I've made a deal with myself to participate in ICAD (Index card a day) every day during June & July to equal 61 cards. That's my plan and I'm sticking to it! If something happens and I miss a day I'll deal with it and continue. But it is my intention to do something creative (or not!!!) on an index card on a daily basis.
June 2, 2014 ☀ Index card #2
The theme this week is TEXT: found poetry, lettering, calligraphy, alphabets, quotes . . . and that appeals to me, so I am using this theme, which is optional. There are daily prompts as well. I did not go with the prompt for June 2nd, but I did for June 1st. The prompts and themes are there for you if you want them!
ICAD is a very well organized challenge, by Tammy Garcia of Daisy Yellow. Do check it out! It's my second year participating and I am excited to be taking part. What I like the best is the creative habit doing this instills in me. You might think,
Why do art on a throw-away office supply?
Well, that's the point! This year I find myself caring less what my cards look like and more that I just get into the habit of using my art supplies. I think Tammy says it best on the ICAD FAQs page (check that link!):
"The challenge is about the DOING and not the KEEPING or PRESERVING or ARCHIVING. It is the process of creating each day that matters."

I hope you'll join me, that would be fun! I took all of 15 minutes to do my June 2nd card and I felt so much better after I did! Any questions, let me know . . . .
