One for the Boys!

Happy Tuesday Dies R Us friends!
Tuesday means I, Darlene, have a creation to share with you using dies from Dies R Us!

Today I thought I'd make something non-girly!  
It's SO EASY to create for the ladies with all the beautiful flower dies, flourishes, etc. available ... 
but today I thought I'd 'go out on a limb' and create something a little more masculine.

OMG!  HOW CUTE ARE THESE DIES?

Dies I have used are:

Remember, if these items are 'out of stock' ... click on the
'Put Me On The Waiting List'
and you will be notified when they are once again available.

This little scene was so easy to create!  By simply using a scrap piece of white card stock, I created a sky by sponging on various shades of Tim Holtz blue distress inks.  Then cutting a 1/2" strip of DCWV 'gravel' pattern paper I created the 'road' for my truck/bulldozer to travel on.  Leaving enough room at the bottom of the paper for my sentiment.  I felt it was a little bare, so added the greenery to mimic tree branches and grasslands in the foreground.  So easy and so much fun!  

These little silhouettes are fabulous for creating any type of card for the 'little boys' in our lives ... or 'big boys' for that matter!  LOL!

Remember to stop back tomorrow for something Fun & Fabulous created by team member Sherri!
AND ... DON'T FORGET ABOUT OUR CHALLENGE BLOG!
You still have until May 13th to enter ... hope to see you there!
