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 Pair of Pears



Here's my card for the challenge at Annabelle Stamps. The image of the pears printed out after I cleaned my printer heads (or something similar -- it was a while back!!). This is the second time I've been lucky enough to get this image and I just had to use them on a card both times!

Annabelle's challenge this week is a color challenge. My colors may be a bit off but hopefully, close enough!
Bye for now,
Betty
