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 Say It With ..... Frames

The challenge at Annabelle Stamps' blog this week is to Say It With Frames. I have used two of Annabelle's stamp sets for my card, Sentimental Bluebells for the main image and sentiment and All Things Grow for the beautiful butterfly. I made my frame with a Spellbinders die and Mellow Moss cardstock from Stampin' Up. The border at the bottom of my card is from a Martha Stewart punch and the "little swirlies" are made with a Cuttlebug corner die and SU Ballet Blue. I colored the image with Koh-I-Noor pencils and added some blue "pearls" and ribbon for a decorative accent.
Hope you'll check out the inspiration cards from the design team and play along with the challenge this week!
