Is "chocolate" an attitude?

Oh, yea...most definitely!! hehehe!!

Hey there my lovelies!! It's Thursday already...and that means it's Mo time!! Yep...time for another fun challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog! I'm delighted that my sweet and talented DT sister, Iulia, has chosen this week's fabulous theme...

Boy Attitude!

Soooooo...here's what I came up with...


When I first saw this adorable image by our very own friend and talented artist, Mo Manning, I wondered...boy? or girl? Well...I've decided...either!! Perfect, huh?! So, since I wanted to make a birthday card for my youngest son, I colored the overalls denim...and the shirt and socks lime green...and Voila!!...an adorable "boy" card for Adam, my sweet 33 year-old "baby boy"!! (Adam used to have hair that looked just like this when he was a little guy...and he always woke up with "bed head"! Hehehe!! Soooo cute!!!)


This darling image is called "Chocolate Smile" and is available at Mo's Digi Store HERE. I used Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip cardstock from Stampin' Up...I love the way these colors complement one another and these gorgeous DPs from DCWV's "Flower Shower" Spring collection.


Here's a list of the Copics I used....
E21, 00, 000, 0000: Skin
R20: Cheeks
E 35, 31, 53, 51, 50, & YR20: Hair
B97, 95, 93, 91, & Colorless Blender: Blues
YG25, 23, 21, 000: Shirt & socks
E23, 21, 50: Candy bar
W1, 0, 00: Shadow

That cute sentiment on the front is from Inkadinkado...and the sentiment on the inside came from Stampin' Up. Hardware and ribbon are also from SU.

Now....it's time to visit Mo's Challenge Blog and take a peek at the gorgeous creations by Iulia & the rest of our talented DT!! Now...it's time to start working on your own card or 3D paper project!! Remember, you must use at least one Mo Manning image (available HERE and HERE) to qualify for this week's random drawing for a free Mo Manning digi of your choice!!

And...that's it for me, my darlins! Thanks for stopping by...and thanks so much for your kind comments that truly make me smile from ear to ear!! Have a great week crafting!! Until next time....Mwahhhhhh!

First, I agree with the sentiment and the fact that this image is a boy/girl or girl/boy.
The way you made this card it is defenitly a boy. Love the use of buttons, the clips on the image and the way you fastened the ribbon.

We all know the world just can't contain enough chocolate - whether you're a boy or a girl!!! This is so darned cute, Pat! I love the way you've handled the 'guy' theme with buttons and the SU hardware with just enough ribbon to make it a real card!!! hehehe Love the little Hershey's Kiss stamp on the inside! Great birthday card...hugs...Barb

Iulia said...

Hi, Pat; this is utterly adorable sweetie, didn't cross my mind this cutie here was a boy...lol, but seeing him colored, he he...might be just as well. Are boys chocoholic too? This means I should be hiding my provisions from now on- on a top shelf somewhere:)
Delicious card, love the boy embellies:)
Hope you are enjoying your Caribbean trip, no matter the rain!
Sending hugs across the globe:)
