SC168

This was for yesterday's Sketch Challenge on SCS. It has been a while since I've done a challenge on SCS. I used to do them daily, but I just haven't been able to find the time lately. I was determined to do the sketch challenge yesterday. I used the Flutter By set from Paper Pretties. I just LOVE this image and sentiment. My favorite thing to do with this image is to pop up the butterfly and cut out more than one to create a flight pattern. Fun, fun, fun! I'm hoping to get back to doing more of the challenges. They really kept me hopping! :)

Regarding my mother-in-law, she is doing well. They were not able to take her off the ventilator just yet because she wasn't strong enough, but she hasn't gotten worse, so no news is good news. I really appreciate all of your thoughts and prayers. I will keep you posted on her recovery. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Flutter By (Paper Pretties); Ink- Palette Noir; Paper- Palette O' Prints, Whisper White, Basic Black (SU); Accessories-So Saffron, Blush Blossom, Certainly Celery, Rose Red and Really Rust markers, brads, glitter, black organdy ribbon (Darice), paper piercer.

Just a note of encouragement, my grandmother had triple by-pass surgery when she was 84. They kept her on the vent and in a medicated state for 5 days after her surgery. It gave her body time to heal. She is now 90 and still doing well. She still lives alone in her little house and amazes me with her great attitude. By the way, I love your card, too!
