ICAD: Looking Back

In my last post I shared my anticipation of this years ICAD Challenge. Today I picked out a few of my favorite cards from the past three years to share with you. I tried hard not go crazy but if you would like to see more check out my ICAD Flickr album or better yet the Daisy Yellow Challenges group on Flickr

I get a kick out of doodling my name each year. It makes me think about how I could never find personalized items with my name when I was a kid.

The card below is the 2nd card I made and I still love to play with color combinations. So where is card number 1? I found it here on the blog in this post

Houses are a personally meaningful image for me. These cards were a fun series. You can pick a theme, image, material or technique to play with for a while and feel free to change it up at any time. 

Often the simplest approach appeals to me the most. All of these cards are a combination of simple materials, like doing a daily creative warm up.


Some cards are mini journal pages in and of themselves.

Some are just plain fun.

Last year I was doing a 365 Project focusing on mail art. My focus and interest was recharged by combining the two challenges.
