Gone to Pot


Well today's challenge at notimetostamp is Gone to Pot. Man oh man...if that ain't the truth I don't know what is. I tried on my bathing suit and it was way too friendly, it was hugging me like a second skin. Yikes where did all the poundage come from and whatever happened to that New Year's resolution..lose 20 pounds before swim suit time. Big joke huh??? Well I've heard of "pot bellied pigs" but don't like the idea of being a "pot bellied" old broad. I'm thinking my friend here has the same problem as me but she seems to be handling it pretty well. As for me, well I'm still thinking I have some time to shed the dread...oh foolish old woman. This is an Art Impression stamp just colored up with the infamous water colored pencils. Used my Nesties curved rectangles. If I had a phrase for this I'm sure it would be something like ...did you say I'm HOT instead of "lady you've gone to pot". Oh well ya gotta have some humor in life to keep it all together. I'm thinking maybe a girdle under the suit will do the trick what do you think???
Happy weekend to you all and if you have to try on a new bathing suit, try getting a new body first.

Oh Pat you are too funny!! Thanks for the laugh today!! Your card is adorable and I can certainly sympathize with your dilema!! I haven't put on a bathing suit in several years and it looks like this year will be the same!! I did however join Bally's Gym with a friend ... maybe by next summer I won't be too embarrased to put that suit on again!!

You are hilarious! And I totally love your take on the challenge. Like what you did with the old broad. Bathing suits are a very scary thing in my world, too. But the roses are blooming and smell heavenly, so it's not all bad to be me.
