Everybody's a critic

My most beloved hubby went out for a drinks with a friend yesterday, leaving me with kids. That's OK, the friend was over from Finland and they hadn't had a night out for ages(mainly due to young kids on both sides).

I promised to give the friend lift home after they came from a pub so stayed awake until they finally arrived arouind 1.30 in the morning and then for another hour while they were having a drink and watching photos. That was OK as well, I had promised.

Then my other half found the card I had made for Sugar Bowl challenge (cards for men). My hubby gave it a long look and announced that the title of the book the boy is reading is on the back cover, what's that about. We argued a bit if there's any sensible explanations or if it's weird or not. Then his friend came from the toilet and was promptly presented with the card by me hubby asking if he can see anything wrong with it.

The friend didn't see anything wrong with a book. Instead he said: "That's a weird-looking dog. Why does it have pink eyes?"

It's CHEEKS people, alrite. And they're not even that pink!
Thanks for looking!

Men!!!! I am actually sat here laughing which is terribly mean but it is a funny story - poor you hun!
I love your card babe and I have all my faculties about me today :o)
Hope you have a fab weekend
ps I am actually a really slow card maker too - usually takes me a full evening to make one card, I just have to live in my craft room to get them all done - this is why I never get the chance to enter any challenges myself :o(
