Thank You TH Vehicle Emb Card

Created this Thank You card for the service man at the Honda dealership. I took my car in Tues to have routine maintenance done & have the steering checked. They found a leak in the steering power seed block and the fluid was building up in what is called a 'dust boot.' They told me that w/ both the Japanese which mine is & US made Honda CRVs they have to put in all new parts. Cost is $2,000+. I found my warranty paperwork and luckily I have the extended warranty that is for 84 mths or 80,000 miles whichever comes first. Well my Honda CRV is a 2007 and only has slightly above 40,000 miles and was bought in 2006. Driven the car out of the TX state only twice; once to KC, MO and once to FL. The steering including the front end alignment is all covered. A huge relief!

Used mostly Tim Holtz items. Used a sketch which you can see below. It does not look pink like photo may look but instead is reds.

  12. What a story! I don't know which I enjoyed more: reading about your auto adventure or looking at this fantastic card! I really like how you turned the patterned paper into a unique element by cutting out the star in the circle and using it as an accent. Really love this and hope the service man at the dealership liked it, too! It is probably tacked up on their bulletin board wall of fame! Thanks again for sharing this with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
