Challenge #387 - Sketch 25

Hey LIMettes!

We're back with our latest challenge. However, before we go any further we have to point out that sadly we had to delete some entries to our last challenge, which is something we hate to do, as they didn't follow our guidelines.

We have clarified some of the terms so please take a moment to read our GLOSSARY OF TERMS and our HOW TO PLAY pages. To be eligible for our showCASe and PRIZE WINNER choices you will need to carefully follow the guidance on those two pages.

**********************************************************

Anyway, back to the challenge




This sketch is loosely based on a card that one of our regular entrants, Kathy K, made a while back. 

You can see the card that sparked the inspiration HERE (it's the second one in the post). We thought this would be a nice way to surprise her and thank her for being the only person that still holds true to the Less is More ethos of friendship and encouragement. Kathy always comments on the vast majority (usually all) of the other entries to our challenges, every week! Thank you Kathy and we hope you are flattered with our choice of sketch. 



We're joined by our November winner from last year, Toni of Frankie Helps Craft

Now let's see what fantastic inspiration the design team have created for you and please do check out their personal blogs if you have the time as there could be a couple of bonus cards there!

Challenge #386 - Water


We hope you all had a wonderful festive season and you're ready to sparkle with recharged creativity in 2019. As always, a new year brings new changes... and here at Less is More we say another goodbye...this time to Trina, who has a very bright year ahead of her. We wish you every success in 2019 Trina and we will all miss you terribly.

So, that goodbye actually left us with an additional DT place to fill!

Thank you to everyone that entered our DT call- you are all very talented people and it made it so hard to select just 3 of you. You're probably keen to know who the new designers are that are joining our team, so without further ado the lucky ladies are:

Right... to the challenge. For our first challenge of this year we have a theme of water.


Water in any of its forms eg ice, snow, mist, liquid
