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.

Watercolor Inchies



Got my card made today for Freshly Made Sketches #59. I watercolored the small panels and then stamped an Inkadinkado Flourishes  stamp with Momento Tuxedo Black ink. I didn't get the best picture -- the embossed black sentiment didn't like the flash but it's a very overcast day here (quite unusual for our area) and I had to use the flash.

Remember to set your clocks back tonight. We changed our clocks last Saturday here in Mexico.

Love your card Betty. We remembered to set our clocks back but our dog didn't care. She was up and ready to go out at the same time.
