First Challenge for a New Design Team ~ Little Red Wagon Challenge #257

Good Morning, my peeps!!  Welcome to my first post as a new designer for Little Red Wagon.  It will be a weekly challenge so make sure you check back EVERY Wednesday to see the new theme.  This week our hostess is Jayne and her theme is STITCHING ~ Real or Faux.  Create a project containing stitching and link it up HERE.

My card today uses a retired stamp from My Favorite Things called Knit Happens.  Knitting is another one of my many hobbies and I was impressed that I could combine two of my favorite things to make this card.  I will most likely knit a cup cozy, add a mug and some hot chocolate and give this all as a gift.  Just not sure to whom yet. I would have loved to have added real stitching to my card but unfortunately my sewing machine no longer works.  Oh well, the faux kind is fine too.
