InStyle Stamps Sneak Peek - Leroy and Boys Like Girls Thunder Video

Hey Friends! Just a video and a card for you today! This video is by Boys Like Girls called "Thunder". My daughter can play this song on the guitar and I' like to sing the lyrics while she plays it. By the way, I don't sing very well but I love this song! It kills my daughter and husband when I ask my daughter to play it on the guitar because they know that I'll start singing the song. Knowing that she could play it, I memorized all the words. LOL! Well, today I decided to listen to the song and I felt a little sad. . .a good sad because it brings back good memories of me and my daughter having a good time. . .I think this will be a song when I listen to it years from now will make me cry. Silly, I know. Do you feel that way with some songs. . .you know, you feel a little sad because it brings back good memories?

This is actually my second post for the day! I actually have another one today but I'll post it later in the afternoon! I actually have a back up of cards that I created and well, it's sort of piling up! Can you believe it? "Do you craft all day?". you ask. No, I don't! LOL! But, what I am getting good at is being focused. Lately I can whip up a card within half an hour! As long as I don't do anything but color and put the card together. If I do a technique, then it takes me longer.

Now to the card, it's sneak peak of InStyle Stamps Leroy! Whoohoo! Okay, Leroy is a cool dude for sure! Look at him dance. Kinda reminds me of Obama when he's dancing. . .don't you think? LOL! I'm not a "masculine card" kind of gal so I didn't know how to dress this card up without it looking girly so I went through my stash of scrabook embellishments and I had this "Jolee's Boutique" jukebox embellishment like FOREVER! I don't know. . .I buy a lot of stuff and I usually have a purpose for them. . .like way back when I bought them but then it sorta sits in a container. I then forget what I bought it for in the first place.


I thought it fitting for a guy card. I think I'll give this card to my husband for Father's Day. I should have colored his hair brown because my husband has brown hair but I wasn't thinking of him initially when I made this card.

I drew in the checkered floor to make it look like Leroy is at a diner boogying his butt off! LOL!

I colored the image with my Copic Markers and that's about it!

I love that you used the jukebox from Jolees to go with the retro stamp.

I enjoyed the song very much. It sounds as though your daughter has talent when it comes to playing guitar. As for crying at certain songs. yes, I do that. I think I cry because the happy time that the song reminds me of is only a memory now. A good memory but I misss the real moment.
