Bugaboo Stamps: Skelekinz | Cupcake Stroller

I was standing in line at Starbucks (Where else?), when someone passed by with a phone or MP3 player turned up. The song was "Pictures of You" by The Cure.

Have you ever been going about the business of living when something (a sight, a sound, a smell) takes you completely out of where you are deep into a memory? The whole experience is so visceral that you feel like you're right there seeing, feeling, being in that moment?

And then the barista asks for your order, and it's suddenly over. You're confused, you're drained, and despite the fact that that the memory is a happy one, you still feel loss and sadness?

What any of that has to do with Bugaboo Stamps' new release is simply beyond me, but there it is. Hmm, perhpas it's why I chose to create a very black, (very eeeky-shrieky, spooky-kooky, vampy-trampy. . .;)) project with our new Skelekinz set rather that our new Skye's Bears collection. . .;)


Supplies: Bugaboo Stamps image, The Paper Company card stock, Autumn Leaves designer paper, Copic markers, Prismacolor markers, ??? ribbon, Hero Arts embellishments, A Muse Art Stamps embellishments, The Paper Studio embellishments, Sweet Sketch Wednesday sketch.

Challenge: Sweet Sketch Wednesday #86.

I know exactly what you mean about memories coming back all of a sudden because of a music or a smell... They are bitter sweet moments when you remember the happy time and at the same time feel sad because it is over... Anyway, your card is simply gorgeous ! I love the splash of green lime bringing to life the black and the red ! Amazing work ! Lots of hugs and love from Catherine

Hi Rae Anne, Yes, I have been there and done that one. And as happy as those moments can be, you do go away a little sad. Your card is sooo cute and I am really going to have to go check out the new images. This one is super cute! I love your color scheme and fun take on the sketch. Nice to have you join us!
