Be Inspired #19

Hey friends,

We had some excitement in our neighborhood yesterday. There is a couple that lives across from us that has moved somewhere south. Their house has been vacant for awhile as they are trying to sell it. The problem is that they shut off the power to their house and with the freezing temperatures, things happen. Our street was filled with fire trucks, volunteer fire fighters and town department cars last night as it was discovered pipes had busted in the house and it was full of water. No telling how long it has been flooded as one of the helpers noted that the basement was full of water along with other areas of the house and mold is growing on the wall throughout the house. Yikes!

I wanted to share with you a card I made for the latest BE Inspired Challenge hosted by The Alley Way Stamps.

Thanks for stopping by,

Yikes! That is such a scary story about the pipes bursting and that now they have mold growing. Ugh! On a nicer note, your card is super duper cute! I love how you used the matching sequins, too. Super fun detail!

I so love your patterns and texture - and the bling accents are wonderful! But..how awful for you neighbor. I've heard that water damage is one of the hardest things to deal with.

Kim S said...

Ooop...I was so taken with your neighbor's story, I forgot to say that I was so glad to see you at The Alley Way Stamps BE Inspired Challenge.
