What does the fox say?

For the longest time I had NO IDEA what the fox said or why anyone cared for that matter.  Call me clueless or uninformed, I just didn't get it.  It wasn't until my 7 and 4.5 year olds came home home from school singing the song that I actually googled it to see for myself.  What I found was a witty song that is really pretty great.  (I don't get out much.)  Still clueless as to what I'm talking about?  Click here

When I saw Sweet Stamp Shop's latest release, their Foxy set made me giddy.  Not because I am super trendy and need this stamp to feel cool.  Because believe me, I'm not one of those people.  About a week ago I made a baby blanket for my friend who is having her second son in a couple months.  Without showing you what it looks like because I haven't given it to her yet, just know that this stamp set goes perfectly with it.  I'll post pictures of the blanket after I give it to my friend, so for now you'll just have to settle for the card I made to give to her with it.

I used this week's sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge as the jumping off point.

 And here is the card I made:

I knew I wanted this card to have double-meaning.  I wanted it to be playful like the song, yet I wanted it to serve it's purpose.  If you look closely at the picture below, you can see that I stamped another speech bubble inside the card.  I layered one on top of it on the front of the card to hide that one.  

And this is what it looks like inside:

I really am in love with this card and can't wait to make more with this set.  Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time!
