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.

New Stamps in the House!

I did not make a card today but I did have a thrill when I checked the mailbox. Found an envelope that had come all the way from Australia with a set of border stamps that I won from Annabelle Stamps.
On the back of the package it says "Ink the image and stamp a few times on scrap paper to help prepare your stamp. When happy with the impression begin stamping." Well, I have to tell you, I was happy the the impression from my first stamp with each of these beauties. I had no need whatsoever to "prepare" them -- they are perfect from the word go!
Here's a link to Annabelle's Stamps Challenge Blog but there's a tab there that will take you to their store. Be sure to check out what they have to offer. You might even want to enter the current recipe challenge: 1) border stamp 2) flowers 3)sparkles/gems. I'm thinking that my border stamps arrived at just the right time!
See ya later,
