ICAD 2013 - June Week 1

Hello there.  So what is ICAD 2013 (Index Card a Day) you may be asking.  Its something I was completely unaware of until I spied the link to it on Carmen's blog last Friday and my curiosity got the better of me.

Its an idea that Tammy runs through June and July, you get a stack of 3 x 5 index cards and have them on your desk then each day you make a minature work of art on them.  At the end if you manage to keep up you should have 61 little cards all decorated.  Here is the link to Tammy's fab blog Daisy Yellow where you can find all the information.  Tammy does provide some themes and prompts but you can just do your own thing.

I was late to the party as I had to get my hands on a pack of the cards but have worked away in the evenings in the latter half of the week and have managed to play catch up

Here's my cards for week 1.  I have to say I have really enjoyed just sitting at my desk in the evening playing around to see what I can come up with.

  1. Oh Suzy these are stunning. Where the FB group is so busy I had missed some of these so am glad you've done this post.

    Love the background on your angels and the colours on all of them.

    Was hoping to upload mine last night but no. 7 is proving a pig to photo so going to try and get a natural picture out the back in a minute. All the rest played nice and just got bunged in the scanner!

  2. Lovely cards, I had also missed a couple of these on the FB group so it's nice to see them all together.

  3. Oh Suzy they are fabulous, still deliberating as to whether to join in with this one or not?

    1. It's such great fun Virginia so you should jump in. I'm hoping to use it to practise various styles and techniques and there's so much inspiration from all the gorgeous cards on the fb group

  4. Suzy these are fab well done on catching up. Its going to look fab once its done.

  5. great job! I also love how you have displayed your whole week's work so nicely on your blog and then shared the link on the group. Nice to meet you! lenna

  6. Suzy these are gorgeous! Is this another group I should be joining ? Where do you come across these xx
