Christmas In August? Merry Monday # 72 and Just Add Ink # 179

It has been much too long since I participated in a card challenge.  A few years ago I would stay up at night waiting for the various challenges to be posted.  Then life (and Princess Isabella) and blog readers came along and unfortunately I spent more time reading blogs than creating.
So what motivated me today?  With September approaching, it is time for my favorite crafting time of the year- the holidays.  So I am beginning with Merry Monday and Just Add Ink sketches.  They were similar and a chance to use my new favorite element- WASHI TAPE!

This is a beautiful Christmas card, Diane; the gold-embossed ornament is lovely. Isn't that washi tape just fabulous? I'm looking forward to playing with mine soon! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week. :)

Such a pretty Christmas card, Diane! Love your beautiful ornament & washi tape!
Llama's are such interesting animals! My friend has a farm with about 15 of them. The picture is too cute!
Thanks for playing along with us this week over at Merry Mondays! :)
