PS Patrol - SEPTEMBER 2017

It's PS Patrol Day :)
Check out these awesome cards that I found on the web <3

I love how her background looks like a coloring book!
Her tag is beyond adorable.  I love the colors she chose <3

I'm not sure what I love most...the water colored background, the wood grain dirt or the adorable dinosaur.  This is an AWESOME card!!

Sweet can go a LONG way.  I love the clean look of this card.

This card makes me gasp with excitement!  I LOVE the colors, the design, the texture, the bold impact - it's ah-mazing to me!

Valerie Ward 
ahhh, I adore the soft and subtle background.  The bold colors really POP!
She colored beautifully - LOVE!

Nonni created this lovely card for us.  
She chose a perfect sentiment since it does give me a calming feeling.  I LOVE it!

The inventor of the web, Tim Berners-Lee, has one regret: adding the double slash // to URLs. In retrospect, he says, it was totally unnecessary.
