Gearing Up for an Index Card a Day

I'll be honest:  I suck at "Do a (fill in the blank) a Day" challenges.  However, I persist in attempting them because I think a daily art habit is essential to being an artist that continues to evolve over time, an artist who isn't afraid of beginnings because in truth, he/she never really stops.

Over at the wonderful blog Daisy Yellow, Tammy is looking for participants to take up her "Index-Card-A-Day" challenge.  I'll let you wander over there for all the details (you'll find lots of other lovely goodness at Daisy Yellow if you do some browsing) but it is super simple: art up an index card a day for June, July and August.

I love index cards for list-making and note-taking but I just knew that the paper would drive me crazy in the long term so I cut down some cold press watercolor paper into "index cards."  And then I remembered that I had a tiny journal project from way back, just sitting in a dusty card file so I dug those out too.  I'm going to give this challenge a whirl, especially since it is a great adjunct to my 90 days of blogging goal.  If I have nothing else to ramble on about, I'll at least have an index card worth of art to share.  Wish me luck...

I've decided to join Tammy's challenge too, and for exactly the same reasons as yours!!! Great minds must think alike, Michelle! After all, it's only one little card a day. Wonder how many I'll have by the end of the project!!! Hugs, Terri xoxo

I'm super happy that you {and Terri} are going to play along with the ICAD challenge. This is totally doable, and I will throw in a bunch of prompts to help along the way!
