Blue Boy

I finally had time to make another card. I'm practicing on making boy cards and I have to say its kinda tough. What can one put on a boy card? Girl cards are so much easier to make do to the fact that you can use lace, bows and flowers and when it comes to boy cards you basically have to stick to the nitty-gritty.
I've been saving free digital stamps into my computer week after week to use them on cards and today I finally got to use my first. The digi stamp comes from the lovely Anne over at Anne's "Cards 4 U". She's got some fabulous freebies and I suggest you go and check them out. I've been a follower of her's for a while now and I just love her work.
The design papers I used come from Diana over at Moshie's Moments. I won a huge blog candy from her a while back and these wonderful papers just happened to be part of it. The design of the card was also inspired by her. I used 2 of her card designs to make this card and I just love how it turned out. Thanks Diana for the inspiration.
The sentiment comes from Birds Cards. They've got loads of freebies and if you like freebies then head on over and snag them. I'm entering this card into the current challenges:
