Working Around the House

My hubby has been doing some work around the house recently and I couldn't help but colour this little guy up so he could help out - LOL. This is "Fixer Boy" by Mo Manning. I do tend to struggle with boy's cards - my fingers itch to pop on a few flowers, but my 13yo son is my voice of reason and he gave this the thumbs up!

My daughter also had some input - she told me to "dirty up" his overalls - I think she's seen too much of her father's work clothes to think overalls should ever be clean - LOL.

Copics used - Skintones (R20, R11, E11, E00, E000) plus B99, B97, B95, B93, B91, B0000, YG17, YG05, YG03, YG01, C4, C2, C00, E49, E43, E42, E40, E37, E35 E33, E31, E30, YR23, Y19, R08
