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's 2 B's Birthday Challenge

Here is my card for the third and final challenge at Annabelle Stamps. Decided I'd better do a birthday themed card since that IS the occasion! I have used Annabelle's stamp set Sentimental Bluebells for each of my cards and there is not a bluebell in sight on any of them!! But at least I got the "sentiment" part -- really like the font on these sentiments and they stamp so beautifully. We were challenged to use two embellishments that start with the letter B (for birthday, don't 'cha know!). Unfortunately, I had used two Butterflies yesterday, so had to take another direction. Decided to go the Buttons and Bows route! The ole favorite Swiss Dots embossing folder came out for this one and also a piece of printed paper that I've been hoarding.

I'll make this post short and sweet so you can leave here and get started on your challenge cards -- help us say "Happy Birthday" to Annabelle Stamps!
