Way to Go!

Hiya! I hope you're all having a good week and haven't been caught up in too much snow! We got about 2 inches on Monday morning but it was gone by lunchtime and that was all - fine by me!
I've just popped in to show a quick card I made yesterday. I got some of the Embossing Diffusers and my first thought was they'd be great for one layer cards. As this weeks LIM challenge is one layer week I had to try it! That's when the problem hit - this is the only sport or exercise related image I own! And I live with sports loving man!! I've had this little stamp for years though so I'm glad I've found a use for it! I coloured it with a white gel pen then went back over any mistakes with a black fine liner. I then used the same white pen to give some borders, it looked a bit lost without those. I hope you like it, thanks for looking!

PS. Sorry, didn't mean to just single out LIM, it's really perfect for ALL the challenges ~ I just had LIM on my mind!
