ICADs for week 1

This first week is a short one, with only Days 2 through 5.  As promised, I will post a week's worth of ICADs every Sunday through July 31.  Without further ado, here are the Index Cards I created each day.

"Love is on the line."   (June 2, 2016)

"Hindsight is always 20/20." (June 3, 2016)

"Literary Arts." (June 4, 2016)

"Love letter straight from the heart." (June 5, 2016)

You will notice I am not using my watermark on these.  I see no reason to, since both Bleubeard's and my name are on them each day.  It's the one time I seem to remember to sign my work.

All materials are left over from various pages I have created this past month, or postage stamp remnants I used to send packages to others.

Thank you for joining me for this first week of ICADs.  Your support of my art always makes me smile.

Lovely variety, I like 'love on the line' best, what a wonderful idea. Enjoy your Sunday, hugs, Valerie

I admire folks who can accomplish a daily challenge. The variety of work and ideas through the month is something I've noticed when you've done this challenge before. I might could do one a week. Maybe lol But probably not ;)

These are very clever. I love using hearts and you really put them in some thought provoking arrangements. I love art when there is some intelligence behind it, in some way shape or form. (Though I think I go for more pretty most of the time since after work I am rather brain dead some days.) Since it is raining today I am planning on some art fun. :) So I will mention the sunburn piece to my page yesterday was not me but my hubby. He applied some sunscreen rather haphazardly, so the results were a mosaic sunburn of pretty epic proportions and some very white skin where the sunscreen was. Funny now, but for him, not so much then. I love remembering the little stories from an adventure. Hope you have a great sunny and dry Sunday. Enjoy-Erika

This are very clever and beautiful made heart pieces...I adore the stitching and I see that you use more of your wonderful handwriting now... you know that the only person that don't like your handwriting is you!
Happy Sunday Elizabeth!

Cute! I always enjoy seeing what anyone does with sewing on paper but have never tried it. Your icads are really cute! :)

Lorraine said...

Such a great start. I don't think I've ever seen variegated sewing thread before. Love it!

These are all so pretty and I love the added stitching to each. Love them all!

These are really lovely, they are so light. I like the way you are using the heart motif, the stitching and the minimalist colours combinations. Hard to chose a favourite, maybe the last one because of the words and the very clear design.

Dianne said...

oh so fun ICADS! 'Love' the love is on the line, and of course the stitching!! ♥

Elizabeth, I'm so glad you're doing ICAD again this year and I love the cards you made for the first short week! The colours and stitching are just lovely, and I wonder if you're going to be doing a theme for the whole sixty one days?! I' look forward to finding out.
