adapted a sketch from a Sparkle N Sprinkle challenge (didn't use every element of the sketch). The papers are Basic Grey Origins. I layered a sheer yellow ribbon over a yellow grosgrain ribbon to get the right color and then tied my bow with the sheer ribbon. The stamps are from Stampin' Up, three different sets.

We're off to the street market in Ajijic this morning. Every Wednesday this one street is closed to traffic and vendors come and set up their stands and wares. You can find almos everything -- art works, fruits & veggies, shoes, bras, yarns, clothes, movies, music, handmade jewelry and on and on!
