Spandex or Sprints???


Well the Friday challenge at notimetostamp is cabin fever, so I'm guessing that means we are all anxious for spring.Well spring turns to summer very quickly and that means showing your body off in that horrible thing called a bathing suit. Now in order to get ready to do that you have to make a solid choice of what you want....fab or flab??? I vote for a full cover up spandex body suit to put under the bathing suit, then you go from wrinkles to smooth. Now it's not easy getting into those type get-ups and it usually takes up most of the afternoon's sun, but if you can manage, you've gotten at least a half hour of exercise and you're ready to show it all off. This is an Art Impressions stamp done totally plain with colored pencils.
Poor dear has a bit of a red face with that work-out...guess she hasn't heard about the spandex cover up yet. Even Oprah brags about having one...who would have guessed?
Happy weekend crafters. I'm going to the Lenten fish fry at the church to see if I can angle ( that's fish talk) a real smoothie to take the hubba hubba guy off my heels.

To cute Pat... love the image. I'm allergic to fish so during lent I usually eat pasta, hope you had a good time at the fish fry!

Cute card! That green makes me think spring, even if it feels like we live at the North Pole. Hope you had a hot time at the fish fry.

Columbia Club sponsors a fish fry each Friday of Lent from 5:30 to 7:00 on Grand Avenue. Last year they included some salmon and shrimp for added delight and variation. We missed Friday, but had fish at home for a yummy dinner using Wally World's steam in veggie bags of little boiler poes and green string beans. Yum Ym....no wind or icy roads to challenge late at night! Next Friday should be a Columbia club special meal weather permitting.
Card - Fisherman's wife in training for Lent? Great colors to engage emotions!! Fishy, too!
