Here’s my card:IMG_8037edited2
  I chose to CASE the colors, the stitching and the one central focal image in Carol’s card.
IMG_8039editedI used a stamp from Happy Little Stampers Butterfly Birthday and a die from HLS Butterfly Dies.
This butterfly is going to flutter over to my conservatory.

Butterflies – 3 x 3

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

IMG_8000edited

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

My 2nd card:IMG_8013edited

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

AAA Cards Game #65 – 2nd Birthday Blog Hop

Hi! I’m happy to be here today for AAA Cards Game #65 & our 2nd Birthday Blog Hop. We’ve got lots of Birthday Fun awaiting you!You should have come to me from Justine.

Here’s my card:

IMG_6007edited

I’d like to say a BIG ‘Thank You’ to our all of our great sponsors!

I used some products fr0m Happy Little Stampers, a Butterfly Die, to cut out multiple white butterflies. I also used a Happy Little Stampers sentiment stamp.

Butterfly Dies IMG_6016edited I also covered some white card stock with washi tape and then die cut the butterfly. 

Here’s my question:

I love butterflies in general and butterflies on cards too! I don’t think I’ve seen a butterfly stamp set or die that I don’t love.  Do you have a favorite butterfly stamp set or butterfly die? What is its name? Please leave your answer in the comments for your chance at a $10 So Suzy Stamp gift certificate. I’ll choose my favorite answer!

The sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers’  Fun Birthday Sentiments.
