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.

Turquoise Butterfly



I've been working on the Make & Take that I'll share with our card making group the first Saturday of next month. I love this little card and I'm sure they'll all be excited about making it. I don't know the name of this card -- I had one that my daughter had given me and I got the measurements and all other particulars from it. If you know the name, please let me know. I'd like to share a link to a tutorial. By the way, it is a turquoise card -- (my camera always makes my turquoise look blue).

I may not know the name of this card but one thing I do know -- it's awfully hard to get a good picture of it unfolded!! The wind was blowing when I was trying to take the picture and the little guy just kept falling over!! Anyhoo, here are a couple of shots that I was able to get........



Have a blessed day,
Betty

Sorry I don't know the name, but it is a fantastic fold. I am sure they will love to learn how to make it. That is quite an ambitious project!

Betty,
Love the spring colors and that amazing fold. Great job getting that one pulled off. Looks like it's a combo of several different folds. The top part looks like a tri fold and not sure about the bottom, but I sure do love it.
