You Rock

a few months ago my husband & older son built a Bass Guitar, my son designed the body himself, chose the paint color & wanted snakeskin graphics on it... while I'm not that good of an artist to draw snakeskin on this stamp, I did go with orange for my boy.

Here's the Bass Guitar my guys built... excuse the clothes, it was Christmas morning and we just wear jammies & sweats.  He got this new Amp so he brought the Bass down to rattle the windows for a test run... success!


  1. These are fantastic! Really loving the color combo! Thanks for playing along this week with the Tuesday Morning Sketches team!

  3. Wow...built a guitar? That's impressive!! I can barely build a sandwich. ;)
    Awesome job on these cards Paula. Love that drip border at the bottom!

  4. How fun these are -- you did a great job on the cards -- the burst stamp behind the guitar player is perfect. Thanks for sharing your picture of your son with that fantastic guitar -- the guys did a great job on the guitar too.

  5. I love your cards and your story, how fun!

    Thanks for playing in our OWH Midweek Throwdown challenge!

  6. What a great idea for inspiration! Love the card and the way it pops!

  9. Love the cards- and how each boy is colored a little different! Perfect boy cards! And wow- I am in awe- they BUILT a guitar? I could not even play one if my life depended on it! True talent!

  10. What a great post! These cards are just terrific and will be perfect for the boys. I find making cards for teen boys particularly difficult to do. I predict these will be snatched right up by some heroes with boys.

  11. What a rockin' fun card! Thanks for joining us at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

  12. Really cool card and super cool that your son built a guitar!
