Merry Washi Books

Today I have a two cards to share that I made for a few of this weeks' blog land challenges.

First I have a Christmas Card (yes, we need to get going on these so we're not STRESSED in December right?!!) made for the Merry Monday Challenge sketch  
I made mine clean and simple using stamps from Around Christmas Time and Nordic Christmas by Waltzingmouse stamping in the traditional red and green inks.
I'm also linking this card up to the Moxie Fab Holiday Card Challenge
I made my next card for the Cas-Ology cue card challenge - Book and the Less Is More challenge was to use Washi Tape.
I used strips of Washi Tape to make my 'books' with complimentary strips on the bindings.  The sentiment is from Reading Floppy by MFT.

Tomorrow night I'll be participating in the Waltzingmouse Pajama Party -  will you??  Hope to see you!

They're both fabulous, Julia...
love that book card...
but then...
books always get me! :)
And of course I'll be at the Party...
and since I'm just returning from the brink of death...
I'll actually be in jammies...

I'll spare you! :)
