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.

Joyful Congrats

Our granddaughter will be getting her license to drive in February and I've made this card in anticipation of celebrating with her. My blogging friend Mary Anne has said that she wants to make more cards with someone in mind rather than just to enter in a challenge and I think she's got a good idea there! I will be entering my granddaughter's card in the following challenges:

Speedy's Friends -- to use something new; the cuttlebug folder Tiny Bubbles and the ribbon are new and were given to me by a wonderful friend.
Sassy Cheryl's -- to use the color blue (the image is from Sassy Cheryl's -- isn't it joyful?!)

Thanks for stopping by,
Betty

Getting that drivers license is a mixed emotion time. Happy when they pass it, but as parents we never stop worrying. You chose the perfect image to share that spinning, twirling, dancing feeling! What a good G-mom!
