Wishing You Blessings

Hi everyone and happy Monday. How was your weekend? Ours was pretty laid back. It was a cold, gloomy weekend. And, for the 3rd time in a week, we have a fuse blown that thrown all 37 houses in our neighborhood into darkness for a few hours.

I guess, good thing it's winter at the moment. To have no power in the summer in Texas even just a few hours would be unpleasant. And, our winter is not bad like winter in the north. So, we bundle up with dogs and went to bed early, since there's nothing we can do.

Oh, we did do something fun. On Saturday morning we went to the Indonesian consulate and found out that in the afternoon they're hosting a Culinary Festival. So, I attended my girlfriend baby shower and then dash home to go straight back to the consulate again. The thought of a bunch of vendors selling good Indonesian food was dreamy!!

Lucky for me, hubby is just as excited. He keep asking me what was that, what about that one, etc. Then while walking around, I heard someone calling my name. I ignore it thinking I don't have any Indonesian friend in Houston. Well, turned out it was my friend from 9th grade!! What a small world! LOL, I thought the only Indonesian people I know in Houston are my cousins.

To complete my weekend, I also play with some new stamp of course. I recently won this gorgeous MFT set from Lisa Johnson. Pretty rare where I do fall cards, but I love the shape of the leaves on thi set. 

Thanksgiving, blessings

And, I chose a brighter colors as I just couldn't do dark or jewel tone fall colors. I like bright, happy colors. Don't get me wrong. I love fall colors in nature, jut not on cards. ;)

By the way, have you send your cards in for Caring Hearts Card Drive? 2 more weeks to go before it ends. I hope you will send in some cards. Right no we have about 35 places to support and I sure would love to able to cover all the nursing homes on our list.

Thanks for stopping by here and may your week starts off wonderfully!
