SHE made me do it! It's all Amy Tsuruta's fault! She made me buy this cute stamp set from Fresh Squeezed Stamps. I just couldn't resist this adorable coffee set, which is a good thing, because today I can play along with Squeeze-A-Palooza#4. What's that, you say? Well, it's a monthly blog challenge over at Fresh Squeezed Stamps.

At least I was able to use some old papers in my stash. Yes, you might recognize this patterned paper as coming from the Basic Grey line, Sugared. I have a TON of 6x6 pads that never get any love. It was refreshing to be able to use just a smidgen of it. This was one of those moments when I wished that I actually USED the Janome sewing machine I bought MANY, MANY years ago. But, sadly, it has remained in its corner gathering dust because I pulled out a clear stamp of zigzag stitching from Hero Arts. It's just too much work to get that Janome going after all these years. You wouldn't know what I'm talking about, would you? (wink)
