So we just finished up week 2 of ICAD! It has been such a blast so far! I'm enjoying the creating time as much as I'm enjoying the time I take to try and see as many other cards as I can. Trust me there are a lot! So much inspiration and creativity in one place!
Tammy is also good about posting weekly prompts for those that choose to use them. So far I haven't really been in a prompt mood so I've just kind of done whatever depending on the day. Tammy did have a challenge with her friend Lauren that she shared. You can see that post here. It was basically a stapled collage challenge. I fell in love with the cards they both created and decided to give it a try this past week. Let's just say I have found a new addiction! You will see that in some of this weeks cards!
#10 "Try It!" This was where my new addiction started! This was my stapled collage. Of course I didn't read the challenge very well the first time, because Tammy and Lauren only used one staple! Well this has several plus some stitching, because I love stitching! I was so excited when Tammy chose to post this card for the day on the FB group page! Since making this card I've made several more stapled collages and have since done several 'inchies" using stapled collage. I will have to share my inchies in another post this week.
#11"They got some man hair" Yep another stapled collage. For the most part I really try to have a sense of humor in most things. So of course some days that carries over into my creations. So when I found the sentence, "They got some man hair" I new I had to use it! I actually found it in an old children's book!
This second week has been so much fun. I've tried new things, spent more time creating, and enjoyed seeing what others create. For the third week I'm already ahead of schedule, but my goal is to continue to create everyday even if it's just a few minutes! Hope you take some time to yourself this week no matter what you enjoy doing! It's so worth it!
