A couple of projects

I have a couple of projects to share today...

First of all, I fell in love with this photo for Paper Smooches Picture Perfect Sparks Challenge:

Isn't it fabulous?
I would love some sweet jars like these!
Seeing as I recently ordered some fun dies from Paper Smooches,
I decided to make a card for the challenge:

I stamped my background using Simon Says Stamp Wide Stripe stamp.
I die cut the word dies from aqua mist card stock & matted the card on the same.
For the buildings, I die cut them from white card stock and
water coloured them by pressing some aqua mist/hawaiian shores &
sweet blush/berry sorbet inks onto my craft mat, spritzing them with water and then
painted them on with a wet paint brush. Such a fun technique! 

I also have three Monthly Moments pocket scrapbooking cards
on the Chickaniddy Crafts blog today.
I'd love for you to come and check them out!

Here's one of them:

Super sweet, right?
Here's how it looks in my album:
