I Want To Feel That Galactic Thrill

Blogland has been responsible for bringing a few ladies together this week but although sadly I was not one of them, I did have a 'virtual' meet-up with Clare, Helga and PicMonkey genius Curtise.

Don't we all look fab-u-larse ?    Lovely Curtise has sent me step by step 'how to' instructions for this procedure, it's bound to have some techy name but don't be asking me!  Not that I will be snapping myself this week as I look like a bag of shite, full of cold and bucketfuls of snot and feeling very sorry for myself indeed.  Although a couple of nice things happened yesterday to cheer me up. I received some lovely congratulatory comments about my 'scallop' card which has been 'showcased' at Less Is More and down at the nursery I just happened to ask if they had any hardy Osteospernums (can't get 'em anywhere) and the kind lady said she had four cuttings of her own and gave me two of them....for the grand sum of 50p!  

On to this week's challenge at LIM which is One Layer and Film inspired theme.   

The butterfly stamp which I masked, is by SU and the papillon text is by Isabelle Morris for Katzelkraft.I used earthy coloured inks for this one - Vintage Sepia, Pistachio and Desert Sand.

I was hoping to get in the garden this afternoon for some long overdue tidying up but it's peeing down so now I'll be forced to curl up on the sofa in front of the idiot box and work my way through a man-size box of tissues. 

My sixteen year old self viewed this dance routine as quite raunchy at the time, now it seems dreadfully tame.....not one of Arlene's triumphs I fear.

 Acknowledgments to Curtise for the fab photo above and to Clare and Helga for appearing without first giving their consent!


  1. That's a brilliant virtual blogger meet-up. I'm very envious of Clare's marabou knickers!
    Isn't it miserable? It was lovely this morning so I managed the first car boot sale of the year but this afternoon's vile. Feel better soon! x

  2. Ha, if I had that body I might be tempted to wear that bikini!
    I told you I was addicted to doing these, time-consuming though they are...
    Oh dear, poor you, hope you feel better soon, Fiona. Well done for having your card showcased, and yay for cheap cuttings!
    Lovely papillon card. Now get a Lemsip, or even better, a hot toddy, and remember, love - hand in hand, we'll conquer space! xxxx

  4. I hope you feel better soon. S'posed to be warm tomorrow (depending where you are) so that should help?
    Loved the video! Thigh high boots are always raunchy, even if the dancing is quite funny! x

  5. Lol, great post again Fiona!

    Hope you feel better soon - no wonder you're full of cold, prancing round in your knickers like that - what d'ya expect!!
