I Gotta Lie Down!

Just me again...  this is my second post for today, so if you are looking for Karen's Doodles Easter Blog Hop, see below.  Thanks!

Do you have a love/hate relationship with exercising?  I did for a long time, but I'm actually beginning to like it - I know... what's wrong with me? lol!  I do see the benefits and it really is a great stress reliever!  I am happy to report that I am still going to the gym at least 4-5 times each week.  After surgery five months ago, I wondered if I ever would have energy again - ha ha!  God is faithful and is restoring me back to health as He promised : )

I have an exercise card for ya today!  What?!?!  Oh, you'll like it, I promise!  So, tomorrow is another Fairy Fun Fridays Challenge.  Come play with us!  This week the Fairy has challenged to use texture on our projects.  This was sooooo much fun for me.  I kept adding and getting new ideas.  Here is Lazy Boxer Beary.

I think Roberta intended this to be a 'male' bear, but it just screamed for pink - hee hee!  So why doesn't she have a top on?  I'm glad you asked!  You see, since I had a double mastectomy, I am officially allowed to go topless - LOL!!!  Not really... but it sounds good!  So, I'm being rebellious and making this Miss Lazy Boxer Beary.

Texture... lots of it!  I used pink Sparkly Fluff on her slippers, polar white Flower Soft for her tail (yes, it's white, but I colored it with my copics!) and gave her a pink satin waistband.  The ruffly background with ribbon is more texture AND you may not be able to see it, but I went around the polka dots on the dp with my embossing tool to give it a little more texture!

...and the inside!  Don'tcha just love it?

Now it's your turn!  Join in the fun and show us your texture projects.  Here's the link to Fairy Fun Fridays.  You'll see tons of inspiration from the lovely DT while you're there.  Go ahead and give em some love : )

Next up...  It's Easter!  Only three more days here in the US.

He is Risen, my friends!!!  The Resurrected Jesus is alive through those who believe.  I pray that you are among 'those who believe.'  I love you!

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul ~
