Time for new light bulbs!

 There is a light fixture with ceiling fan directly above the table 
where I always sit to use my laptop.
One day, as I was "working", the room got a bit darker.  I looked outside and the sun was still shining, no clouds in sight.  One of the 3 light bulbs above me had just blown.  Not a big problem...there were still two that were working.  About a month ago, another bulb called it quits.  The final light bulb failed when I flipped the switch this morning.  I am now working in the dark. 
What is the big deal about putting in 3 new light bulbs?
you might be asking yourself.   
Once I get those 3 bright new bulbs in the fixture, they will illuminate all kinds of things... the dust on the outer globes, the grime on the edges of the white ceiling fan paddles (was I nuts? white paddles in the kitchen?), the list goes on.  
Here's an idea: maybe I'll just replace 1 bulb.  

All that stuff about light bulbs has absolutely nothing to do with the card I made for today.  
The focal digi image is Circle Sentiment Pumpkin Season from Bugaboo Stamps.  The stamps on the borders are from CTMH.
