Sisterhood of Crafters - Boys to Men

Hello Dear Friends!
It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Sisterhood of Crafters Blog
and Terri is today's hostess.  The theme she has chosen is:


It seems that all little boys like playing with trucks & dozers
and some of these 'boys' even grow up to operate this heavy equipment 
for their livelihood!  Not that the girls aren't doing that too mind you!  LOL

But today it's all about the GUYS and I realized I had three different sized dozers in my die cutting stash so that's the direction I took for today's card.  I hope you like it and will come join in our challenge fun!  We always find amazing inspiration from our challenge entries!

Challenges to share in:
Connie Can Crop Challenge #60 - Use Your Stash
Happy Little Stampers July Die Challenge - ATG with Dies

The sentiment is computer generated since I really didn't have anything that 'FIT' and the last section of this GEAR die was laying on the table just begging to be used (already cut from it twice for other projects lol).

Thanks for stopping by and as always . . .

Papers:  Royal Blue cs, white cs, brown cs, black cs, gold metallic cs, DCWV dp

Perfect guy card with the dozers and backhoe...and yep, my hubby is one of those 'men', since he owns two dozers and one, which I am sure you have seen him 'playing'!!

Only YOU would have three different dozers in your die stash! Boys and their toys for sure. This is great for a boy of any age! Love the gears and the tree with it, and your idea using the tags. Very creative!

FUN card, Darlene! I remember those toys in the kids' sandbox. Kept them busy for hours!! Your card is adorable and perfect for anyone who loves these "toys". I will have to start looking for cute stuff like this for my new push for more masculine cards.

My sons used to love Bob the Builder and they still have a fascination for it (they actually want to see the movie that just came out! LoL)! Perfect card for the challenge Darlene and that gear in gold was the perfect touch!

hahahaha yes, those are all boys' toys....and as they age they just get more expensive, right?!?! Fantastic masculine card, I love the gear accents too!
