Sweet on you!

No challenges today! It's just a regular play day. I've been itching to use this cherry paper and these mini chipboard letters since bringing them home from our road trip this month. I got them in Calgary at the Scrap Yard (great name, eh?) Though cherry season is over where I live (I have pies and jam in the freezer to prove it!) I just love this paper! I was inspired by a Dawn McVey card last week on this post. And I got to stitch again!! If you must know, I had a Singer Pixie in March and long story short...it worked maybe 10 times before the bobbin broke and going through 2 foot pedals. So I returned it to Walmart even though it was purchased in the States (thanks nice lady at Walmart!) and went straight to a sewing machine shop in town and bought a regular Janome machine...brand new, half price! I'm thrilled with it...it's a smooth, sweet ride :) Have a great day...we are packing to go camping this long weekend in Canada. I've got a few pre-scheduled posts, though, so come back soon!
Recipe:
Paper: PTI white, dp; October Afternoon dp; SU red dp; pink and burgundy (craft supply)

Love the cherry dp and the ribbon detail. I think a sewing machine will be my next big purchase. Thanks for sharing your freestyle!
