Forgetful SPARKS?

I haven't played along with the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge for quite a while, but I really like this week's Designer Drafts sketch challenge: 

I made my card the day the sketch was revealed. Wait, what's that you say? It's Thursday now? I know, sigh. The day after I made the card, I gave it away, and you know the old saying about out of sight, out of...? Last night I remembered I needed to get my card entered, and realized I never did photograph it. :( A few texts, an iPod photo appeared, and my work can be displayed! 

For reasons that a professional could likely shed some light on, the sketch made me think of scenes in old movies with split screens showing two of the characters talking on the phone. So I have my dog and my birdie characters! Add some colouring, some patterned paper, a few Paper Smooches dies, and done. 
Along with SPARKS, I'm going to add this card to Simon Says Stamp's current Anything Goes challenge. 

Supplies: white & American Crafts yellow textured cardstock, My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Fly a Kite & Echo Park Country Drive patterned papers, Paper Smooches Woofers and Tweeters stamps & dies, Versafine onyx black ink, Wow clear embossing powder, Paper Smooches Borders 1 & Clouds dies, distress markers, yellow Sharpie, pop-dot tape

Pin It Now!

I see the old movie connection but sorry can't shed any light on why our minds work that way! Your card does tell a little story with that layout and sentiment.

LOL! A professional could shed light on, hmm? I often think professionals would be scared of my brain ;)
I happen to love this card - I can totally see the connection! And me too, out of sight out of mind. Glad I'm not alone in that!

Oh, Lindsey, I'm so glad you were able to get a photo of this adorable card from the recipient and share it with us! If I can have a hamster living in my head, you can have your pooch and birdie "talking" to each other like in the old-fashioned split movie screen shots!! Very creative! (Adore those clouds!) Hugs, Darnell
