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.

Valentine Treats



Hi! Just wanted to let you know what I've been working on today. Valentine's Day is coming up and with my daughter going back to work, I volunteered to make the treat holders for Ashton's kindergarten class and for Brianna's day care class. I've burned out on traditional Valentine themes (having done a number of challenges lately) so I decided to make non-traditonal valentines. Looked through my freebie folders and found lots of fantastic animals. I failed to write down the source as I was pulling them but tried to go back and find them again so I could give credit. I may have missed some; I'm truly sorry if I did. Here's all that I could find -- Amerigo Mundi, Cuddlebeez, GTC's Crafty Corner, Pam LeFores, Pink's Poetic Scraps, and Scrappers Emporium. They were already colored so I cut my time considerably!! Thanks, also to Splitcoast Stampers for the tutorial! By the way, the treat inside is a little bag of Zoo Animals Fruit Snacks -- how appropriate is that with the animal theme of the holders!! Betty

These are adorable, Betty. And how appropriate with the animal fruit snacks. I just love making these little holders to give away! Thanks for commenting on my win over at Flourishes. I was surprised but thrilled to win. Especially the fruit challenge. I did all the challenges and that was the card I liked the least. LOL! Anyway, thanks so much for stopping by.
