A year ago I was fortunate enough to attend a regional seminar for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. I was also fortunate to swap cards with many very talented ladies. One card from October 2005 inspired me to do a OSW (one sheet wonder) for some Thanksgiving cards. The original card that inspired me was made by a very talented stamper, leslierich of SCS. Click on her name for a link to her fabulous SCS gallery. Here is my inspiration card from Leslie.

Here is what I did for the cards that I made. I took 1 sheet of 8 1/2 Glossy White card stock, and stamped trees randomly on it using the Lovely as a Tree set. I used stazon black ink for this. When the ink dried I then used sponges and daubers to add some color to the trees, ground and sky.

I then cut the OSW into different sized pieces and designed simple cards using the pieces. I felt that the trees really looked like autumn scenery and were perfect for Thanksgiving greetings.
