ICADs for July 17 through 23


For our penultimate week of Index Cards and Day 47, I found a cute image of a bride and her maids of honor in rain boots.  I thought it was such a cute image, I had to sew it onto one of my Index Cards. 

For Day 48, I paired a piece of fibrous tissue with a stamped image and sewed them together.  I added the name using a Micron pen.

On Day 49, I found this image in a magazine and paired it with a background from a tissue box I cut to Index Card size.  As much as I would have liked to sew the image in place, I felt the heavy material of the tissue box was more than I wanted to subject my sewing machine to, since I'm having a bit of tension problems.  Computer generated text completed the card.

Also for Day 49, using the rest of the tissue box, Bleubeard and I created a birthday card for Squiggles' third birthday.

For Day 50, the washi tape came out and so did a label from a food product.  The other words were computer generated.

Day 51 found me using a couple of maps and a punched circle to show where we were.  Of course, I had to sew the maps to the index card.  Unfortunately,  I cropped a bit too much of the right side of the card in PhotoShop.

I had some metallic balloon handles I wasn't using, so for Day 52, I created a saying that I thought would be appropriate and a good way to use these.

For Day 53, I colored an image I accidentally sized too small and printed.  Nothing goes to waste at my house, so I sewed the image to a colored index card.



Thanks for sharing this time with me.  I am so grateful you have stuck with me through these index cards.  Just one final week to go and this project will be in the books as completed.  However, please remember this is the only place you will find my ICADs, since I'm not on any other social media site that is sharing them.

I thought the girls wearing boots to the wedding was a cute image, and of course the kittens card was a winner!

I love the brides in boots! My hubby does some freelance photography for one of the local papers and often has to cover weddings. On time last year, he and none of the bridle party could get to the church because of the floods. In the end, all the local farmers came out with their 4x4’s and tractors and ferried everyone to the wedding not exactly on time but certainly on the same day! Terry got some amazing photographs.
These are all so good, but I especially love the one about the chain and the weakest link – a very true saying and a lovely image.

The variety of your ICADs is delightful. The image of the bride and bridesmaids with boots made me laugh. My favorite was the kitty faces on the birthday card for Squiggles. Happy Birthday, Squiggles.

YOU, have a great one.

They are all fabulous - I have troubles to chose only one favourite..I like them all... I guess the first two and the last one with the bird are my favourites here.

You get even more free and artsy with your ICADS - super challenge!

I am loving all of your ICAD, but I am drawn to the first one. It must have been a good sight to see the bride and her maids wearing wellies, I am still smiling.

Love all your icads, lots of great ideas and I love the sewing as an added embellishment. Want to figure out a way to use the brides and bridesmaids in wellies for save the date cards. Ubber cute!

Another great selection of ICADs. I think the boots image is very sweet and I can see why you wanted to use it. My favourite is the bird! I just love the background and of course the birds. For the sister card, which is another one I really like, that stamping looks pretty professional for someone who claims to not know how to stamp. :)
