It's time to share my latest decorated index cards or ICADs. I've actually cheated and finished the one for today last night when I realized my internet was no longer functional. I took these to my friend Sally's and now have scheduled three posts because I have no telephone OR internet (both are served by AT&T). Using Sally's phone, I called AT&T, but due to the three day holiday, they can't send anyone out until Tuesday between 2 pm and 4 pm. So, those of you signing up for T will have to get by without me until they figure out what is wrong with my phone and internet. I fear it's due to all the rain, but I can't be sure.
"Untitled 3." (June 27, 2016) I considered using a staple on this bouquet of flowers, then opted for sewing, instead.
"Beach Day." (June 28, 2016) I wish I was at the beach, but these images of a happy day at the beach was all I could muster.
"Untitled 4." (June 29, 2016) More flowers, my final in fact, this time using strips of leftover patterned paper.
"Polska." (June 30, 2016) A collage I created from items I had thrown in my scraps basket.
Now that the month is over, here's a look back at the 30 index cards I made in June.
"Going Green." (July 1, 2016) More leftovers too large to pitch. The background was created using a bingo dabber, much cheaper than those expensive dabbers a certain big name company sells.
"It's cool any season." (July 2, 2016) Juxtaposition of summer's bounty paired with a winter snowman.
"The circle of love." (for July 3, 2016) Since I'm busy preparing for Independence Day celebrations and visitors, I quickly put together a few more pieces left over from previous art projects so I could get these on my blog.
Thanks for joining me for a look back at this week's ICADs, as well as those I created during the month of June. This is the only place you will see them unless Tammy has created another linky, so I greatly appreciate your visit.
