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.

Wedding Cards


I had someone ask me today if I could make some wedding cards. I did one recently for a friend at church but because I didn't have any wedding stamps, I printed a piece of free clip art for my card. So, while I was in the States, I bought a wedding set from Inkadinkado and made this card with it. I really do like this bride and groom stamp!

The sketch I used is from Freshly Made Sketches. I missed the deadline for the challenge but was certainly thankful for the sketch to get me started on the card. Tools used were a Cuttlebug embossing folder (Paper Lace II - a set of 4), a Martha Stewart punch and Spellbinders dies.

Wish I could report wonderful sales of the Father's Day cards, but only sold one of them. Oh well, maybe I can change them into birthday cards......
