Hug Me - CCC #65

Happy Tuesday!  Hope you all had a great weekend.  It was quiet at my house which is a blessing!  Gave me some time to play in my craft room.

If it's not one thing, it's something else.  I kind of had the feeling that the A/C in my car was not working properly over the last week or so and yesterday morning confirmed it.  No A/C on the way to work.  I took it by the dealer after work, but had to take it home and take it back this morning.  The car rental store at the dealer closed about 10 minutes before I got there.  Ugh!  Hopefully it won't be serious and I'll get it back before the long weekend.  I hate to have to have a rental car for that long.  

Well, today is Tuesday so it's Creative Card Crew day for a post and yet another masculine card.  Funny how they have all come about the same time.  The color is a little off in this.  The pennant and corner are more green than gray. 

I found a sketch that I liked over at My Favorite Things even though it's not current.
