Flower Spray

May I sound off a bit? Many years ago we had a sprinkler system put in the front yard. So, now it's going into the back yard along with some sod to replace some that had washed away, etc. Why didn't we do the back to begin with? No, I didn't want to. The crew started yesterday and cut my tv cable and a water line. Arghhhhh! Actually, it was no fault of theirs. They said the cable had been marked wrong and a long story with the water line. Just last week, we had ANOTHER storm and the tv cable went off on Sunday and didn't get repaired until Tuesday. Now, the cable company won't fix this until probably Monday. It is bad without a tv.
Edit: Two hours later-- My goodness, my internet and phone went out while typing  my upload. Guess what? Wire cut!!!!!!!! It is fixed temporarily until next Wednesday when it gets a permanent fix. Sometimes it just doesn't seem to pay to get anything done around your house. Does anyone agree?
I really shouldn't complain when I think of all the tornado, floods, and fire damage people have gone through and still suffering with.

So, on to my card. It is made using a KittieKraft tutorial for a flower spray. Kittie does awesome tutorials that are so easy to follow. Some of you may remember, last week I did one of her hydrangeas.

I want to enter my card into the QFTD 64 challenge on Splitcoaststampers. I cased a card made by the new Queen, Lee-Anne aka Shadow's Mom.

Reading you from Google reader to try it out! Thought I was caught up on your blog, but evidently I missed this beautiful card!! I am a sucker for paper flowers and these are gorgeous. Love the colors!

Your card is gorgeous Brenda! I just love that spray of flowers and foliage! I went through pretty much the same experience as you 2 weeks ago when Verizon laid FIOS lines in our front yard and sliced through our Comcast line, severing TV, internet and phone service until the following day!!! I try not to complain either because I know I'm very blessed, but there's no better way to turn me into a cranky person than to take away all of my entertainment vices at the same time! LOL
Better days are coming :) Have a fabulous weekend!

You have had an eventful time. It is like taking 2 steps forward and 5 back. Hopefully they get it all fixed. I love our sprinkling system but my flowers sure don't look this pretty. Love this card Brenda. Great job.
