I'm Athletically Challenged

It's sad, but true!


Soooooo... when I saw this photo


and learned that is was the PHOTO INSPIRATION for this week's

Crafty Ho Challenge...


I thought, Me-on-my!!! Whatever will I do?!?!?!


Shhhhhh! Please don't tell, but I didn't even know who "Lance" is. I had to google it.

According to wikipedia (not the most reliable online source, I know), Lance Armstrong is an American former professional road racing cyclist who is best know for wining the Tour de France a record seven consecutive times, after having survived cancer. WOW! That's impressive!

I had some ideas of directions to go, but upon searching my stamping stash, I couldn't find a single cycling image, nor did anything else really jump out at me. Then I happened upon a cute little fellow - a Lori Boyd Puddle Jumper - and an idea was born.



For my take on the Photo Inspiration, I chose to color my image with the colors of the clothing Lance is wearing in the picture. It works for me!



I didn't think the card was quite complete, though...



So I put an inspirational quote/sentiment inside:
