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

My post today is all about Annabelle Stamps. This card combines both their sketch and color challenges since they said it was okay to combine the two. Colors are pink and green and here's the sketch. There's a prize to be won with the sketch challenge -- check out the Design Team's projects -- wonderful!
Annabelle's has a new stamp release coming up, with previews beginning on June 22. Check it out here -- you may be one of four lucky winners by advertising their new release and there will also be more prizes once the previews begin!

My card is an attempt to case my friends Selma Stevenson and Olga Jewell; here are a few more of the details:

Paper: Gina K. Design's Innocent Pink Pure Luxury card stock and Stampin' Up's Wild Wasabi card stock and dp.
Ink: Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose, with addition of Pixie Pink and Pretty In Pink Stampin' Pastels. Wild Wasabi and Garden Green for the leaves.
Tools: Martha Stewart Garden Trellis Punch and Big Shot with Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots embossing folder. Stampin' Up small oval punch for the sentiment.
Stamps: from Gina K. Designs, A Year of Flowers and Pressed Flowers.
Ribbon from Michael's.
