Hot August Nights (Vehicles) ~ SOUS Challenge

Happy Friday Friends! 
Today there is a new challenge going on over SOUS, the challenge is vehicles.  Last year I took Nicky & Joey over to the local firestation for their annual open house.  I thought the kids would get a kick out of it. 

For my title I used the LD Fat Jack font from the online Silhouette store. 
After placing title on my mat I used the Offset Selected Shape feature to create the shadow of the font.  I then made another copy of the title.  I then grouped all the letters together with the shadow together and welded them together to make a blacked out shadow of my font. 

I found this Fire Truck from the online Silhouette Store.  Isn't it the cutest?  I think it's just adorable.  The Fire Hat is also from the online Silhouette store.  I wanted to have two of the hats since each of my twins had their own hat.  So I put two of the fire hats on my mat, then I went to the replicate menu.  From the "Replicate menu" I selected one of the hats and clicked on "Mirror Left", that flipped the image of my hat. 

That's all I have for you today.  I hope you enjoyed my post today.  I hope you'll join us in the Vehicle challenge over at SOUS. 

Thanks for taking the time to stop by!
