Art Therapy - Paper Take Weekly

In the middle of painting, packing, cleaning, moving furniture and preparing one house while leaving another, it was time for some Art Therapy!  This weeks Paper Take Weekly challenge was stripes andspots.  It is not as easy as it sounds.  If it were a fashion spread, it would be like a bad golfing outfit.  When making a card stripes and spots are fun and, the possibilities are endless.  

I appreciate taking time out to have a little fun and enjoyed making this card. So I had to unpack a couple of boxes to find my art supplies, it was well worth the distraction.  Visit for some creative ideas.

Pastel Card - Paper Take Weekly

This weeks Paper Take Weekly challenge was using pastel colors for a card. I embossed a few sea shells, added some paper lace and that was it. Visit for some inspiration with pastels.

Paper Take Weekly-Circles and Ribbon

My husband and I have sold our home in Virginia and are moving back to N.E. We have until the end of May to find jobs and rent to buy a home or rent a home here for a few months and sock some down payment money away because our mortgage will be paid off. I still had to stop everything and participate in this weeks Paper Take Weekly because its fun.

Paper Take Weekly: this week circles and ribbon. I did this quickly in between packing boxes and packing linen (linen sounds exotic doesn't it? what I mean is sheets. I wish someone would invent the fitted sheet folding gizmo and yes I would pay $19.95 for it.)

From my stash, a half circle.
