ICADs for week 2


Here are my ICADs for the second week in June.

"Things aren't always" (June 6, 2016).  The  tape is supposed to be double stick, but it isn't.  The flip-flops and other beach scene goodies in the picture are actually cookies and cupcakes.

"Sign on the dotted line." (June 7, 2016)

"If you build it, they will come." (June 8, 2016)

"Lost Lake, Alaska." (June 9, 2016)

"The fractured heart." (June 10, 2016)

"Leftovers." (June 11, 2016)

"An easy way to share memories of special times with special people." (June 12, 2016)

I felt like this week's ICADs were a bit lacking, but I spent so much time on my second Thursday tutorial this past week, I had very little time for much else.  Speaking of that tutorial, you might recognize several of these are "rejects" or left over from said tutorial.

As always, I appreciate the time you took to visit, because this is the only place you will see these ICADs.

What fun cards again Elizabeth! I love the fractured heart especially - that stitching really grabs me! I like the top one too, and you definitely fooled me with the cookies (and I'm sorry you got fooled by your tape - oh well you'll have something to wrap presents with! I have actually had to use double stick tape for that because it's often the only tape I have on hand - it doesn't work that well! ).

Lovely ICADS, you always have great ideas! Have a nice afternoon, it's bed time here. Hugs, Valerie

You have a great sense of understatement and symbolism on these cards Elizabeth. How do you think of this? I really enjoyed this set as much as your last set. I brought some cards home from work, and opened them up to play with some, and they were so thin and flimsy, I guess I need to buy some. Because I want to try this. Not that mine will come out as good as yours. Hope it was a good weekend.

I love this card set. Each one has a different feel to it and you manage to use up some of your decorative scissor pieces too.. Great job x

I think they are great and as always, I admire your ability to fulfill your commitment to the challenges you participate in.

Great thoughts and words with this blog today.

Thank you coming over to see me today.

The celebrations were this weekend as it is the Queen official birthday not her actual. She has two birthdays 😊

Xxx

Your ICADs may be using leftovers but Oh what leftovers! Clearly a case of "It ain't what you do it's the way that you do it!" I love the fractured heart and those cookies look good too!! I must apologise for this catch up session - I had no idea that a poor internet connection would put me so far behind! (Of course having grandson to stay unexpectedly on Saturday interrupted my blog hopping!) Big Hugs, Chrisx

Fun to always see how nothing goes to waste in your artwork... my kinda gal :-)
Those bits and scraps came together really nicely in this batch of index cards E!
Fractured He♥rt and Lost Lake Alaska spoke to me especially in their simplicity and message.
I went to our local paper shoppe the other day and forgot I needed double stick tape hah that was the thing I went for. Guess that means I'll have to go back oh oh!
