Stitches and Squares

This week the challenge at Phindy's Friday Challenge Blog is called STITCHES AND SQUARES. Your card must feature a square card/shape AND sewing (real or faux).

I haven't mastered the art of machine sewing on a card so I have done a little hand stitching in each corner of the card. I have made my usual 5"x5" card base and transformed it into another Christmas card. I think I already have about 3 or 4 cards made. Maybe, just maybe, I will have them all done in plenty of time this year and not be scrambling at the last minute as I have done every other year.  I know, wishful thinking.

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