Sailor Edwin ~ Sketch Saturday #118

Happy Saturday! As you read this, I am probably sweltering on a soccer field watching one of my boys in a play-off game! LOL! I am scheduling this post Friday night in anticipation of a very early and frantic morning! My eldest is volunteering at the luncheon stand, my hubby is the coach for both of the younger boys’ teams and me…….I am a Soccer mum. I get to do all the running around in between the fields!

My card for this week’s Sketch Saturday features the very sweet if somewhat sad looking Edwin Sailor. Looks like he had to be rescued! Originally this was to be for my eldest son as he was going to sit his Blanche 3 levels in sailing. The theory was going to be a piece of cake for him but because he did two levels last year and is quite a skinny little guy it wasn’t likely that he could pass one part of the practical. He theoretically needed to be 75lbs in order to flip the size of sailboat that is for this level. Meaning he had to tip the boat, fall out, get back in and flip it back by himself. Soaking wet with bricks in his two pockets he doesn’t weigh 75lbs so I had made this card to hopefully cheer him up. Well, we didn’t count on his determination and perhaps a little help from a strong breeze………he did it! The instructors were so surprised but delighted for him and he had the biggest smile on his face when he told us his news! So this card is for sale over on Ebay! I don’t need it! LOL!
