Vertically Challenge

I've been posting short & to the point post lately. Now, it's rambling time!! :)

Growing up, I often wish that I am not vertically challenge (I refuse to call myself short. Hee... :) ). But, now I accepted the fact and am actually quite fond of being small. After all there's quite a few benefit for being small. I notice people tend to be nice to me, or sometime they treat me like I'm a doll, which is more than fine. I love being treated nicely. Hee....

And, people always think I am younger than my age. Just a couple years ago someone was asking if I was going to a prom since I was shortening a long dress. LOL, since I was already 34 then, I was like are you serious? And, yes... she was serious and she made my day. :)

Anyway, speaking about long dress, looking for one is now the only time when I wish I was taller. I'm exactly 5' even and for my brother's upcoming wedding, I am hunting for a long gown and my future SIL is helping me. She was saying she found some lovely dresses, but they all are too long for me. That's when I laugh. As far as I can remember, I don't think I ever have any long dresses that doesn't need to be shorten (except for my very first long dress that I got when I was 4).

I've been browsing online A LOT as I kind of give up of finding one locally. So, if you have any suggestion as where I should look, please let me know. And... no... kids or junior section, please. Hah!

Enough rambling, here's a quick card I made for CAS-ual Friday sketch challenge. My card totally inspired by Kryssi, who is one of my favorite card maker. Her CAS style is ah-mazing! Also entering this card for Ribbon Carousel holiday challenge.


I love it when a card has such a clean look. Oh... and do you see that I almost reach 400 followers? I want to say thank you to all of you who choose to follow my blog. I really appreciate it. I think we should do a giveaway soon to celebrate, yes? Right now, I am focus on Cards That Care card drive (and many prizes there). So, I'll do a giveaway first week in December. 

Till then, thank you for stopping by here, for all your lovely comments, and for those who have sent cards for the card drive, I have received over 400 cards!! That's just from my end. I think between Jennifer and I, we'll break last year record of 700 cards. THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROSITY!! :)

Awwww... how cute...

David's Bridal sells some styles in petite - that is the only reason my wedding dress didn't need taken up b/c I am 5 ft 2 in and it didn't need shortened at all.
