I Need My Mummy…

I felt the title of Mo’s image was as good of a name for my post as any other I might choose.  I think he is so adorable.  He reminds me of a little boy on a show I used to watch eons ago (Family Affair). It was about a bachelor who had to take in his nieces and nephew after the death of their parents; the youngest were twins and the little boy’s name was Jody.  He was a little redhead and his facial expression looks so similar to this little guy.


My grandson loves dinosaurs and I thought of him when I bought these papers.  Somewhere I’ve hidden some some of my “little boy” decorations, so I had to make my own.  I fussy cut two of the dinosaurs and pop-dotted one on the other.  

On the Inside I decided to fussy cut a couple more of the dinosaurs to decorate the pages.

I’m entering this in the following challenges:

Prairie Fairy Fridays - boys

Well that’s that for me for the time being.  I hope you’ve enjoyed my card.  I appreciate all of the comments I receive and I love to stop by when I can to leave them at your site, too.

Full House:)! You did an amazing job coloring him up and the DP is perfect and I love the little tricerotops! Thanks for joining us at MMCS this week, good luck and hope you'll join us again.

What a great card! I love the paper you've used, and the embossed 'dinosaur skin' is perfect! Glad you joined us in Mo's Challenge.
(I can remember the show, too, but can't recall the name. The butler's name was Sebastian, and the little girl, Jody's twin, had a doll she called Mrs. Beasley.)

Iulia said...

Gorgeous boy attitude Debbie! Love this image and your coloring is fabulous! Also you chose such lovely papers, really perfect to account for the lil one's expression:) And the embossed panel works so well with the rest!
Thank you so much for sharing your creativity with us in Mo's challenges!
Hugs, Iulia

Cute,cute card. Great coloring. The name of the show was Family Affair. Brian Keith played the part of Uncle Bill. The name of the oldest girl was Sissy and the twins were Buffy and Jody. Loved the show.

Hi DJ,
Gosh what a great card! You have coloured him so very beautifully - I love the play of light on his face and pyjamas as if he is standing in a doorway... and Ilove the embossing too and the fab papers. Hugs, Teresa x
