INDEX~CARD~A~DAY 2013 KICK OFF

Hi Everyone!


The Index-A-Day Challenge begins today! Go check it out at Daisy Yellow.  Tammy Garcia is hosting this Index-A-Day (ICAD) challenge during the months of June and July (61 days). Tammy will provide optional prompts and I might take her up on some if I get stuck or maybe like today, I will just incorporate a hint of the prompt. 

My intent is to do a Index Card A Day for 61 days. I'll post them on Daisy Yellow and Daisy Yellow Flickr Group and here. 

Ok, I saw Tammy's post and the prompt today was Zebra. I added black and white pattern to represent "zebra".

As for the entire challenge there really isn't a theme in mind, I’m taking my cues from Sunshine and Lollipops (aka my grand-daughters Brianne and Lyla). 


The plan is to post their cards weekly and that will most definitely depend on their “willingness” to co-operate (you never know!) on our days together. Yesterday, both wanted to paint and draw on the cards mainly because it was something new and different. Who knows what next week will bring!?! Lollipop (almost 4 yrs old) made two cards (she was excited):
Brianne (aka) Lollipop

I love her confidence in putting the colors together and after a minor mishap with her mom’s hairdryer catching on fire (really!) we let the paint dry on its own and then she drew her flowers.  

Zebra Tail?

 Little Miss Sunshine Lyla (almost 2) was having some difficulty with the size of the card, she prefers paper plate art.
Lyla (aka) Sunshine with help from Lollipop

 Big sister Brianne helped finish up the index card with a butterfly, sunshine and flowers while Sunshine napped.

Why not consider joining the ICAD group and join in the fun!

Happy index art!

I really like how you incorporated the black-and-white of a zebra into your card...and also the text "sunshine" and "lollipop". Too cute! I look forward to seeing more :)
