Today marks the end of another year of ICAD (Index Card A Day) with Tammy Garcia of Daisy Yellow Art. It was my fourth time around over the seven years Tammy has hosted this challenge, but only the second time I actually finished with 61 cards.
I'm not very good at doing challenges and often skip them altogether. I'm a prompt resister too, so I often do my own thing. Which is lovely because Tammy supports a "no rules" policy. :) I fell behind and even lost count at one point. It was hard to not beat myself up about it. If you have found yourself behind, keep going.
I spent some time on the back porch this morning, sipping my cuppa and admiring my stack of cards; all the texture, color and threads. I love that good vibes feeling and celebrated my stick-to-itiveness this year. Sure there were a few days over the past month that I was making four or five cards to catch up, but I'm okay with that.
At the beginning of the 2017 ICAD challenge I discovered that a box from a Starbucks mug purchase was the perfect size for my index card art collection. I quickly set out to paint the box and viola!
Overall, I am very happy with my collection this year. (Click on a photo to enlarge & scroll). You might recognize where some of my inspiration came from. I tried a few new things this year, practiced making abstracts and found a way to make room for my sewing machine so I could add some stitching. I love seeing them on display together.
