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.

Annabelle Stamps Challenge

Friends, I must admit, I started this card for a challenge at Stretch 'N Bubbles but it took off on another trail than the one I started down and we found ourselves at the Annabelle Stamps Challenge in Australia!! What a detour; but we will return to Stretch 'N Bubbles later! I just love the colors of teal, turquoise and black -- and just look at the ribbon -- it is a sheer turquoise and it makes me giddy! I got a six yard (almost 5.5 meter) roll at The Dollar Tree for $1 (not hard to guess, right?) and I have to go back to see if they have any more -- love it! Stamps are from a set called Flourishes by Inkadinkado. This is the first time I've used so many of them together. I think it would normally be too busy, but because of the softness of the turquoise, it really works (for me, and I hope for you too!) Sentiment is from Stampin' Up, Kind Thanks. Hope you'll come back and visit me again!!
