Windows @ Christmas Card Challenges

Mornings all :) 
It is time for a new challenge at 

This week the challenge is ... 
 The challenge theme is optional, the only real rule is you must create a new Christmas Holiday, winter or Hanukkah card / creation.
Not going to lie, this one stumped me a little with what to do :$  So I went with something slightly nontraditional window-ey but yet I still managed 2 windows! 

Neutral colors for me this week with two heart windows, a small simple flower, homemade pin and a touch of twine.  The large papers are Stampin Up' and the smaller squares are from my scraps stash.  I made this with hubby's card for the year in my mind so I wanted minimal embellishments and masculine with a touch of love-y dove-y.    

The girls and I would love if you played along with us at

I look forward to seeing you there! 
Thanks for dropping in to see me today :)
