One for the Boys!

Happy Tuesday my friends!
Tuesday means another Dies R Us Inspiration creation to share!
Have you been over to visit the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog?  Oh please do ... so much inspiration shared Monday - Friday!  And don't forget about the new Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  New challenges every 1st and 15th of the month with a Gift Voucher to Dies R Us store to one lucky person each challenge.
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 'give a go' at something a little more masculine.
What do you think?


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!

Here are a few additional challenges to share in:
Lexi's Creations Challenge - One for the Men/Boys in your life.
My Craft Creations - Anything Goes
