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 In Red, Cream, and Chocolate


What gorgeous colors, Red, Cream and Chocolate -- they make such an elegant card! Hope you can play along this week!

Sorry my post is late -- I've been having some computer probs, but it seems to be working now, thank goodness! Cardbase this week is Very Vanilla by Stampin' Up; also, Real Red and Chocolate Chip. Dp by Basic Grey. I really like this round border stamp from the set Sentimental Bluebells by Annabelle Stamps. The sentiment is from this same set. Nestability dies were used for cutting the circles and a Cuttlebug border die for the corners. I also like this brown ribbon with cream polka dots -- reminds me of the dress Julia Roberts wore to the polo match in the movie Pretty Woman.

I want to thank Andrea for giving me the chance to be guest designer this month. I have been a fan of Annabelle Stamps since being introduced to them by my friend, Sue Walsh and it has been such a joy to join her and the rest of the design team this month. Hope I've inspired you a bit and that you'll begin your collection of Annabelle Stamps -- you'll love 'em!
