Truly Grateful Meets The Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge!

By | 10/06/2013

Operation Write Home has a weekly sketch challenge and this week’s sketch is so fabulous, I couldn’t resist participating.  The Gently Falling and Truly Grateful stamp sets just jumped off the shelf asking to be used for this sketch!  This is another one of those classic, quick and simple card layouts.  Imagine your favorite stamp set or designer paper as the focal panel on this sketch!

    This card came out lovely.  It really does feel like fall when looking at it.  Very nice job with some great colors.

    This may be a quick and simply card, but it is just beautiful. I just love the bold colors you used for the leaves. It’s easy to tell you used quality products and your stamping is perfect. Great job with this week’s OWH sketch!

    I love this stamp set – bought it not long ago.  You’ve done a fabulous job using it with this sketch.  The colors are all great together.
