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.

Digi Image Birthday

I have a birthday card today -- after all, Mark's Finest Papers is having a second birthday! And the challenge from Speedy the Cat's Friends this week is to use polka dots. They did specify that it was okay to use a Swiss Dots embossing folder for your polka dots and that's just what I did -- my favorite folder ever!

The sketch that I used comes from Eat Sleep Stamp (repeat as needed)! Isn't that a great name???Another terrific sketch this week;


My patterned paper is from Basic Grey, Origins. Paper with swiss dots is from K and Company. Other card stock is from Stampin' Up. The digital image is by Lilyboo.

Had a wonderful morning at church and then a group of us went out for lunch at a restaurant called Tango -- my sister will know the restaurant I'm talking about and she'll be wishing she could have gone too! Oh, some others of you may remember too -- I posted a photo on my blog once about a painting that was done on the bathroom door that depicts two goofy looking guys looking over a fence at you (me) sitting there!!

Now, I think it's siesta time!!
