Like everyone else, around the holidays I am pressed for time. Take for instance this week, I have my 7 year old Grand Daughter, Hailie Jade staying with us this week, so my time is spent re-learning the board game “Life”, making paper turkeys for place markers for our Thanksgiving Dinner etc. etc. You know the stuff that a 7 year old likes to do. I’m hoping that some of what the board game of “life” teaches me this week I will be able to apply to my real life, lol. Because, you know, I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up yet. Don’t you think it is about time I figure it out?
Any how, being pressed for time I decided to put together a quick tutorial for you today. There are not many steps to this project. I kept it clean and simple. Enjoy!

On a 3.5″ square piece of Whisper White Card stock brayered Tempting Turquoise ink at an angle on the bottom right corner. Then brayered Not Quite Navy ink on the same corner, not covering the Tempting Turquoise ink entirely.
Stamped the bird from the Stampin’ Up set Peaceful Season using Basic Black ink.
Cut a 5″ x 6.5″ and a 3 5/8″ square pieces of Not Quite Navy Card stock. Also added a 4.75″ x 6.25″ Whisper White Panel. Adhered all the panels together accept for the largest Not Quite Navy Panel.
Stamped the Grasses from the Stampin’ Up Set Inspired by Nature using Basic Black ink and very firm presser on the stamp. Because you are stamping over multiple layers of paper there will be some gaps in your grass image. Use a Basic Black marker and fill in the gaps.
Sponged a bit of Basic Black ink at the bottom of the grasses.
Added the largest Not Quite Navy panel and here is the finished card front measuring 5″ x 6.5″.
May your day be peaceful and perfect.
Until my next post. . . . . .
