House of Cards May Challenge


I'm so late getting this posted.  By the time I got my card finished yesterday, it was too dark to get a photo.  I volunteered to babysit for a couple at church, and didn't get home until late, and then had to be up early to help with the two year olds at Sunday school this morning.  A nap sounds great, right about now. lol

This months challenge at House of Cards is clear papers.  You can use vellum or acetate, or anything that is transparent.

Here is the card I made.

I waited until the last minute possible to get my mom's card made for Mother's Day this year.  I've been so busy, that I actually had to schedule it into my week this week. lol  The weather has been awful, so I wouldn't have been able to get a good picture anyway.  I've kept this one simple too.  You can see the beautiful chevron patterned paper underneath the vellum, and I wanted to keep it that way.  I love this patterned paper!  I'm sure my mom will be happy with it also. She's my biggest fan.  

Anyway, sorry this post is so short.  I have things to do, and need to get them done before tomorrow, because my supervisor will be out all week.  I hope you'll head over to the HOC blog to see what gorgeous cards my friends have made for you this month.  Hopefully, you'll get the chance to join us for this months challenge. :-)

Take care!
