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.

Wings Like Eagles

Another special order birthday card for my friend's brother who is a pastor. I found the free eagle picture on the internet, cropped it, lightened it, and added the shadow border around the edges. Next, I added the sentiment and then printed it out. Next step was to stamp the scripture verse from a Taylored Expressions set, Rest and Renewal. Finished off the card with paper from a black and white paper pack and a wide black and gray ribbon from my stash. I really like the simple lines of it for a guy's card.

I'll be linking this up to Word Art Wednesday since it has an inspirational scripture. Oh, to just let go of striving in our own power, spread our wings, and be uplifted by the strength of the Lord.

Wow, Betty! This is wonderful. I would have been so scared to stamp on that beautiful image. Plus, you got the Happy Birthday, David in just the right spot too. Very brave, and PERFECT work! It turned out super, and I just bet he will LOVE it. Thank you SO MUCH for sharing this gorgeous creation with us at Word Art Wednesday this week. What a blessing to see this in our challenge.
Hope you're having a blessed week, and praising God along the way!
