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.

Girl with Watering Can

Here's another card made with a silhouette stamp from Flourishes Sweet Days of Summer. I do like these silhouette stamps -- I added a bit of pink to the flowers on this one. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink, Gracious Vases.

We enjoyed playing Mexican Train with friends last night. Out of 12 players, I had the 11th highest score. Now, in some games that would be a good thing, but in Mexican Train -- not so much!! Still, it was a fun evening and the food was extra good.

If you're snowed in, hoping you have electricity, and if not, soon. Take care all.
