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 Blooming Birthday Challenge

This is my second post today. I was able to complete the second birthday challenge for Annabelle Stamps. My blooms were created with a Spellbinders Impressability which I used as a stencil with SU Brocade Blue. The textured ivory cardstock gives a special look to the stenciled design. My images (grasses and butterflies) come from Annabelle's set, All Things Grow. I think I had forgotten how much I love this set. The sentiment  is from Sentimental Bluebells; such a pretty cursive font!

If you haven't gotten started on these challenges, you should -- enter all three and you get a chance to win their entire latest release and Annabelle has wonderful stamps! You have until Sept. 14 to complete all three so there's plenty of time!
