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.

Paper and Such Sketch Challenge

I found a really terrific sketch challenge this week thanks to my blogging friend, Patti P. and knew I had to make a card with their sketch. Here is the link: Paper and Such. You have until midnight, August 6 to play.
and here is my card...The flower is from Stampin' Up's set True Friends; card base and frame for the image is Gina K. Designs PL Ocean Mist; the ribbon is a former "In Color" from Stampin' Up. I made two cards yesterday -- I posted the first one yesterday which was made with upbeat, bright, happy colors; then this one which is soothing and tranquil; and I love them both!

We took a trip to Guadalajara on Monday to the Costco store; a friend showed us a different route and we truly enjoyed the trip because it was such a scenic drive. Passed through several interesting villages but unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me. Will be sure to take it next time because there were numerous photo ops that I'd love to share with you. We passed by a candy factory that had the neatest mural painted on the outside wall showing the candy making process -- so sorry I didn't get a picture of that one!

Wishes for a terrific day,

Betty, how fast you are...isn't this a great sketch to have in our stash? I love this SU flower and is such a soft elegant card. So glad you like this site. I told Rick your suggestion about his cleaning and us playing and for some reason, he isn't as excited as I am, lol. Bet your house is spotless and doesn't need a bit of cleaning. Have a great day.
