As a few of my online friends know, about a week ago our house caught on fire. I don't know what the real story is, but somehow my neighbor set his house on fire and since the houses around here are built so close and there was apparently something very flammable in the room closest to our home, the side of our house burned pretty badly.
Here are a few pics of the aftermath, in case you're interested. All I can say is how thankful I am to the Lord for keeping his hand on us that night. It could have been so much worse. My husband and I were both sitting in the dining room on our laptops when I heard what sounded like a tap on the window next to me. I ignored it at first, but then I heard what sounded like a loud knock on the neighbors' window. I got up to look and saw nothing but flames in their window. That tap couldn't have been anything BUT the hand of God. I grabbed the phone and we ran out the door calling 911. At that point, I just wanted to make sure that they were out and thankfully, they were. I don't know any details, but I do know that it started with a cigarette and alcohol was involved and I have no idea why neither one of them called 911 themselves. I just can't thank God enough for what He did for us that night. I shudder to think what could have happened.
This is the side of our house: And this is what's left

Anyway (what you're here for), I made this card to send to the firemen who save our house. This adorable image is from Phindy's Place. Of course all of Phindy's digis are super adorable! And that sweet dp with the circles on it is from a candy I recently won (Thanks again Jane!). The striped paper I made, using sticky strip, my copics and some chunky glitter (and with a LOT of help from my vacuum, lol).
