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.

This is SO fun and SO cute, Tracy! I love that you played with that funny name story to create this adorable card for them! Such a funny little image. Love the cloud paper background and the strips of paper, too. You used the most perfect papers and colors for a baby boy design!
Funny story! Your card is sure to tickle their funny bone. Your coloring and card design are fabulous.
I’m stopping by from MIM. (I’m entries 70 & 157)
Tracy what a stunning image , beautifully coloured what a fantastic card I love this one
WELL DONE !
Funny story and super cute card, Tracy! The image is adorable and as always, you've colored him perfectly!
Tracy! This card is hysterical! I thought that name really was a baby's name!! I've heard some pretty interesting names since I moved to Virginia! hehe! I almost wet myself laughing when I read your post! hahaha! Love the Butt Paste part of the story! This little guy's parents will cherish this card forever, I have no doubt!! Hugs. Pat Frank
Lol! This is AWESOME! Love the layout and colors...and of course your sentiment!
Thank you so much for joining us at Make it Monday this week! For a chance at a second prize, don't forget to leave a comment for another entry and mention you saw them on MIM! Good luck,
lol Tracy that is great. Hehe what a cute name - I'll bet she'll be happy with that! ;) hehe The background works perfectly with this...adds a nice touch! :D
I love your little baby image and card! The sentiment steals the show for me because my husbands nickname from his family is that as well! When I found that out I had a real hoot!
Such a Beautiful card Tracy.. Saw this on MIM..Loz
Such a great story that matches your beautiful card Tracy, this little chap is way too cute! Love him! Hugs, Ira
What a fun story and such a fun card to go with it. Love this little guy and your gorgeous layout too.
You crack me up.. Got to love this. what a great card!
Love the story of the name, I hope he doesn't get saddled with it poor little fellow... But your card is so cute, love the red, white and blue. I am sure it will replace the butt cream.
Very cute and fun card and a fun story too!
This is so cute and adorable that image is a little treasure, the colours and design look super, thank you for joining our challenge at The Paper Shelter this week.
I loved our fun story and I love your fun card. Your friends want to be careful. I have friends who named their baby bump lollipop and by the time she was born they just couldn't get that out of their heads so that's what she's called!
I think its a fabulous name. Mind you Boudreaux has a certain ring to it...Bou for short! Hugs, Lesley
I kinda like the name Beau...romantic and very southern. Adore your card,, Tracy...it'll become part of their family story. Awesomenesss all around. Hugs, Kathy
Wonderful card, Tracy, and a cute story, too! This is a card the family will chuckle over for years to come!
Oh thats awesome Tracy! The story and the card! Nicknames do stick, my daughters nickname that she received as a baby (Tweety) has lasted her 14 years now and in fact it was a bit if a shock when she went to school and they had to call her by her "real" name. She hardly knew it and didn't like it at all!(Kiara)
What a great card - I love it. What a great keepsake even if the nickname isn't for keep!
Thanks for joining us at CYDA for our For Children Challenge. Hope you stop by again soon.
Hahahaha...someone should make a shadow box of the butt paste and your card and hang it up. That is toooo funny Tracy!!! I'm certain the young child will be born with an outstanding name, but it's always wonderful to have a nickname. Ain't it Hick?
Your card is beyond adorable and now that we know it's inspiration, all the more better!
I can't even remember how to spell that name you mentioned..LOL..good thing they won't be picking that one.
Have a great weekend,
This is just the cutest "Tickle" card and story Tracy, I can see this card coming out for his 21st birthday party with the story retold a dozen times.....lol
Love it and love the image and detail on it.
huge hugs Mau Xx
