WELCOMEHello! Welcome to my newest adventure in Index Card Challenges(ICAD). This is my personal challenge to myself to create an index card each day during the month of March 2016. I participated in a 60 day ICAD challenge with Daisy Yellow a few years ago and found it very inspirational and rewarding to create a small piece each day. I'll be posting my index cards each week and hoping you will join me in the fun. Please let me know if you are inspired to do your own challenge, I'd love to hear from you.
DAY 21 DICK BLICK ARRIVES
DAY 22 YARN ON.
DAY 23 MANGO MANGO MANGO
The mango trees are blooming all around the neighborhood! There's an abundance of pollen in the air from mangos, pine and oak trees. AHHH Chooooooo. It's allergy season in So. FL.
DAY 24 T. G. I. T.
DAY 25 EASTER DINNER ON THE FLY
DAY 26 TRIP JOURNAL
DAY 27 HE IS RISEN
DAY 14 The Final Rose
DAY 25 Preparing Travel Boxes
I'm prepping for my next adventure by making a "travel box". The paper mache boxes are perfect for storing trip memorabilia and look so cute when they are decorated with collage images on the outside and maps on the inside. I'll be sharing this with you in a post soon.
DAY 16- Making a List
Making lists is one of the stages of planning and prepping for a trip. I make lots of lists before taking a trip, don't you? If I don't write it down there's a chance it will be left behind. When packing it is helpful to keep the over-packing in check (I've been know to pack a FEW things un-necessarily).
DAY 17 St. Paddy's Day
A day my family loves to celebrate with the wearing o' the green, a few leprechaun tricks, a nice corned beef, cabbage and potato dinner and singin' the Irish tune O Danny Boy.
DAY 18 Spring Is Here
Ahh, a perfect day today with Spring temperatures and balmy breezes and vivid blue skies. My heart is ready for the Spring days and warming temps in the pool. Ready to work on my tan.
DAY 19 I Had Plans
Oh today was one of those rainy, dreary days where naps and books come into play and I don't really mind at all as I can escape into my latest book and not feel guilty in the least. Don't you love a nice rainy day?
DAY 20 Hosanna In the Highest
Today is Palm Sunday and our church has celebrated the beginning of Holy Week with the early service in the park with breakfast and Easter Egg Hunt afterwards. It's always a big event, this year we were going to be on the Indian River at the Tuckahoe Mansion. We anticipated great crowds, even ordered sunglasses for everyone since we'd be facing into the sun! As it turned out, it was pouring rain and the event at the park was cancelled. That did not dampen (pardon the pun) our spirits as we celebrated in our church the coming of Jesus to Jerusalem. Yes, we wore our SON glasses!
DAY 8 Toy Box
A gray metal box holds my favorite toys on my worktable. My favorite toys are jars of paint brushes, a bright pink spray bottle filled with water (although here it is painted orange), red scissors and more spray bottles and brushes.
DAY 9 Brighter Day
DAY 10 Practicing Drawing Fruit
Today I practiced drawing fruit for a project I'm working on. I'll share that with you soon. So I thought why not make an Index card out of this?
DAY 11 Veggie Practice
Here's my eggplant and a carrot.
DAY 12 Adventures are coming!
DAY 13 Color Play
New Sharpies and some fun playing with them on an index card. Not every card need be a work of art! But I do love playing with the colored pens and making the dots and dashes.
DAY 1 Calculating Risks.
DAY 2 Joy Fading.
DAY 3 Shaggy Chic.
DAY 4 Joyful.
Day 5 Final Push.
Day 6 The Green Jar
Day 7 Old School Spools
