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.

Love, Love, Love


This valentine was made for two challenges: Annabelle Stamps say it in Red and White; and Speedy's Friends -- to use hearts on your card.

The patterned paper was made with Annabelle Stamps Backgrounds by Design2 and the heart images come from GTC's Crafty Corner. I also used some sheer red ribbon that I found at Big Lots.

Wanted to say Congrats! to a friend of mine, Mary Anne, who was a winner recently at Speedy the Cat's Friends Blog Hop! Way to go, Mary Anne!! Won't you have fun getting a sneak peek at one of the coming new releases!
