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

I was so excited to see my envelope in the mailbox from Annabelle Stamps. It had come all the way from Australia and I was right there to welcome it to its new home!
The set I had ordered is All Things Grow and you can see it here on the right. Aren't those grasses and butterflies gorgeous???? Nature at its best!

I was eager to use this lovely set and Annabelle Stamps had just posted the February Sketch -- how convenient! I only used two of the stamps in this set for my card so I've got lots more to try out -- look out for more to come!
