    Maggiebloom, the Jazz stamp is .44 and works for the first ounce and should be sufficient, as long as cards aren't chunky or too heavy.

    It will be interesting to see what assortment of paint chips you get from the three of us. I bet the assortment, and the colors sent, will give you a lot of variety to create art from. I see Helen has already given you the link to additional paiant chip samples so you should have FUN creating. And you have a new challenge to use a new product background.
    No paint chips? that just can't be. Americans won't put up with getting no paint chips. I think there would be a protest and possibly boycott bad stingy paint companies

    Take it easy, Jennie. It hasn't happened yet, and hopefully never will.

    But I wonder if the paint companies ever wonder why us wummin need so many paint chips to decide what color to paint the kitchen

    sent Marilou a stack of chips this morning... so have fun gal..

    and diggin though my stach I have some Martha Steward.. and these are really nice BUT.
    the color name is ONLY on the back of the chip... bummer...
    oh and I have some from "True Value Hardware store.. now these are large 4x7 and they are stickey back so you can stick them on your wall (or card ?) how cool is that

    the only thing I am worried about is, you want the color name on the 'subject' but all the names are on the very edge of the paint chip... will have to do some figuring how to fit this in....... thinking.................. still thinking

    ACK Helen-you changed it up on me! I was just waiting for you to host the PC again cause ya told me to hold on to them to use when you did Paint Chips again!!! : (
    guess I ain't so smart after all, huh?!?
    I did not even read the description obviously, as the envelope has sat there sealed since last time. remember they did not get mailed the 2nd time after they came back postage due, and it was too very close to the deadline to get to you on time with that delay.

    Not that it really matters, I used to live in Michigan, in the U.P.
    I mostly love the mushrooms on it!!!!
    do you know where you got them HHC?
    I have collected all manners of mushrooms since I was in the 12th grade. saw a MR incense burner and it was love at first sight! I still have it.
    when I graduated HS at least half a dozen friends got me MR gifts. whenever out I will brake for mushrooms if possible to catch a pix!

    We have paint chips here (though I am not sure they are called that) and they are free - Mariloupatch, I am surprised that you all don't have them there, for instance if you have Dulux paint, these are the paper strips that have 3 or 4 bands of colour on them that show what the colours look like - have a look at this google image search: http://tinyurl.com/7juukz4...

    The name doesn't have to be part of the "picture" you're creating, it just has to show. Like this one using beeswax and a paper napkin:
