Molly in March!

Happy Wednesday, How are things going for all of you? A good start to the week, I poison ivy is still itching some and the patches are still visible but not festered as they were last week.  I have learned my lesson, no more messing with anything that I am not sure what it is from now on. Murphy's Law is still at work at my house, Rick came down with the crud on Friday and hasn't hardly been able to raise his head since, he is some better today but still extremely weak and now I have a sore throat and cough....what is happening around here, lol.

Enough of my problems......because there are definitely no problems going on at Sweet Sketch Wednesday where we are being sponsored by the fabulous Stamp Fairy who is giving this week's Grand Prize winner a gift certificate to her store.

We will also choose 3 top picks who will each receive a banner to place on their blog. Hope it is you....

For my card this week, I am using Gerda's image "March-Molly Throughout the Year". I loved working with her this week and Arlana's beautiful sketch which is this month's oldie but goodie repeat.

Here is another angle of my card so that you can see the layers a little better.

I used my fave Stampin' Up certainly celery card stock along with one of my very favorite design papers "butterfly garden" by Pink Paislee, this is one of the butterflies that is also from that collection.

Be sure and stop by SSW and give the other gals a visit this week and see the details on their beautiful cards. As always, thanks for taking the time to stop in and see what I am up to. I promise that soon I am going to stop telling you my problems if you will just bear with me....or at least I am praying so.
Happy Day my friends.

I am entering this into the Spring challenge at Deep Ocean Challenge #20

Patti, I am so sorry to hear you and your family have been sick. I hope you all get feeling better soon. The poison ivy is no fun either. I love your added butterfly to your card. It is a beautiful addition. I love Molly too. I love how you have her sitting off the oval. Take care,
Hugs, Nancy

What a gorgeous butterfly that is on your card! Hate it that you have poison ivy -- I used to suffer dreadfully with that stuff when I was a kid and young adult. Hope your DH's health is better soon too!

I think you two need to get some rest and get away after all the stress you have been under, you are all worn down :( Hope you all get better soon. Your card is adorable with the dimension you have with the soft colors.

Hi Patti, I'm so sorry to hear of your friends passing life hasn't been easy for you lately, here in NZ there is a saying it happens in 3's so I guess the Poison Ivy did the trick for the 3rd thing, I don't think we have it here in NZ thank goodness!!! Love your card she's very cute and I adore your butterfly perfect finishing touch. Take care and I do hope you've started to feel better.
