Christmas Morning

It is Thursday and we have another challenge for you at Delightful Challenges.  This week we would like to see stitching on your card - real or faux.  I have to admit that I had the card all glued down and then realized I hadn't done any stitching (first the hearing, then the memory and now the eyesight - lol) so this time I have gone with faux stitching.  I must admit I like the look of my hand stitching but this was certainly less time consuming.   I decided to create a simpler card this time and give it a bit of a country look so the faux stitching tied right in.  This cute little guy is one of the new release stamps for November.  Check out the store for more new stamps.

Our lovely sponsor this week is our very own Digital Delights by Louby Lou with all 3 DVD collections filled with digital stamps for all occasions (prize value $34.99).  You don't have to use one of the Digital Delights images to win this prize but if you do, please follow the instructions to enter your project twice.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
