Wow, I think I really enjoyed my break to the max! Granted there's many things that I want to do that still didn't get done, but it sure felt great to lounge around and watched some cheesy Christmas movies. On top of that, I did get most of Christmas shopping done. My in-laws called yesterday to see if we would go with them to Katy Mills mall, I said okay immediately. LOL, hubby thought I was the only one that have to go. His dad made him go, too.
Hubby desperately trying to came up with several excuse for him not to go. He felt better when his dad showed up and said they'll do happy hour while his mom and I went shopping. Yeah, when it comes to shopping, I'd rather go by myself than with hubby. I don't like people waiting on me cause then I feel guilty.
And, another important thing that happened during the long weekend, Lori, her husband Carlton, & daughter Sarah delivered Caring Hearts cards package to Baton Rouge Caring Center. Here's Lori with Lynette the activity director, sorting the cards out. She said that the residents were excited when she showed up and can't wait to see what she brought over. It feels so great knowing that our little hobby can help brighten people's day.
I would think it would be nice to be able to send birthday card as well, but haven't quite figure out how to organize that. After my Indonesian trip, I'll figure it out how to brighten our senior citizen's day through out the year and not just during the holidays. Only 17 more days before my trip! Eekkk..... :)
Now, on to card for today. I made this card for Lucy's challenge of using something old. That vellum with snowflake background has been on my scrap stash for a few years. If I'm not wrong it was part of Christmas party invitation that I made for Lori back in 2004 or 2005? Can't remember.
Crafty Pad - snowflakes
Crafty Sentiments - christmas
Freshly Brewed - winter or christmas
Inktegrity - anything goes
So, did any of you taking advantage of the Black Friday shopping? I ended up ordering some Copics from Scrap-mart and stamps from Simon Says Stamp. Anyway, today back to reality. Back to work. Hope you all have a great Monday! Cheers!
