Crossed wires and bad communication.

My son had a thought this morning whilst finishing his first hypothesis for his geography course work, he said out of the blue 'Can you make me 2 thankyou cards for my geography teacher and T.A. to say thanks for all the help they've given me with my course work mum please?' I was a little taken back by the request when he was in mid chunter to himself, but any excuse to have a reason to do a few challenges so off I set.
Here is the first I came up with and I was really pleased with myself.

The layout was done from the sketch over at cute card thursday #93 and I think it worked really well , although I perhaps should have made my first layer the brown striped daisy paper slightly wider but theres always room for improvement next time. It transfered really lovely to the inside of the card too.

The colour scheme is for the challenge at Play date cafe #10 who have a theme of turquoise, brown and dusky pink hope my pink is the right shade!?

Stamp something have a theme of use new somethings, well I didn't get any craft stuff for christmas as my lovely hubby got me a computer all for me just so I can blog whenever I want so I couldn't say I wanted more, but just before christmas I did buy some new stamps from funky kits and this is one I haven't yet used so I think it will count as new something.

Crazy for challenges have a theme of polka dot fun, so as I used dotty paper hopefully this will count for their challenge.

I took the card to show my son and see if he approved and just like a man said ' Oh yeh thats really good, whats it for?' I suggested it was what he'd asked for and he looked quizically and said 'What?' , I replied a thankyou card for your geography teacher. He looked at me and said 'I wanted them to be geography themed and I don't need them till next month when the coursework is done.'
My son is 15 nearly 16 and yet he already has the expectation that all women can mind read and know what he is thinking. He wasn't like that 6 months ago but does seem to have grown up alot over the last 6 months but I never realised that the man thing happened despite what you try to do to prevent it. I suppose he did at least try to be nice and told me its a really good card but... so something might have sunk in over the years...but how long will it last?

Have a good evening and hope you don't get too much snow, hopefully the weather forcast will be wrong.
