Invites and Thank you Cards

I can't believe it is Saturday already.  Since I came back from vacation a week ago the days has gone shorter and there just doesn't seem to be enough hours of the day to do anything.  For today I just wanted to share the invitations that I made for my son's Christening.
This is a 5 x 7 card
My base is Bazzil
Cream Paper is Recollections 
Vellum where I printed out the information is also from Recollections
The Cross that you see in the background is a Stamp from SU!
I made 30 of these

Here is the one that I made for my daughter's 3rd Birthday, which was also celebrated the same day:
I used my Gypsy Girl and Cricut for this
I welded Tinkerbell into a frame that I saw in the Storybook Cartridge
I really don't remember the cut anymore, sorry :(  I also made 30 of these
For the wings they are glittered I used Recollection Glitter Paper and then for the Eyes I just colored it in.
I used red sharpie for her lips and some stickles for the band on her hair.
The wings I made half in Lime Green Glitter paper and Blue Glitter paper, which I didn't get a picture of.  To be honest the reason why there is no info on this invite was because I sent them all out and didn't leave a copy for me :( so next visit I have to ask my mom for hers.

This is the Thank You cards that I just finished yesterday:
I had to make 40 of these, we had more family members that came than expected which was a good thing.  Thank God my mom always plans ahead when making restaurant reservations
This is a regular 4.25 X 5.5 size card
Ribbon is from Michaels
PP is DCWV Nana's Baby Boy Stack
I used My Creative Times Curly Label Die, the coordinating Stamp Frame from the Inspiring Words (Accents) Stamp Set and the sentiment from the So Grateful For You Stamp Set

I hope you guys like my project, Before I forget, TradeFish Designs will be releasing 4 new stamp sets on Monday but if you visit today you will actually see some sneak peaks already.

Kate, you have been busy! That baptism invitation is just gorgeous, and I still can't believe how close you were to my house! Your daughter must have loved her Tinkerbell invite! It's so cute, but I can't believe you made 30 of those! I have a hard enough time putting together one Disney character! Love the thank yous too. The Curly Label Die is awesome for putting together a simple, elegant card!

I was so emotionally attached with your card the first time I saw it. And now, I am more in love with it. Is this available through online store?
