Butterflies – 3 x 3

Hi! I’m here with 3, no 4, cards to share with you today.

I made this with Gelatos, a splattering of Smooch Spritz, hand painted Popsicle sticks on regular heavyweight white card stock. I stamped the sentiment in gray.

I did not know this until today, but apparently butterfly ice creams are a real thing!

In 2008 the brand launched double-stick Nestlé Eskimo Butterfly and Nestlé Eskimo Night Butterfly, which can be divided into two sticks with two flavors to enjoy.
Who knew?!

Many of you ask about the little house in my yard. Here’s a view of the Wine Hut, as we call it, from my patio. It was moved here during the 1950’s from a nearby vineyard.  It was recently refurbished.IMG_8036edited

I also made this with Gelatos, a splattering of Smooch Spritz and stamped the sentiment in gray on mixed media paper.
