You see, this week at Mo's Digital Pencil challenge our theme is "Tickle My Funny Bone". I knew right off the bat I wanted to use this little guy and I originally planned to give him a DeNiro line--"You talkin' to me?" Well the more I thought about the card the more I knew I had to go in a different direction with the sentiment because I realized just who was going to get this card.
We have the sweetest couple at our church who are expecting their first baby. When they found out they were pregnant the husband, who is quite a jokester, decided to have a bit of fun with his wife when they started talking about baby names. Now if you've spent any amount of time in the south you have heard some whopper names. This funny man suggested that if it was a boy, he would be named Boudreaux or Opie Dell. LOL His sweet wife put the skids on that, but he shared it with us at church one day and Boudreaux stuck. No matter that they picked out a very nice "normal" name, the baby is always referred to as Boudreaux. Poor little fellow is probably going to get stuck with that nickname for life. :-) One of the older ladies even presented papa to be with a tube of Boudreaux's Butt Paste! LOL Now if you don't know what that is, it's diaper rash medicine. His plan was to put it in a place of honor on the shelf he refinished for the baby's room, although he told me he had a sneaking suspicion momma wasn't going to leave it there. :-)
Thus the new sentiment was born. Momma might not leave the butt paste on the shelf, but she just might leave this card. LOL I think they'll both get a real kick out of it.
So what can you come up with to tickle our funny bone? You can head to Mo's shop if you want this little guy or use some other Mo's image to play along with our challenge. I have a feeling scrolling through the entries this week if going to be a lot of fun.
