Cookie Adventures: On Hiatus

It's been a while since I have been here.  I am sure you have all been wondering, what's up with the Cookies.  Well, for one, the girls are finally out! They're almost 4 months now. Yes, time flies.

It's a rollercoaster ride, this new chapter of the Cookies' life called parenthood.  And life couldn't get busier juggling careers and looking after the two tiny tyrants! It's exciting times indeed for our little family.

And so, while I am learning to be Mama Cookie, I hope you'll stick around while the crafty side of me goes on a hiatus for now.

In the meantime, Lauren and Amanda says Hello! :)

It's me,

365 Cards: Day 279 - Super Sketchy Sunday (Sketch by Wendi Robinson)

Welcome to this week's Super Sketchy Sunday on the 365 Cards Challenge blog. And here's your sketch.

And here's my "rebel" take on it! It's World Card Making weekend after all, so might as well try something out of the box. :)

I used one of my favourite sets from The Greeting Farm called Sitting Pretty. :)  I also incorporated a cute little tag which has my sentiment.  This is inspired by The Greeting Farm's Farm Fresh Friday - Terrific Tags challenge.

Now, it's your turn to amaze us with your creative takes to this week's sketch. Make it fun and link it up to the challenge blog.

Needing more inspiration.  Here's the rest of the DT blogs for you to check out!

365 Cards: Day 272 - Super Sketchy Sunday (Sketch by Wendi Robinson)

I was going through Facebook photo albums and chanced upon this cute photo of my baby self. :)

I remember this photo hanging at our living room in the Philippines.  It found it's way to our wedding photo montage. And now I am putting it out there with the hopes of my twin girls outdoing my cuteness here. LOL! :)  Well, I think it's decided, they will definitely be waaaaay cuter that I was. :)

Okay, now on to some Design Team business.  Here's the latest sketch for us to play with this Super Sketchy Sunday.

And here is my CAS take on it. I hope you like the card I prepared for you today. :)  It showcases The Greeting Farm's latest Birthday Anya. She is such a cutie herself!

The rest of the Sunday Design Team have more inspiration for you, so hop along...

We all encourage you to join us this week and link up your fantastic creations.  We'd love to see what you create.

Seize the Birthday: Anything Goes with a "Toppings" option of More than one Colour of Ribbon

What a fantastic week it's been so far... I am 31 weeks into my pregnancy (with twin girls) and in spite of the extra weight I am lifting, I am feeling pretty good. Hopefully, this goes on for the next few more weeks.

And until then, I'll leave you with my latest card for this fortnight's Seize the Birthday Challenge!  And again, it's a birthday cardmaking challenge with an extra option of toppings!

So this round your "Toppings" option is
"More than one color of ribbon"  

Here is my card for you. I didn't have a lot of ribbon, or at least my "baby brain" can't figure out where I've kept them. LOL! So, I just used 3 different kinds of trims on my card - lace, sheer ribbon, and twine. I hope that works for you. :)

If you recognize that little cutie, yes, she's Baby Anya from The Greeting Farm's Baby Anya and Ian Rubber Stamp set. I love paper piecing her. She's too adorable. :)

Okay, that's me for now.  The rest of my gal pals at STB will have more inspiration for  you so do find time to check out their wonderful creations as well.
