Car Nightmare

Isn't it a nightmare when you go to buy a car? Not necessarily, I know... It could be a little stressful when gathering information to make the right choice according to budget and needs... but it should also be fun. And when you finally have decided to buy the car, then you should be happy, don't you?

Well... my mom has had a horrible experience. She went for a used car because she cannot pay a high monthly debt, so after some research, she bought a used car. Then the very first week she had problems with it and had to return it to the dealer...

Long story short... she has been given about 5 cars as replacement in the last two months while the dealer "fix" the car she bought and she has been paying to the bank.... What a nightmare...

Finally, after some fights... she ended up with a new car, and a debt I'm not really sure how she will be able to pay... :(... what a crazy end!

Anyway... it's a stressful situation... and I admit I can sometimes be unhelpful, since when she tell me about these things I also get frustrated and would love to help, but you know... there are some things I cannot decide for her. So it's been tough...

And since finally she has her car, that hopefully won't give her any problems, I made her this card...





The card can look kind of childish, but knowing her... she'll love it! Since she has had several cars of different colors lately, I cut these from "Graphically Speaking" cartridge, with the Cricut Expression.

The road is totally handmade paper piecing... I did want to have the childish look for her...

And the sentiment means "Smile". And I have to say... she's awesome... Even though she has struggled in all this process... she's always smiled and made fun about the fact that she has had more cars than anyone else in such a short amount of time!!!! LOL!


Have you had a bad experience when buying a car? How about a house, or maybe any other simple article that you've had to return endlessly? Tell me about it friend... be imperfect and tell me... :)

Edel, que lindo de tu parte hacerle una tarjetita para que lo que le paso fuera mas llevadero.
Me tuve que poner a mirar la carretera. A mano, pero perfecta. Un abracito a tu mami, y que se disfrute su carrito (espero que sea de los que gastan poca gasolina, ya que tiene que hacer el pago).
