Harvest Home Circle Card

It's almost Fall! And close to a full moon too. Weird things happen about this time. We're beginning to wonder if our house is a lightning magnet. It's the THIRD time now for our property to be struck.

We had a terrific thunderstorm go through last night. Along with almost 3 inches of rain in flash flooding, a bold of lightning hit our largest oak tree in the front yard. The trunk is damaged, but we hope to save it with a tree doctor's advice. Did I ever JUMP! See Jane. See Jane jump!

This morning we discovered none of our yard lights work, the garage door opener is fried, and our surround sound system is a gonner. Two circuit breakers were hit. The good thing is that our roof DOESN'T leak! Thank You, Lord.

I had just finished this "Harvest Home" card before turning everything off and heading to bed.

Tomorrow looks like it'll be a good Dontooning day at the lake after a call to our insurance company.

We're grateFUL.

I used:
Olivia paper packet, Harvest Home stamps, itty bitty brads, Autumn Terracotta & Garden Green inks, blending pen, circle card & envelope, chocolate ink for distressing edges

Wow...what an exciting life Jane leads : ) Sounds like quite a storm. Hope everything is up and running soon.
Your writing/journaling makes me smile!
And of course...beautiful, beautiful card!

You have the best attitude! I hope I could be as calm and able to see the blessings in the situation. I rather doubt it!

I will say that I'm thankful you weren't hurt. The tree could have fallen on the house, the electrical failures could have started a fire . . . so all in all, it's manageable.

Your circle card is so pretty!
