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 Guy Card and a Visit to Jocotopec




The challenge at Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday 192 this week is to make a birthday card. I am still needing masculine birthday cards for the church so this challenge fit right in with my needs. I can't wait to get my new Pine Cone stamp set that I ordered from Flourishes recently -- I think it will make wonderful masculine birthday cards! Until then, this Stampin' Up set is one I use a lot for "guy" cards.

I have a few pictures to share today from our trip to a nearby village, Jocotopec, while my sister was visiting. We walked along the lovely malicon there -- such beautiful views.

Barbara and I are enjoying a rest too..........


One of the joys that I've found in living in Mexico is that you never know where you'll find poinsettias growing........


These were found in a boat planted with beautiful greenery!
