The PS Patrol

...is showing off some sweet PS finds :)  The patrol is sent out to find super-fabulous projects using our stamps and templates!  Facebook, our Fan Flickr page and personal blogs are our favorite places to look.  These cards really caught our eye!

Angeline Yong Jeet Leen
I just love how playful this card is...so full of detail yet, so clean!
(Friendly Flowers)
























Isha Gupta
Just WOW!  This is a VERY coooool card!!!
She used the rectangle stamp from Hang Ups - pure genius!
(Sentiment Sampler)
























Tara Capewell
Tara created this sweet little design with stamped fish dots and a curved sentiment from Surf & Turf.  I think it's simply amazing!!



















Therese Calvird 
This is purple-tastic!!  Awesome use of some trendy chevron....her design packs a huge punch!!
(Yummers)






















Wendy ten Hove
Wendy's card also showcases Surf & Turf in a clever way...That rainbow whale just makes me happy :)  Did you notice the stamped sentiment background - yeah, it's awesome!
(Sentiment Sampler)






















The winner of our HOUNDSTOOTH background is:

I love this stamp - I've got a dress in Houndstooth, it's a fab pattern! x

...and today we are sharing our HIP TO BE SQUARE background.   This is another pattern that was created by Karolyn.  I LOVE it!!  I imagine popping up some of the blocks, coloring them in different colors, layering them for smaller squares...ack, I can't wait to create with this retro-cool pattern more!























One of these will be randomly given away today...and the winner will be posted tomorrow morning...please stay tuned...
