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.

Gotta Cool Down!


Patti Nelson has issued the challenge at There's Magic in the Air to make a card using a Paper Cupcakes image and be inspired by the phrase "Dog Days of Summer".
Growing up in Mississippi (we didn't have ac until I was a teenager), during the "dog days of summer" all I could think of was cooling down! Boy, it was hot and humid there. What could be better than going ice skating? My image is called "Skating By" and I've got another Christmas card made!!
Of course, I never went ice skating in Mississippi (or never have, for that matter) but this little guy sure does seem to be having fun!

Hope your week has a bit of fun too,
Betty
