Dirt Rides - Clear Dollar Stamps

Have you seen the new Clear Dollar Stamps set called "Dirt Rides"? What a fun masculine/outdoor sports set! The main images are a dirt bike & four wheeler. It also includes the coordinating phrases like: "Ride On", "Off Road", and "Gnarly". Here's my first creation using this fun set. I had to dirty up my paper with the ink to make it look more outdoorsy. Oh what fun indeed!

Back in Barrow just about everyone had at least one running four wheeler. Riding a four wheeler in the arctic is not for the faint of heart that's for sure. SO COLD! The most practical use for four wheelers up there was for either getting yourself to and from work or to go out on the tundra hunting. Most often the kids would roam town on their four wheelers stirring up the dust. Here in Oregon for us right now the most practical use would be to go off road in search of downed trees for fire wood and for getting muddy. My husband wants one really bad. He envisions himself doing odds and ends around the property with it, hunting, and playing off road. For now he's gonna have to settle for owning this wonderfully fun "Dirt Rides" four wheeler from CD Stamps. This four wheeler is a whole lot less maintenance, gasoline free, and is within our budget. ;-)

Hi nancy! That is one cool man card! Wow, the coloring is fantastic and the big letter dry embossed looks so cool too! Love the fold style as well. Terrific design! I know what you mean, most rural folks in TX have a 4-wheeler or gator or rhino for property "survey" too....
