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.

Buttons, Brads and a Bird


Well, all the other Roses have their cards posted, so I'd better get mine online too! I sent everyone a stamp and some dp to use for our challenge but there's always going to be one rebel in a group -- that was our Olga-Rose -- she didn't use the dp!! What can I say, I love her anyway!!
I used the sketch from Card Patterns. Fell in love with it the minute I laid eyes on it.

The stamp is from Martha Stewart. The cactus wren is the state bird of Arizona. Discovered that when I googled "desert, bird, cactus"!

Hope everyone has a blessed Sunday,
Betty

Yep, she's a rebel, that Olga is! Had to take a sec form preping for company to comment on your birdie! I will look up a Cactus Wren when I get a few minutes, and see what his claim to fame is. He is looking mighty fine to me.

Betty, have enjoyed seeing the Roses do your challenge. I have these stamps and also had to research what the birds were. Too bad Martha did not include that info with her stamps. Have only used the cactus wren. Love your card. And do forgive Olga.

Wow Betty that was the perfect scetch for your card.....really really nice.

I enjoyed your challenge even if it meant I had to colour a bird (and a red one too!). I know olga didn't use the dp but her card was mega pretty!! I'm off in search of Connie and Kyms!!
