Good Morning Everyone ~ wanted a simple Fall card today so created a Sheltering Tree Fall for you today.
Well I did not get my license yesterday. I went to the DMV and the wait was 3 hours. Needless to say I did not stay. They only have 2 examiners instead of 6 so that is why the wait is so long. This wait is a lot longer than the wait in St. Mary’s. I thought we were bad! And to make this worse, we are now looking at Hurricane Michael to come into our area tonight and tomorrow as a Tropical Storm. They are predicting about 2 inches of rain and some strong winds. I am so glad they got my lot cleared and I don’t have to worry about a tree coming down on Barb and Doug’s house. There are 2 large trees that are not on my land that it would be nice if they came down in this storm then I don’t have to worry about them on my house. Time will tell as the storm is supposed to be totally out of the area by Friday evening. I hope it will do minimal damage as the people here cannot take more time without electricity and their houses being flooded.
In keeping with my Fall theme this week I have another Fall idea for you. This time I used the Sheltering Tree stamp set. I stamped the tree using Soft Suede. Then using Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry, and Pumpkin Pie and the small leaf stamp I stamped the image repeatedly on the tree. Then I also added some of the leaves on the ground under the tree. I mounted the tree onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock. A piece of Whisper White card stock was dry embossed using the Woodland embossing folder. A used the Crumb Cake ink pad and swiped it across the embossed image to add some color to highlight the embossing. I added my retired ribbon on the bottom, and then using Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach the panel to a Crushed Curry card base. The stamped tree was then added to the card base using dimensionals. Here is my completed Sheltering Tree Fall creation.

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you. I was going to go back to DMV today and sit and wait to see if I can get my license. I will see what the weather is like before I go. Have a Great Day and I hope my Sheltering Tree Fall creation reminds you of a Fall tree in your area!
