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.

A Couple of Cards


I have two cards to share with you this evening that were inspired by the Merry Monday Sketch 36. This first one follows the sketch and will be entered into the challenge at Lesley's blog, Always Playing With Paper.


Here's the sketch.......


That star really caught my eye and inspired the following card,



Thanks, Lesley, for the wonderful sketches you provide each week!
