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.

Out on a Limb


This is my card for the Jolly Holiday Greetings Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. We had a set of these bird ornaments when I was a kid and they were always my favorites -- the first thing I would grab to put on the Christmas tree. They didn't all survive but I still have one that holds a place of honor on my tree each year. So this particular stamp was the first thing that caught my eye in this set by Flourishes, All That Glitters. The inside sentiment is from Gina K. Designs, Festive Frame, illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger. My stack of Christmas cards is getting larger, I'm pleased to say. Dare I hope that I can send each person on my list a unique card this year???? We'll see!

Betty,
This is such a great card! I love the glittery birdy and the white glitter paper. I'm sure you will do just fine on your cards this year. I remember when you started way back in Feb or March. I thought it was too soon now I'm wondering if I should have started then. LOL
