Aspire in Brown's



I have decided that because so many of you are urging me on with my weight loss I'll try to add an update each week and those of you that are also trying to shed a little can comment and add your update too, we'll help each other on.



Now for today's card

I'm not sure why but I find something quite calming in shades of brown, I used the penny Black Aspire stamp for the image inked with SU chocolate Chip Ink and stamped onto cream card stock, 2 backing papers and some twill tape and a brown base card.



Attention to detail...

3 brown buttons tied with linen twine varying in sizes.


Frayed ends on the twill tape, I did this by accident to one end and liked it so the other end got frayed too.

Firstly I want to say how wonderful the card is and those colours are just what I enjoy, anything natural.
Secondly, I started my diet (or should we call it healthy eating) today, I have gained far too much so yes, I shall keep you company in this endeavour, so here's to our success!!
Thank you for all you do for others...
Love ~ Lady Anne xx
