In the vein of transparency, I’m sharing my card that I am struggling to love.

This week has thrown a few curve balls our way.  The tranquility of Monday brought challenge after challenge through the end of the week.  When all is said and done, we now have one of my sons, his fiancee, and her 3 year old daughter…. oh, and the puppy… living with us in our 2 bedroom apartment.  I am very proud to say that they are aggressively looking for their own place and we anticipate a less congested apartment by the end of this week.  Fun times!

So, suffice it to say, my creative time was limited.  The funny part about this card is that I love the individual elements, but as a whole… not a big fan.  What do you think?

The patterned paper behind the vellum shows way better in person…
