This weekend I spent a lot of time working on upcoming projects, helping my hubby with some renovation projects, and working on an upcoming trip the two of us are planning. We are having a tough time deciding between trying to visit someplace new, or returning to a place that we love. On Friday night we actually purchased some flights, but had to cancel them the next day due to a conflict with Rick's work...so, we're hoping to get something booked this week.
I am also hard at work, with my co-host Terri Brush, on details for our "La Dolce Vita" Italy 2016 retreats. Things are slowly coming together with our Italian partners...August is a month when so many Italians are on holiday and businesses are closed, so it has been a bit difficult to get the info we need in order to finalize and open registration, but we are working on it :)
The card I'm sharing with you this week uses the same "Blissful butterflies" stamp set by My Favorite Things that I used in the layout I shared last week. I love that stamp set and have used it many times in workshops I have taught, and personal projects. The watercolor stamping technique is the same here as the one I demoed in the layout video from last week. (If you didn't see the video, you can check it out here.)
Finally, I wanted to let you know that my friends over at Ellen Hutson have a sale going on right now:

The Melissa Frances "Classic Elegance" 6x6 paper pad which has the antique ledger paper which is on the left side of the card at the top of this post is included in the sale.
