two challenges

It's been a busy few days. Friday morning I took my SIL to have a pedicure. A very relaxing hour sitting in massage chairs having our feet and legs massages and our toes painted. In the afternoon more family arrived. John (BIL) his wife Mary, their daughter Nicola and her son Nathan. MIL was really pleased to see them all, especially her great grandson. Nathan is 8 months old and an adorable little thing. Then it was off to Emma's place for pre-dinner drinks and then down to Devonport to Graham ( yet another BIL) and Denise's place for dinner. Needless to say by 9.00 June was shattered.

Saturday morning was a bit of a sleep in then off to watch Kieran (son) played rugby. Talk about "the silly season" - standing on the sideline watching rugby in shorts and jandels. One lot of friends were off to watch their other son play cricket... Peter took the inlaws off to the airport to head back down the island while I caught up on the house work.

Haven't felt too creative this week, but this afternoon decided to do a card that would do for two challenges. One being HA windows and one KWernerdeigns Colour Inspiration
As I don't have any Stampin Up card or inks I had to use what I had that matched. I used some Berger paint samples for my tango and shaffron colours- layering them and then cutting out the window with nestibilites. I cut a nestie square out of the white card for the window. Stamp is HA F5132 Black and white flowers - stamped in a Fawn colour Impress ink ( darkest brown colour I had) Sentiment inside from Inkadinkadoo 96614 Expressions stamped inside the card together with an portion of the flowers stamp.

Also here is the card I made for Di to give my daughter. Just a little one using my favourite HA 4 dolls stamp.
Well that's all for today. Go check out the HA Flickr group for all the wonderful window cards

Love both of these ... what a cool window card design and the textured red cardstock really makes your little lady pop.

Really neat idea to cute a frame out of the front of the card. Great job on the color challenge.

It's a good life!
