As I was thinking about this card over the weekend, I also needed a birthday card for a workmate on Monday. I was a bit stumped, but then I remembered that she has two pieces of art on her wall with black butterfly outlines and splashes of color on a white background. Here's what I came up with.

Freshly Made Sketches: Butterfly Birthday
It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Jen Brum.
The butterfly is a bit brighter and more cheerful than the above picture.
My husband continues to recover from surgery last week. He was actually out of bed for the entire Super Bowl yesterday! The surgeon said probably two weeks before he felt much like moving around, but I have a tough time picturing him getting around one-footed even then. He's a big man and his cast is huge - so it's a bit comedic watching him try to get around (but I only laugh on the inside!). He sleeps A LOT, which is good because when he's up, he's already bored. On Saturday, I was downstairs making cards and our son was doing homework in his room and we got a text from him saying he was lonely. It's going to be a long few months (mostly for my husband but I can whine a tiny bit too.) I'm praying it solves the problem - because he's got to face this with the other foot this summer.
Have fun with this sketch!!
I found the top butterfly and it's linked below. There's also a coordinating solid butterfly for the bottom by Memory Box called Moonlight Butterfly.
