Vintage Thanksgiving cards

I am loving vintage images at the moment. I found these adorable Thanksgiving images along with Halloween ones and just had to use them on my cards.

I coupled the images with papers from Basic Grey which I have always thought are very muted and subtle, and so work so well with this style of image.

Halloween has now passed but do still check out my Halloween cards here.

The festivities of Thanksgiving are just around the corner. I think these cards work really well with the Autumn season. They would look very pretty among the Fall decor. You can find them here.

Easter cards

Spring has sprung! Almost. And Chelle Belle Cards is celebrating with new Easter cards.

These cute cards feature dufex images of ducks, bunnies and chicks. They have been cut out layer by layer and then decoupaged by me, to produce a 3D effect. Dufex is a foiled, shimmery type of card which creates stunning decoupaged images.

Send an card with the handmade touch this Easter.

Introducing...Mommy's Little Helper (Bath and Body shop) (Children's Clothing shop)

Today's feature is about two Etsy shops owned by the same person. Mommy's Little Helper has both a bath and body shop and a children's clothing shop.

Her bath and body shop is a delightfully unique shop with fun, quirky items such as "Monster Away Spray", to exterminate monsters lurking in your kid's room, and "Boo Boo Bags" to help calm an injured child.
The first item shown here is soap titled "We 3 Kings". It contains real gold leaf flakes, Ethopian Myrrh and Frankincense.

It looks like a piece of art and has great reviews on how it lathers, smells and how it leaves your skin feeling.

A great gift idea for someone looking to send a traditional style Christmas present.

This next item is "Cleopatra's Bath Milk". This is a 5 year old Mommy's Little Helper secret recipe and comes in a cool glass jar.

It looks like it would be incredibly relaxing to take a bath filled with these milk epsom salts.

Everything in her bath and body shop has a great price also.

Her second shop sells children's clothing. There are some adorable outfits available.

One of my favourites is this Damask patterned dress. It would make a cute Christmas day outfit. It is made of cotton with a cream lining and a tulle ruffle.

There are other matching outfits made from the same pattern, so you can dress several kids in the same design.

This last piece is a cute Christmas tree dress called "Round the Christmas Tree". It is cleverly made from a long sleeve t-shirt with a ruffle sewn onto the hem to make a dress. The t-shirt is embellished with appliques from the ruffle skirt fabric.

All her clothes come with washing instructions labels sewn in.

She also offers a gift wrap and drop service so that items intended as gifts can be gift wrapped and sent directly to the recipient.

Check out her shops today!

I now ship Internationally!

Because of increased traffic on my blog from countries from almost every continent, I realised that I am possibly missing out on customer opportunities by not offering international shipping.

Therefore, I am now offering international shipping. My items now have shipping rates for the US, Canada and Everywhere else.

So now, anyone from any country can purchase my cards!
