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.

Soar......


I have a pretty multi-colored dragonfly for you today. This Stampabilities stamp from the Paper Studio was stamped with StazOn Brown ink and colored with chalk, then cut out and popped up with pop dots. Circle base under the dragonfly was sponged with SU Brocade Blue ink. Card base is Stampin' Up's Close to Cocoa and the patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye, Simply Delightful. Sentiment is computer generated and cut out with SU Word Whisper punch. The sketch is from Creative Clear Stamps. Click this link and play in their sketch challenge -- you'll be able to see my card spotlighted for the previous week's challenge!

I was calling this a butterfly but as per the comments, I'm changing it to a dragonfly. At least we know it's flying!!! Thanks, guys!!
