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.

Tissue Flowers

Hello to all! This card will be entered into the following challenges:
Creative Clear Stamps Sketch Challenge (CVSC9)
Prairie Fairy Friday (use flowers)-- oops! I missed out on the deadline!
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday (make your own flowers)

This is the sketch from Creative Clear Stamps. I took a bit of liberty with the top circles -- made my much larger by using the tissue flowers that I made in this position. I also used some flower embellies that my online friend Connie sent to me recently -- thanks, Connie, they matched my project perfectly!! I used three punches (Stampin' Up small oval and Martha Stewart Tulip Garden and I don't know the name of the little "fern-y looking" punch, but it is from Martha Stewart. My stamped sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's set, Everyday Button Bits. And I love these little pink pearls -- they are so soft-looking!

Hope you'll come back to visit again!
