Welcome Lilly "Bug" - Paula's Blog Hop

A month ago my friend Paula was giving birth of her daughter Lilly (aka "Bug"), she born on Friday June 4th and weighing in at 7 lbs and 13 1/2 oz.

Hannah, Deborah and Helen came up with great idea to celebrate it with a BLOG HOP.. and I'm so excited to join it as my first blog hop.
If you came here from Heather's blog, that means you're on the right path.. :)  

A little ray of sunshine has come into the world,
A little ray of sunshine in the shape of a girl.
Each time a child is born... the world lights up with new possibilities.
Babies are bits of stardust, blown from the hand of God.
Paula's baby card
Congratulations Paula & Doug, Lilly is super sweet and adorable!!
Having new baby born is one of the best things in life :) So happy for both of you :)
Stamps: Hero Arts-CL265, CL264, and S5369
Paper: Hero Arts-PS568 and PS570
Ink: Ranger distress ink, Hero Hues, Memento
Cuttlebag distress stripes

Baby tips for the day: 
Do you know that if you put the baby down while they’re awake is better than if you put down after they are asleep?
When a baby is put down after they are asleep, they’ll eventually stir and will probably wake up. 
If they aren’t being held in your arms anymore, they might get upset and want to be back in your arms. So they’ll cry until they are.
But if you put them down while they’re awake and they fall asleep on their own, they won’t be startled when they wake up because they’ll be right where they were before they fell asleep. If they sleep well, then you'll have precious time for yourself perhaps doing craft things, who knows? :)

A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit, a golden thread to the meaning of life.

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 :)

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 :)
