Picture perfect cards...a gift that keeps giving...

I came across these gorgeous handmade cards
while visiting my local gift and nursery shop...
I have bought the first two and will be framing them...


Although many will not be able to buy them like me at my local store...
I have found an online store that stock them...

You can find these cards and so much more 


These wonderfully unique greeting cards are from El Salvador 
  They are made using native flowers and plants
by a group of enterprising women who formed a 
co-operative in the highlands of El Salvador 
after massive mud slides and a devasting earthquake left 
many families jobless and homeless.


Not only will you get a unique gorgeous card 
that you can give as a gift or like me frame it for all to see...

But you will be helping creative woman that are part of a
 company committed to providing 
sustainable employment to the economically disadvantaged. 

They are a member of the Fair Trade Federation.
