Dig This

So . . . masculine cars are kind of tough, right?  But little boy cards are FUN!!!  My nephew is turning 2 this weekend and I made this ADORABLE card for him.  
 I used a stripe stencil with a sharpie marker for the stripes.  And I used a stencil for the brick background as well. (I don't think I've ever used stencils so much).  I added an ink splat stamp to make "mud" spatters.  Don't you love those construction vehicles???!!!  So cute!  Here's a picture of the inside:
I just had to use one of the other trucks on the inside as well.  Couldn't leave any of them out. : )

Supplies:
Stamps: YNS "Keep on Trucking" and "Large Ink Splatter"
Stencils: MFT "Diagonal Stripes" and "Small Brick Wall"
Dies: Spellbinders "Classic Circles, large"

Awww Heather this is adorable!!!! You are right, little boy cards are so fun to make and so much easier than adult male cards. This is so cute, little dirt dumped everywhere, love it! I hope your nephew has a great birthday party. This is the fun age, they are just learning to do more and enjoy things. .... my nephew just turned 2 on the 16th and we had his party on the 17th. He too, is so into all trucks, cars and trains. Happy birthday to your little nephew! Have a great weekend!
Hugs,
Jo
