BBQ Summer Goose - CCC #68

Hi friends, and happy Tuesday!

If it's not one thing, it's something else!  :(  Still having issues with the A/C in my car.  It's back in the shop for the 4th time since early July.  Let's hope this time they get it right and I won't have to take it back again for this problem.  So now, I come home from work tonight and the A/C in my house is on the fritz! :(  And I just bought a total protection home warranty for my house, but it does not go into effect until Wednesday.  :(  What can I say, except Drat!!!

Can't do anything about it tonight, so I guess I'll get on with my card and hope that things will be better tomorrow with the car fixed and the A/C fixed without too much $$ and trouble.

Our theme for Creative Card Crew this time is Embossing - either wet or dry - your choice.  Here is my card.

  1. Ha! Cute image! Love him against the embossed background. Really gives it an outdoor look, like a patio wall. And then there's the fancy lattice corner which adds to the patio look, as well. Very clever! So sorry to hear about your A/C again! This is not a good time for that to happen. I do hope it is fixed soon.

  2. So cute! I love the embossing and the die cut on the upper right.

  3. This isn't your usual type of card but I LOVE it!!! So precious and that goose is adorable.
