Lightsabers...


Morning Muffins.

Very Understanding Hubby has a new phone. It took a while to persuade him to ditch the old, knackered one. It's one of these all singing, all dancing things with a touch screen, (want it!) that you can download on to.

Very Understanding Hubby, being a bloke, is typically afflicted with The Star Wars Disorder, (don't get me started on films which don't run in chronological order...!) so he was very excited when I downloaded a Lightsaber App for him. I promptly lost interest and forgot about it, disappearing into The Bat Cave.

Not long after, there was a Lightsaberish noise behind me, along with various Star Wars themed quotes. I grabbed the nearest thing to hand and brandished my N9 SketchMarkerSword, so battle against The Dark Side could commence. It was a a giggle! Sweet Cheeks was a bit bemused by it all though!


Anyway, this is Frankenstein Boy, one of the new releases from Squiggle Stamps. Don't forget there's still time to enter the current Spooky Halloween Fun Challenge over at Squiggles and Giggles. And if you use a Squiggles Image, you can add an extra entry.

Right, must go and charge up my N9 SketchMarkerSword...

Hiya Fluffy. Wot is it about blokes and bloody Star Wars!!
Don't get me wrong, I am the biggest film buff going and love my films (I have a 500+ dvd/blu ray ollection) only last night I watched Shawshank Redemption....but please Star wars is bonkers, boaring, daft, not in the right order!! (whats all that about!) but the men in our life love it!! Ok give 'em that one then!
Your card is just gorgeous, I love the Monochrome look, the mage is super. Debbiexx

Jane said...

Sorry...way too much information. Not interested in your husbands 'light-saber' & where he swishes it. Some things should be kept private!!!

Fiona said...

Apparently when filming the silly "new" Star Wars Ewan McGregor had to be told that he didn't need to make the "schoooom" noise with his light saber when he was fighting! The Boy Wonder ADORES Star Wars - you've got it all to come with SC! Love your mono card - the colouring is really clever. xx

Hey Faye you have a hubby with taste, Star Wars is brilliant, well the first three were not so keen on the new ones. I used to have the Stars Wars music, wallpaper and a phone case when I had an old Nokia phone, I was sad to see it go, lol. Anyway I digress, I love, love your card that image is a cutie and what fantastic colouring a superb card.
