Hi! This card was made for today’s Sketch Challenge.
Last Friday, Lois, (Clownmom) and Nicole, (ButterflyEars) met up here in Jacksonville, and we went on a MASSIVE shopping spree! I don’t think I’ve purchased that much stuff in one afternoon in my life! What a GREAT shopping therapy day! We also got to hang out with 3 ladies from Jacksonville, who Lois has met at our stamping retreats, so it was a GREAT time!
However, Markie got sick on Friday night with a 104.6 temperature. I FREAKED out, called the doctor, gave him Motrin and a cold shower. I got his temp down to 103 and the doctor said to keep giving him the Motrin until the fever was gone. Well….Monday it wasn’t gone. We went in to see the doctor who immediately sent us to the hospital! OMGosh! I was freaking out! After all this, we got home after 5AM on Tuesday, with a prescription for an antibiotic for an infection from his recent surgery. However, the fever and the FULL BODY RASH are still there. The child had to endure urine tests, sonograms, x-rays, etc. And, for those of you who are thinking, “It’s got to be Strep…Well, the quick test was negative for that one…” And, the hospital waiting room, as well as the doctor’s office today, had MANY children with the rash and fevers. It’s thought this is a virus. And, now, Markie has a note stating he can’t return to school until NEXT Wednesday! OMGosh! According to the doctor, this takes 12-16 days to go away! I’m so tired of this, and poor Markie is miserable.
On to the card. I decided to use these papers and flowers from a new Premium Paper Craft Pack. I LOVE these flower colors, so I colored the butterfly with coordinating Copic Markers.
Finished card size: 6” x 4 ¾” I had to increase the card size to accommodate the big flowers.
Time to complete: 19 minutes
