First up I have a little easel card I put together quickly yesterday
I used Melissa Frances papers and an image by Marianne Design - all available at Running With Scissors.
The sentiment stamp is by Stampin' Up as is the punch I used to shape it, everything is inked in Malted Mauve chalk ink.
The border punch is by Martha Stewart.
The gorgeous crinkly ribbon was a gift from my dear friend Margaret.
Speaking of whom, these next pics are for you Margaret lol
Only kidding, I am going to share Neil's before and after pics too, he did the full Insanity programme with me, supporting me and keeping me company. I did get his permission to put these on here.
Neil didn't have as much weight to lose as me but he did lose a few pounds and quite a few inches too, he generally got much leaner and was aiming more for definition and cardio conditioning - both of which he achieved.
I am so proud of him, as my friends and family know, Neil struggles due to his illness and to complete this programme with very little balance and total numbness absolutely amazes me - he truly did inspire me to keep going.
Thanks Neil, love you and so very proud of you, I am so happy we shared this experience xxx
Lastly thankyou so much for everyones really lovely comments yesterday, I was worried about sharing the photos but you all made me feel much happier about it, thanks for the support xxx
