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.

Make Mine Pink


I was in the process of making this little box with a template from Lauren Meador of My Time Made Easy for the Just Us Girls Challenge when I was delightfully interrupted by a phone call from online friends Kerrie from Australia, Connie from Canada and Olga from Virginia. We just had a wonderful time laughing and joking with one another. All three are close friends whom I've never met personally but love just the same! Do any of you use Skype and your computer to talk to long distance friends? I have a hard time with reception in the area were I live but I can hear everyone else and I type a message in from time to time. When I took my laptop outside they were able to hear me for a little while but the deer were looking at me funny! Anyway, I did finish up the little box and will enter it in the JUGS26 challenge to use a template and Gina K's Inspire Challenge on stampTV to "Make it Pink".

So pretty in all of it's pink glory! Great job on both the challenges. I love that spotty organza ribbon. It adds such a soft finish to your template. Sam.
