CCMC #23

Another card just because. This is my first time playing the Color Me creative challenge. I wanted to play with some of my new dies and a colour challenge was the perfect venue.  I needed to do something creative after a very stressful day.

The engine blew on my son's car on Sunday night when he drove back to Muskoka after dinner at our house. Talk about feeling helpless when he called at 10:30 at night that smoke was pouring out of the engine and he was almost 3 hours away. Thankfully I had just got him a CAA membership a few weeks back, so he got a tow.  Today I had his car towed here and my husband found a dealership on the other side of the city that can look at it.  So I called for another tow.  Now we wait to see what the damage is.

Okay back to my card. I die cut circled Scribbles in Coastal Cahanna, White and Basic Grey. Glued them to a white card base and decorated with some grey sequins and enamel dots.

Greta said...

I am loving those scribbles every time I see them & your card is one of the best, Tracey! I still remember trying to get home for Christmas break & my car broke down in a little Calif town. Of course it was night & we were 3 poor college kids who planned to sleep in the car until we could get a mechanic in the morning. The tow guy called his wife & told her he was bringing 3 kids home to sleep on the floor of their house. Wonder if that would still happen today. Glad your son was OK.

Michelle said...
