A Boy Is. . . .

I made this card today using Summertime Boy Baseball from Karen's Doodles. How perfect is this image for a summertime card!! A boy dirty from playing baseball with of course that must needed frog in his pocket. I even found a great poem online that works so perfectly with this image. It says:

A Boy is....
Trust with dirt on it's face,
Beauty with a cut on it's finger,
Wisdom with bubble gum in it's hair,
and the hope of the future
with a frog in it's pocket.
