Don't have kids but...

... but inspiration ask you to do as if you did, well, you do!
Let me explain:
I rarely work from a sketch (I could say never...) so when I saw that this week's LIM challenge was a sketch I shivered from head to toe!
But a challenge wouldn't be one if it was always easy!
So I took the plunge and sat at my desk awaiting inspiration to strike.
I am not the kind of person to plan what I will use. I always go with the flow and never know at the start (nor alfway lol) what I will end-up with.
So when I started to imagine replacing the three circles with an ABC I quickly thought of the WMS griddle as a backdrop. I realised that it gave it a school feeling so I decided to make a "teacher" card although I haven't got any childrens.
I won't have any use for this card any time soon!

Without waiting any longer here is my card for the LIM (Less is More) challenge:

 I have to say that I love it!

You can find the challenge HERE
Have a look at all the entries as they are gorgeous!
See you soon!

Fabulous card - great take on the sketch! Maybe a friend or colleague with kids would like to use it since you don't have anyone to give it to?
