Such an Attitude!

Oh, Boy!

Iulia is our hostess this week, and she's asked us to make cards or projects that show a boy's attitude!

I've used Mo's "William and Jeffrey" for my card. I think this exhibits an attitude of mutual love and admiration, which our boys felt for each other when they weren't killing each other! LOL!
I found this image on an old site of Mo's and immediately shot her an email to ask  her to make it available as a digital image. She graciously agreed! The image is from a manuscript she did probably twenty years (or more) earlier. I thought that was interesting, because the kids' clothes don't look dated at all! She says there are more of this cute duo, but she has yet to locate the drawings. I'll be waiting!

Images: "William and Jeffrey" with the sentiment from Mo's Digital Pencil

Tools: Copics, Prismacolor pencil, MS Zig-zag border punch, Sponge dauber

Papers: SU! Soft Suede, Yo-yo Yellow, Neenah smooth white, Basic Grey DP

Embellishments: Grosgrain ribbon, Brad, Buttons

Now grab one of Mo's fabulous little boy images and join us in Mo's Challenge for a chance to win a free image of your choice! We're also looking for another Guest Designer, so, if you're interested, just a be sure to label your entry with the letters "GD".

So happy you dropped in!

Such an adorable card. I like the saying you added to it too. That is a precious sentiment. Love the papers and embellishments you used.

Wonderful creation. :)

Hi Elaine! Sorry I'm just now getting around to commenting on your sweet, sweet card! It brought tears to my eyes when you said this Mo image looked like your boys when they weren't trying to kill one another! Funny...I have 2 boys who fit that desciption too!! They're adults and they still bicker...but I know they would do anything for one another!! Your card is sooooo sweet...and your coloring is perfect! And what a fun story about this image!! Hugs.
