I went to a crop and created THREE cards to share with you today - woohoooo!

For this card, I used the new FLOWER FRAME DIES along with a sentiment from Huge Hugs 2 stamp set. Our Flower Frame dies creates fun frame and big flower accents :)

I used the new UNICORN DIE on this card.  You don't see the alicorn because I didn't use it.  
The unicorn "horn" is a separate die so that you can create super cute horse or donkey accents. 
 The sentiment is from our Uplifter's stamp set.

And this card showcases the new WAVY PATTERN DIES and WAVY WISHES STAMP SETS and DIES

In 2016, a woman bought a $10 scratch-off ticket to show her husband that lottery tickets are a waste of money. The ticket turned out to be worth $1 million.

There’s a prestigious college to train nannies for the rich and famous. Norland College is “nearly impossible” to get into, and the current nanny for Prince George and Princess Charlotte was trained there. They learn self-defense and even how to evade paparazzi.

By 1932, Mickey Mouse had lost his edge since becoming a role model for children. Disney wanted to create a character to portray more negative character traits, which could no longer be bestowed on Mickey. That’s when Disney started working on a short-tempered character named Donald Duck.

Over 500 years ago, Leonardo da Vinci made an interesting observation about trees. He concluded that the total thickness of a tree’s branches is equal to the total thickness of the tree trunk. Trees across many species obey this rule. Explanations involve hydrological and structural theories.

In China, toilet paper theft is such a big problem that someone created facial recognition software that makes you stare a computer in the eye for toilet paper dispensing. 1 piece per person.

Colored toilet paper used to be really popular back in the 70’s, especially matching it to your bathroom decor. Doctors warnings and possible damage to the environment affected sales so badly companies stopped making it.

Paper Smooches - PS Patrol JULY 2017

It's PS Patrol Day - YAY!
I found some really AWEsome cards to share with you all today :)

Carolyn King 
oh my word - this just stops my heart!
I love how she used our elephant stamp and cross stitched onto it!
I am in AWE :)
(Cross Stitch Die, Birthday Sampler, Huge Hugs)

This CAS card is so sweet and delicate.  I love every inch of it!

This is such an adorable baby card.  I am sure it would look amazing with pink as well.
(smiling BIG)

I love that Shelly clustered all of the images and sentiment together.  It makes a HUGE impact!

This card is so soft and lovely, but I especially love the white pen dots on the die.  It looks so cool!

When you get a sunburn, it’s not your skin cells being damaged by the sun and dying, it’s your skin cells’ DNA being damaged by the sun and them killing themselves so they don’t turn into cancer.
