My Pre-Easter Incentive


Recently I decided it was time to try yet again to beat the battle of the bulge - and the hardest part is getting started and breaking old habits. With Easter coming up I decided to make this card to sit on my dining table near the basket of Easter eggs - to remind me I'll be having to step on those scales afterwards - LOL.

This fun image is by Mo Manning and is called "Hoping". I created the background DP in Microsoft word and just dragged a few of the font versions out and re-sized to make my sentiment. A fairly CAS card for me but  it reminds me of the fresh clean white of the bathroom - where my dreaded scales are lurking.

Copics used - Skintones (R20, R11, E11, E00, E000) plus 100, N3, N1, N0, YG17, YG05, E49, E47, E43, E41, E40, E29, E23, R46, BG0000
