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 Manly Birthday

Here's a birthday card I was asked to make. I started out with sketch #60 from Freshly Made Sketches but then I went off on a tangent, as you can see from the sketch below. Oh well, I got inspiration from it though!

I was supposed to have gotten a crown this morning (for my tooth that had the root canal earlier this week) but when I arrived at the dental office I found that they had no electricity. So, I guess you can say that I got a reprieve until next week!

We'll be playing Mexican Train with our group later this afternoon and am looking forward to that. I'll probably have a much better time without having had dental work done this morning!!

It's getting on toward noon -- we found a Red Baron pepperoni pizza in the frozen food case at Wal-Mart today so that's our treat for lunch. Doesn't sound like much but it's a little bit hard to find a good pizza here in Chapala and Wal-Mart doesn't always have the Red Barons. We add onion, bell pepper and mushrooms to make it extra special!!

Mmmm....pizza. Haven't had any 'good' food since August 7th! Lol... Your card is beautiful, and so perfect for a man-card. Those are so hard to make! Great job, my friend, and enjoy that pizza!
