Hi friends...ok here's the SALE information.
Please read the details carefully...I did my best to be as specific as possible to avoid confusion :)

The sale is on Saturday and Sunday only (FEB 25, and 26)
take note that times are mountain time

SATURDAY FEB 25 ONLY...the FREE TAM will NOT be the Let's Celebrate stamp set.  Instead, orders that are over $60. after sale discount has been applied will receive Dots & Dashes Dies and Thank you Die.

SUNDAY FEB 26 ONLY...the FREE TAM will NOT be the Let's Celebrate stamp set.  Instead, orders that are over $60. after sale discount has been applied will receive Flag Tags stamps and Happy Birthday 2 Die.

ALL orders placed through the end of February will receive one Tiny Hearts Dies for FREE.

The sale is valid on products currently in stock.  At the moment, the only product that is out of stock is Botanicals 2 stamp set. 

The Let's Celebrate stamp set is still available to purchase and will become the free TAM set again on Monday, Feb 27 and Tuesday, Feb 28.  I needed to substitute the free TAM product during the sale because it's so hard to anticipate demand. 

Have an awesome weekend

I was thinking of how fun it is that our design team is spread across the US.  Each heart represents one of our designers in their home state (not their city).  I appreciate our designers so incredibly much <3

And here is my card...

I used a new shaped card die called Cat Dog Card Die,
BUT, I wanted to create an owl, so I used  different dies from this super fun set that's shown below my card
The sentiment is from our Hooties stamp set.

The possibilities are endless...There are shapes that can be used as smiles or eyebrows.  The shape that I used for the owl feathers is a tongue but it can also be used as hands to hold the card.
Our team is so super awesome that I cannot wait to show you what their clever minds came up with.  
March will be FULL of inspiration!

In 1956, a magician was performing the “cut a person in half” trick using his wife for a televised performance. Immediately after she was divided, the host ended the show. People were horrified, thinking she had been killed, but time had just run out on the broadcast.

WOW, February always flies by, doesn't it.  It has just 2 less days than some months, but seems so much shorter :)  It's been a wonderful Anniversary month so far for Paper Smooches.  How about another giveaway?

I have one of these brand new beauties below to give away:

Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors are handcrafted, professional-quality Japanese watercolors with a highly blendable, creamy-smooth consistency. The colors are rich and intense, and exhibit greater opacity than European or American watercolors in traditional Japanese style.
Try these lush watercolors for sketching, illustration, sumi-e, etegami, ink-like wash painting, and more. All colors are certified non-toxic. Pans measure approximately 2" × 1".

This watercolor set retails for about $30.00

I'll meet that value and also offer up a $30. Paper Smooches gift code prize for a second lucky winner.

AND a THIRD winner will be chosen as well...the prize...I'm not sure yet, it will be a surprise :)

Just comment here and tell me your favorite COLOR.  You have until midnight on February 23rd to comment.  Winners will be announced on February 24th.

Our PS DT blog hop is this will have your first peeks of our March release.  It's BIGGER than normal (pun intended)
