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.

Thinking of You



My sister from Mississippi has been visiting for the past week so we've been busy going here and there and everywhere! No time to make cards......

Unfortunately, all good visits have to come to and end and we took Barbara to the airport this morning. I saw the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #57 and totally love this card! Thanks for the sketch, LeAnne -- it is a fabulous one!


If you'd like to play along, get your card done by Monday, October 22, at 12 Noon PDT and upload to the Freshly Made Sketches blogsite. Just click on the link above.

Will be sharing some pictures of our excursions out and about in the Chapala area in the next few days. We saw some very interesting sights!

My daughter posted the following picture of my grandkids on Facebook the other day. Thought I'd share it with you. Ashton is 8 and Brianna is 5, although they have birthdays coming up in November and December.


Adios,
Betty
