long time no see

It's been a month or even more since my last post.. In case you've been wondering why i've been mia for such a long time.. I've been super mega ultra busy with my new job.. Thought changing job will make me happier but we are not always get what we want, and this is happening on me.. so i just try to do my best and I really hate that i need to hang on my stamps and tools for... errr i'm not so sure until when.. :(

I'm so sorry if i missed lots of things from update in Hero blogs, Hero winners, all of my flickr friends cards and updates from all of my blogging friends.. plus some emails which i have not reply it yet.. i'm very sorry my friends!

To catch up several things i've been missed i put it all into this post :)
First is June CCC, my favorite challenge other than Hero Arts.. host by Deborah.
I got an elegant and beautiful card from my dream mates Deirdre and she also sent me several yummy goodies (stickers, ribbons, gems).. soo adorable!! Thank you so much Dee :)

I sent two cards to Anette in Norway
June CCC
Supplies: my new HA stamp from Sue aka Stampersuzz CG171, Hero Hues & memento ink, blue linen cardstock & kraft paper.

mmm yummy
Supplies: TGF stamp roll call kit, PP from my stash, Memento ink, kraft paper, colored with copic

The second is my meet and greet with my best friend Vera Rhuhay. Can you believe that after a year and half we've been chatting, emailing, calling each other, we are never meet in person?
When she texted me that she would go to Jakarta last week, i'm so surprise and excited!! I think that's my happiest moment during this month.. LOL. We met each other on last Saturday Jul 10th. We went shopping together in Mangdu and both of us introduce the guys in our life (my DH Widya, Vera's DH: Viva and DS: Steven).. I especially adore Steven, he's so cute saying that i'm still young and he likes me.. LOL :)
Vera is soo sweet, she brought me special food from Surabaya (the famous Ms. Rudy's shrimp and super hot chili sauce.. mmm yummy) plus lots of new stamped images from Hero Arts Summer edition.. woow i just can't wait to color them all :)

A day before we met, I made her a card... to express my excitement for finally able to meet her in person :)
and here is the detail
Supplies: Hero Arts stamps-CL153, CL382, CL417 and S5215; Paper-PS570; blue linen and green cardstock, Memento tuxedo black and Versa ink blue sky ink, Nestie label 8, red string, white pen, and copic sketch :)

Thanks Vera, you brought smile in my face again.. can't wait to meet you again :)
