It's a tricky one at Less is More this week. The challenge is a one-layer card with a sports or exercise theme. I couldn't think of a single sports or exercise image in my collection besides a bicycle. However, I do have a little set from Amuse called sports words. It has a single star image and a variety of sports-related sentiments such as go team, way to go, and super star.
I made two small notecards. For the first card I repeated one sentiment (Way to go!) several times creating three lines of text across the card. On the second card I lined up three different sentiments to create my lines of text. Using a gridded block made pretty quick work of this. I stamped the star image in Memento cantaloupe, which I love.
It just so happens that my soon to be 11-year old daughter is playing basketball this winter for the first time ever, so one of these cards will be for her. I think it can be scary to try something new, especially as one gets older. We're proud of her for stretching herself quite a bit with this. Most of the girls on her team were new, too, so she didn't feel way behind. Unfortunately, though, they're playing some very experienced teams. They had their first game last Saturday and they lost big time, as in 64-4! They sure learned a lot, though. :)
