Winning streak.....

I will start by saying I've never been a lucky person with things like the lottery or door prizes. I think my luck is a changin'!!!

I think I posted before about a winning streak I was on when I purchased some chances. Someone I know has cancer. She is very well liked and there was a big fundraiser for her. Anyway, we won three prizes because my mom wrote my name, my dh's, my boys, etc. One was a gc to a delicious local Italian restaurant, the next was a $50 to Longhorns and the third was a big basket of booze! That was my son's gf's prize and they are of age so it worked well. It was huge and had several large bottles of vodka, Southern Comfort, etc. and tons of mixers and glasses.

Last week I was lucky enough to win some blog yummies on Kerry's blog (Three Clover Designs) and I was very excited about that.

Today I was sitting down reading and falling asleep (didn't sleep much last night) when the phone rang. It was my lss letting me know that I won the Memory Box card contest! Of course, it was only a random pick, not talent, that got me that one. It made my day though. I went over to pick it up. It was 50 Memory Box cards and matching envelopes. Very nice!!













































This card probably looks familiar. I posted one something like this a while back using a bird stamp.

My question is, do things really come in threes? If so, I'm due for another win. My dad's bday is coming up and I have to buy him lottery tix (that's what he loves). The last time I bought some he won $100. When I buy for me, I win NOTHING. So I'm hoping I can pick a winner for him! I don't want to be greedy or anything! LOL
