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.

Congratulations Graduate!


Thanks to Vicki Dutcher who posted a graduation card on her blog today and to the ladies at Just Us Girls who threw out a Technique Challenge to make a pocket card, I have made a card for my husband's oldest grandson, who is graduating from high school this month. I recycled his graduation invitation to make the card. Be sure to check out Vicki's card and see the happy little surprise inside!
