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.

Flowers and Easter

I'm back with my other favorite stamp from Gina K. Design's StampTV kit, Spring Mix (an oldie but a goodie!) I colored the stamp with my markers and touched up the edges with a darker shade of pink. My printer has stopped accepting white cardstock (jams every time!) so I've started printing on regular printer paper and cutting out the regular paper on top of the white cardstock and adhering them together. Guess that's called "making do"!

We are off to Guadalajara this morning to make a Costco run so this will be a quick post. Did want to show you some Easter cards that I made for a friend's grandkids.

Phooey re printer.

Betty, your card is so pretty! I am a sucker for pink, but don't create with it as often as I should! Thanks for sharing! Hate to hear about your printer. I got lucky with an inexpensive HP that has a top feeder - it will take nearly all weight CS through. Good luck! Hugs...

Love that set too! Your card is so lovely....and loving those you did for your friend ...maybe the cardstock is too thick for printer...I can only print on 80lb cardstock ...
