Where does the time go?

Since moving Mom in with us time just seems to fly by and I don't seem to get anything done.  I am currently sharing my stampin' space with other stuff including 6 growing chicks who lately have been very noisy.  Can't wait till they move outside and start laying eggs!   Nothing like eggs that were laid that morning by your own hens.  We have been missing our own eggs since the neighbor's dogs decimated our flock down to one hen and she is so traumatized she isn't laying anymore, poor Penelope.  We got her a rooster friend and they are finally getting along although Penelope is definitely in charge!

So I can't believe a new catalog year is starting so soon, in just a few days.  I wanted to show you a card I made with the Naturals Composition Designer Series Paper, item # 126917    $ 9.71 that is currently retiring and on sale.   I have a Hostess Code for those wishing to order, CWCCMVN2
I noticed last night that they have added a few good things to the Clearance Rack so you can add those on too.

On to the card, I used a piece of Naturals Composition Designer Series Paper and my Aquapainter to pick up color from the top of the lid of Blackberry Bliss one of the new InColors.  This color will be available on June 2nd along with 4 other new colors.  I love them all.  Anywho, I washed the Naturals Composition Designer Series Paper with the color and when i had it to my liking I let it dry and buffed it with a paper towel to bring the embossed aspect of the paper to life.  This is so gorgeous in person,   I also did one card using the same DSP using White Craft Ink to whitewash the focal point.
