Welcome to Cette Petite Maison


My name is Carol-Ann and I am a maker and crafter of all kinds of things and with Cette Petite Maison (This Little House) I hope to share a little bit of my life here in the beautiful rural Quercy Blanc area of France and introduce you to some of my neighbours and their wonderful produce.

I am trying a embrace a simpler lifestyle, working towards sustainability so I am offering a small range of items, made, grown and harvested locally by neighbours and friends and I hope that the phrase Products with Provenance resonates.

If you would like to follow along, it would be lovely to have your company, just add your name and e-mail to Follow my Blog below, and I promise not to inundate you with too many posts.

Free Pintables - A Little Bird Told me - Birthday Cards

Instead of supporting huge corporations like Hallmark et al, printing our own cards, stationery and pictures has never been easer.

Most of us now own printers, and getting hold of card type paper is now fairly easy too, I get mine at my local Supermarket. It their own brand 180g A4 white drawing/watercolour paper with a slight grain, Canson make similar paper so it is easy to find.

And as for pictures to put on cards, well the internet is full of images, BUT these are NOT always free to use unless it specifically states they are. However, sites like Etsy and Zibbet for example have loads of very talented artists who offer downloadable art at very reasonable prices, so it is just a case of choosing an image that you like, buying it to print at home.

Here is a link A Little Bird Told Me... Printable Birthday Cards  two FREE Birthday Card Printables that I have made for you. Just click on it to open the PDF file and click print, this will give you 2 x A5 cards with a very faint horizontal line between the two cards to show you where to cut. These fit neatly into A6 envelopes.

Have fun with these and see you soon with more printables and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me :)


Please note: That Screens and Printers sometimes show different colours, so what you see on your screen might not be what your printer prints, however I'm happy with the results and I hope you will be too.
