Yes You Can!



There's a new challenge up at Less Is More. This time it's a sketch. When I first looked at this sketch, I saw a jacket and tie. I also saw a spotlight. There are so many possibilities as you will see when you feast your eyes on the wonderful inspiration the Design Team has created.


Our sponsor this month is Skull And Cross Buns.


We're joined as Guest Designer by our November 2018 winner, Toni of Frankie Helps Craft. Toni's work is fun and clever, and her coloring is awesome! Take a stroll through her blog for some wonderful inspiration.

Keeping the jacket, tie and spotlight in mind, I created this card of encouragement for my son who is a college Freshman at an extremely academically rigorous school. He is also a three season athlete.  I never saw anyone work harder than he does. His grades are fantastic, but every now and then, he gets the blues and I like to send him a hug in an envelope. So that is where I went with this sketch. I just cut 2 triangles, stamped and die cut the sentiment, and added a little heart cut from a scrap of water colored paper.

Please head on over to the Less Is More Challenge Blog and check out the wonderful creations the Design Team has come up with for your inspiration. Play with us and share your take on the sketch! I can't wait to see all the ways the shetch is interpreted.
