Sassy Cheryl's Challenge for a Boy/Guy & DT Call

This week's newest Sassy Cheryl's challenge #170 is for a boy or a guy. I have four boys of my own and I find it difficult to make cards for boys. But Sassy Cheryl's images make it easier because they are just too darn cute! I chose to color up Ahoy Matey. Here is my take:
I kept the bathtub white because it reminded me of my grandma's tub when I was a kid. I used the following Copic markers on Xpress It Blending paper:
Other- C1,3,5,7, R05,Y26,28,13,18, B00,01,02
A few silver stickles, punches of red stars, and a shake of fairy dust and wa-la!

Today was the second day of summer school. I am teaching 5th,6th, and 7th grade science and math. The second day of summer school is always the hardest...reality sets in! I kept chanting to myself..."serenity now..." And not just as a teacher but as a mom of my 5 lovely kiddies. I practically screamed that today when my Georgie came running through the back door informing me he had made a new friend. A new friend?! That's great! Until he dangled a big ole' slimy earthworm in front of my face! I may have screamed something like, "Get that thing out of my house this minute!" Gosh, I love that kid! Earthworms...not so much!

So, in between fainting and corralling kids in and out of the house, I made another boy card. Sassy Cheryl is having a DT call and I thought why not!?! I enjoy making cards and coloring to my heart's content. Being a part of Sassy Cheryl's DT would make my life complete. ❤❤ No. Really. It would. I got my fingers (and 
my toes) crossed!
Well, that is all for now. Thank you my friends for stopping by. Have a great Wednesday!
