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.

Another Day, Another CPS Sketch!

The sun is rising on another beautiful day at Lake Chapala, Mexico (photo courtsey of husband Larry, who is always up earlier than I am in the mornings!) The birds are stopping by for a drink at the sugar water feeders and I can hear lots of chirping! If I were outside I'd be able to hear the "whoosh-ing" of hummingbird wings, too!

I have also completed another sketch for the 5th Anniversary of Card Positioning Systems (Day 4).

This looks like a card but it's actually a front cover for another one of the little notebooks that I made a couple of posts ago! I just haven't been back to Sorianna to purchase more of the notebooks yet. I used a patterned paper pack from the Paper Studio, Poteeka Souffle w/glitter. The stamp of the bird is one I got from the $1 bin at Michaels and the word "joy" is part of a sentiment stamp from Papertrey Ink's Everyday Button Bits. They are stamped with Stampin' Up's Taken With Teal ink and the sponging is with the same innk. I combined two ribbons and some pretty brads to finish it off.

Hoping you all have a wonderful day,
