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.

Off the Wall Craftiness


I want to thank my friends Mary Anne and Dee Marie for directing me to the Off the Wall Craftiness challenge site. This is my card that includes a bird and the pastel-y colors of the inspiration card.

Stamps are Martha Stewart Leaf and Branch and Stampabilities Botanicals & Birds. I stamped the branch and bird on very vanilla card stock then decided I would cut it out to put on the card; BUT --- ended up mounting it on vanilla card stock cut out with Nestabilities Labels Eleven. Oh well, at least I got some practice cutting out skinny little bird legs!!!!

Later, my friends,
Betty
