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.

All Things Grow with Annabelle Stamps

I have another card made with my new stamp set from Annabelle Stamps. Made this one just to be making it -- no special challenge (I'm a little tired of "heart" challenges!) I bought a kitchen sponge and cut it up to replace my "real sponges" but I think a trip to the storage facility is in order. The kitchen sponge is better than nothing but doesn't come close to the real thing! We've been needing to reaarange in there since more of my MIL's things were added so tomorrow is going to be the day. Hopefully, "my day will be a special one" and I can find what I'm looking for -- may even bring home some of my designer paper if I can find it. May your day be a special one, too!!
