Dies R Us Challenge Time

Happy February Everyone!

It's time for a new challenge over at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog and with Valentine's Day being right around the corner, our theme today is:

XOXOXOX - Hearts, Love, Valentines

I hope you find inspiration in what I've created today ...
I know I had a lot of fun making it!

The dies I've used are:

Cheapo Dies - Loads Of Love

Impression Obsession - Dies - Love You Heart

I have die cut the 'Love You Heart' from both black card stock and red card stock then inter mingled the two for added dimension.  Also used the word LOVE over one of the larger polka dots & some of the little hearts on other large polka dots as my embellishments.

How about this fun Truck Load of Love ... isn't it awesome!
After loading the truck down with hearts (see how the backend of the truck sits lower?  lol) you couldn't really see where one heart ended and one began so I decided to use a fine point black marker and do some hand stitching on each heart for definition.

A silver Pilot Marker was used to create the silver fenders & running board
as well as the hub caps.

I hope you will come join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.  For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below. 

  Hope to see you there!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
As always . . .
