About A Boy

Helloooo! Are you still coming down off the high of yesterday's excitement? I hope everyone had fun with the hop and I can't wait to see what you create with the new stamps!

It's Farm Fresh Friday again! This week I got to try my hand at coming up with something fun to challenge and inspire you! I was thinking about how I naturally gravitate toward making cards with females in mind and how I would love to have more ideas for boy cards. So I thought of 'About A Boy.' Anything boy-friendly that you would give to a male; not just to use a male stamp, but actually want to give it to a male. LOL! Jess came up with the no flowers rule and I think that's totally appropriate because I don't know if boys like cards with
So, I actually came up with two cards for you!! Here I thought I was void of all "boy" mojo but then once I made one I decided to go right ahead and make another!

The first card uses a digi that's available by new TGF artist Janet McDonnell and it's called Josh's New Guitar. I'm definitely finding my way around the digi world these days and getting a little more comfortable playing with digital images. This one is super fun and totally rockin for 'boy' cards!

The second uses an oldie but a goodie, Quarterback Ian! And I just HAD to color him up with Seahawk colors. Woot woot! I found this super cute paper too that is appropriately called All About I just had to use that, even though I had to cut most of it down to fit the scale of the card! So sad. But a fun card to make nonetheless!

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you'll play along in the FFF challenge!!
Have a great weekend!

Wonderful work! How do you print your digi's? Do you use cardstock in the printer? Thank you for the masculine cards, I will have to try my hand at them.
