Cookies Are Sweet :-)

Hello thank you for visiting me today. I have been awfully quiet these days... This week was crazy cause both of my kids have problems adjusting to school /pre-school and the other reason is that i was busy organizing something very special :-)


I would like to let you to mark your calenders for Saturday the 19 to come and participate in a blog hop! During you will hop from blog to blog, be certain to find some stampers you know but there are going to be other fabulous blogs to see, who i love and get my personal inspiration from! During the hop you are going to find candies and at the end of the blog hop you are going to find one huge end prize. If you like to check the ladies blogs out before the blog hop starts.. please feel free to visit them already today to find exciting cards. I have linked them in them in the blog roll. Quick note to my card. Below you can see the sketch the card was worked with. I wanted to add instead of ribbons or papers something different and thought those cinnamon sticks are not only cute, they also smell yummy. They are not any bulkier than if you add flowers and other things :-) Other than the 3 sticks i did not want to add too many more embellis. Sometimes i just worry to overload the card too much. I hope i was able to show something a little different today :-) Take care.

Hi Claudia. What a nice card you've made. I love the image you've used.
I'm sorry to hear about your boys. My girls luckily adjusted just fine.
But a lot of kids have some adjusting problems hope for you your boys will be over it next week!
Unfortunately I cannot participate in your blog hopping. I'm spending this weekend with my best friend Janine in Barcelona. Hubby has to stay at home look out for the girls LOL
Hope you have a lovely bloghop and a big hugh to you and the boys. Perhaps you can let them listen to the music of my blog again :)

Love,
Jolanda
