What Are Little Boys Made Of?


Hey y'all,

I wanted to share a card with you that I made for the Moxie Fab "Stamping with Markers" Challenge. I used another digital image (Mr. Snail) from Jane's Doodles that you can find here! 

I wanted to let you in on a secret about the cool font I used in the background. I recently started following a blog titled "79 ideas" by Radostina. She is so creative and her blog is full of ideas, photographs and inspiration to get your juices flowing. She had a post awhile back where she shared free downloads of this particular font called peach sundress. How cute is that name? I downloaded the font for free and have been using it ever since.

I opened up my Microsoft Office and typed the nursery rhyme "What are little boys made of?" over and over again to create a background stamped image. Once I was happy with the placement, I printed it out on kraft paper and used it as my card base. So simple, a blond like me could do it! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit and I hope some of you are able to use this free download on a card of yours. If so, please leave a comment with your post. I would love to check it out.
