What a Night!

Hello! Hope everyone is having a good week so far and is ready for the weekend! I know I am!

I in tented to post this card last night but guess what happened instead? My cousin came to visit with her mom last night, parked her car outside my house, walked in the driveway and BOOM! A lady hit her car head on, pushing her car forward and hit the fire hydrant. The fire hydrant slammed against my fence along with her car! Water was everywhere! What was freaking scary was if my cousin stayed by the gate 10 seconds longer, she would have been gone! Usually when she comes, she doesn't close the gate (press number to open and close) but last night she did! She was waiting for the gate to close. Oh my god, it was so close! And if my hubby didn't come home a couple of minutes late, it would have been him because usually around that time, he would be waiting in his car for the gate to open! Thank goodness my cousin wasn't in the car! Oh, the lady was fine. She was by herself and the officer said she was drinking of using the cell phone and such. She said "I think I was thinking too much". What the heck!

Well, EVERYBODY came! The whole street was blocked! My front yard is flooded! My fence fell! My gate won't open now! My cousin's car, mostly like totally lost since it's like a sandwich now! What a night! It lasted about a good two and half hours because I didn't get to have dinner until after 9:30pm.

Anyway...oh, my card...I made this card for the pink and purple challenge over at Club Anya and Friends but didn't make the deadline. I totally forgot to post it too!

Well at least this card fits these challenges:
Die Cuts R Us: No Designer Paper
The Pink Elephant: Ribbon
A Spoonful Of Sugar: Spring is in the Air. This is pretty springy looking right?
Your Next Stamp: Spring Colors

Well, I know I ramble too much so I am going to stop. hehe. Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and leaving me the nicest comments! I really appreciate them and they mean a lot to me!

What a night, indeed! So glad no one was physically hurt and that it could have been much worse than a flood. Super cute card, though! Sorry you missed your deadline and I hope you have a stress free weekend!
