Phew, I almost didn't get this little card done! I started it yesterday morning and colored her and added glossy accents and glitter.
Left her to dry...
...
AND ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE!!!
The old lady next door backed her car into our house! She smashed out the basement window. I ran outside to see if she was OK.She said "Yes, get someone to fix the window and I'll pay for it!" I was like, "What????" She smashes out our window and doesn't even get out to see what she did and see if she hurt anyone!
She puts the car in Drive and pulls out, puts it in Reverse and backs into her driveway CORRECTLY this time and walks into her house!!
"LIKE WHAT?".
In the meantime my husband had called 911, and got police, ambulance and firetruck on the way. We didn't know what may have happened to her, that's why we called 911. We actually cared if she was OK, she didn't really care too much about us! But we didn't know if she was in shock and wanted to make sure she was fine. When they arrived she was actually pissed that we had called them! We can hear her yelling to them from inside our house (we can hear every conversation she has outside, actually, she's that loud!)
We gave our statement to the Police and then tried to contact the homeowner, as we are renting. The old lady didn't even want us to call her insurance company!!! She said she would pay for the window herself. But she had NO idea what other damage she did to the house. The window ledge has to be replaced, some of the siding outside and a lot of the flooring has to be replaced as it's scratched up from the big chunks of glass hitting it. None of our belonging were damaged, thankfully.
Of course we've gone through all of the what-ifs today and the biggest issue with all of this was the old lady DIDN'T even get out to look at what she did or to see if we were OK...OR TO APOLOGIZE!!!!!
She basically ran away and has been hiding in her house, only coming out a couple of times to smoke.

Oh, and that was the reason I didn't finish my card yesterday :)

Here are a couple of pics.




 That's her car over in her driveway.She has THOUSANDS of dollars worth of damage done on it.

This shows where she was supposed to be driving and where she actually went, right into our window!!

Happy Crafting,
~DEANNE~

Yikes! The biggest part of your incident is that none of your family was injured. Your lives were spared and so was hers. Windows and siding can be cleaned up and replaced as well as her car. You were in the correct part of the house (different room) at the correct time. It could have had totally different outcome(s). Card-wise, it is cuteness overload! Love how you made those sunglasses!!!! Thanks for linking to PPCC blog and that you are fine (baffled but fine). Becca/DT

Good googlie goo. Was she intoxicated? How do you miss the driveway that much? I'm glad you called 911. Makes me wonder if she was intoxicated or if she didn't have car insurance. Wow. So glad you weren't on the treadmill during that time. Glad you guys weren't hurt. Now, about that adorable card.... she's so cute! Love her sparkly sunglasses and flowers. Cute card! Thanks for joining us at Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges.
