Get Creative with Paint Chip Cards . . . POPS of Color and Fun!

If you're like me you love to collect those little "freebies" called Paint Chip Cards. It seems the colorful display at the home improvement stores just draw me in and I can stand there for much longer than necessary inspired by the wall of color . . . and I never leave without at least a handful of the colorful cards tucked safely in my pocket for future painting, uh, well projects of some kind.  So when I came across my collection this morning it inspired me to do a little google surfing for some creative ways that I might be able to use these awesome little chips of color! Plus, with my daughter moving into her new apartment today you never know I might just need to break out the chips for a little color somewhere in the room!
