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 Stamps Challenge

I'm really grateful for all the sketch challenges that are helping me get my birthday cards made this week! This time, it's a clean and simple sketch from AnnaBelle Stamps (ABSC054).

I used a Sizzix Texturz Backgrounds plate on the Creamy Caramel card stock; it's a subtle impression that I like on that expanse of "clean"; unfortunately you can't see it in the photo. I printed up a page full of these colored butterflies and cut them out the other night when I couldn't sleep -- might as well get something accomplished in the early morning hours!! The butterfly is coated with Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel and adhered to a panel cut with a Ribbon Tag from Spellbinders; birthday stamps are from Gina K. Designs. I lucked into finding a ribbon in my stash that matched really well.

May be back later if I get another one done!

Betty, sorry I haven't been to visit for a while. You have been making some gorgeous cards. I especially love the monochromatic one you did for Joan's. The sketches you have been using are great and you have been super creative using them.
Hope you are well,
